The Village Board? Who the hell cares? I'm not impressed. My dog could run for that, and knowing some of the people that have been elected, probably stand a shot at being the first canine board member. When the state has to step in, somethings wrong. Howdy Doody has overstayed his welcome. He might have been ok as mayor years ago. He has gotten too lazy and obviously takes the position for granted now. Time for new blood. Take a ride down Main Street. I did the other day. It was frightening. I was glad I was in a car with the doors locked. Able bodied scumbags who clearly needed a bath and a few dozen less tattoos clogging the sidewalks when they should have been at, oh what the hell do they call it? Oh, that's right, work. Two visibly intoxicated men staggering down the sidewalk. A woman who looked like a throwback to a 1970's prostitute in a doorway. No less than 3 people ASLEEP in doorways. Lets not forget the baby mommas. 2. One pushing a stroller, the other looking like she had a basketball under her wifebeater. I thought Tupac and the Notorious BIG were dead. No they aren't. They were on Main street. Trash all over. Not people. Actual trash. Empty storefronts. Every single place needed a coat of paint or at the very least a power wash. 1 loose pitbull looking dog and a bank turned tanning salon?!? Really?!!!!
Rumor has it Herkimer was nice 40 years ago.
When the nicest establishment is Crazy Otto's, something is wrong. I think we need to evacuate the dozen or so normal people here, nuke everything else, and start over.
