Remember Rose has the votes of many republicans who know what she has done. That make the boys nuts too.
Rose and Chilelli (sp) sued the cunty for thousands of dollars and won!. No, her ideas are ideas that she takes from when she worked for the state. And we all know how wonderfully run the state of NY is :(
her ideas have done nothing but cost money with NO results. She is a bitter woman with nothing better to do than obstruct ANY type of real progress. And that goes for her yes man, Hartman.

You are so funny. Do you think if you state lies here, they will be believed? On what grounds did they sue and how much did they win? Do you know how to county? How can she obstruct anything with only one vote? You are either an idiot or a liar..oh not wait there is another choice. A liar and an idiot. We all know Rose will win again because all you boys could find to run against her is a near blind engineer who can only say what they want him to say. Hartman will beat that loud mouth Luppino and you will still only have 3 democrats on the legislature. But with Hartman and Rose there, the boys can think they are being obstructed from building a too big, too expensive jail. Shucks if that happens the taxpayers will loose again, right?

Helen speaks before she thinks and Hartman can't think.

The jail is by far the least of Herkimers worries. No matter what happens with the jail it will never effect us.

You're right whatever the outcome the 3 make little to no difference.

I love topix. Give a forum for spineless people who never stand up for anything, and the the true problem with the county becomes apparent.

1. Helen Rose is an obstructionist? So, asking questions and questioning illegal activities is wrong? Wait, doesn't she work within the boundaries of a democracy? Now I get it. People dont like democracy. Anything that does not match the dictators must be wrong.

2. Where are you critics when there is a county meeting? Where are your voices? Have you even asked a question in public? Nope.

Lets face it, most of the writers on this site are gutless wonders who are scared of their own shadow. They have no honor or ethics. Dont blame others, blame yourselves.

I checked the phone book but you're not in it. I see your first name is Herkimer, is "teaparty" the correct spelling of your last name? Or are you some spineless fk who never stands up for anything?

Yup, Helen's an obstructionist. By continuing her demands for survey, after survey...report after report and bs audits, she has cost this county thousands of dollars. Her demands for bullshht surveys, reports and audits have uncovered zilch.

Oh...and the big idea about the newest group that can build the jail for "millions less" is a bunch of crap. Wait until their plans come back and are rejected by the state.

It would be fine if Helen was complaining about something that's actually wrong with the county. Then maybe come up with a "valid" idea to improve a current situation. Again, It's one thing to point out shortcomings....but if you don't have solutions I'd think you'd might want to slow down.

I am so glad I get to vote for helen again. The cost of the jail will effect us all and some of you must not be taxpayers or you would know that. Build the basics with no frills. These bums don'd deserve frills. Somebody is getting rich on all the jail constructions in the New York and they should get to the bottom of it. If Helen deserves "the blame" for obstructing the building of the jail I'm sure she will accept that. She will have saved us millions and those of us who pay taxes will be thankful for that. She is the one who offered it as an alternative years and got a few of the free thinkers to follow up. You can see from past posts on various threads there is a group of self-serving idiots who want to keep all information to themselves and they are ticked that the there are people like Helen and Hartman who do their research and can see what they are up to. Keep up the good work Helen. You have them scurrying.

Compare our legislature to the rest of the state. We are in good shape, without question.

The last thing we need is Helen, Hartman and the rest of the GED Herkimer village bankrupt board getting elected to the legislature.

When the county is in the red and upside down in lawsuits against the dumbest village in the state, I will then vote for change.

They have half of the jail paid before the construction starts.

All helen has done from day-one is cost the county extra cash chasing windmills.

At what costs?$45,000 per day taken out of the local private economy in a 1/4% sales tax, millions in Tobacco money that could have gone to public health, roads, infrastructure.

The jail will ultimately save/make the county money.

What health? Do you mean like Medicaid?

What roads and infrastructure is the county responsible for that need work? Do you mean like the hydraulic in Herkimer?

Where do we start: The pumpkin patch that cost Hundreds of thousands of dollars aver the last 13 years and still there is nothing there: Who runs Herkimer County? Republicans. The prison: Take a 1/4% more out of the local economy for years and still can not decide what to build, where to build or if we need to build. Again! who runs Herkimer County. Yep Republicans. But they all make sure they have their cadillac health plans and after 10 years in office paid get the same plan for life. Yet they cut meals on wheels , social services etc. Yes sir a great job they are doing. And some of worry about Helen Rose and Gary Hartman. WOW !

Simply ask helen or any legislator if she caused audit's that cost the county money and came up with nothing. She's a dk.
I know that Mrs. Rose not only saved the county a bundle but also saved them from a criminal investigation because of shady dealing in Public Health. You can't have employees and the head of the place filing false pay records and not hold them responsible. She made the boys see they couldn't win that one and now you have a new head of the office. The gang can't stand that employees trust Rose to cover their a** and she won't rat them out and tell her sources. You have no idea what she has saved the county taxpayers behind the scenes. Watch the meetings. they have to bid what the never bid before, and the state told them they needed better policies. That is stuff you don't read about in the papers. She has my family votes.

Shady dealings, my azzz. An audit was done. The money was in account #1 instead of account #2. The money was all there and always was. Helen knew where the money was. She simply wanted to make a point (be a dk) and cost us money in the process. Sell your bullshht somewhere else.

Let's start with, the Legislature helped the Arms hire 600+ with a 2million dollar grant/gift in 2009.
The County has the lowest tax increases, as far back as I can remember of any taxable jurisdiction in Herkimer County.
The county reduced the number of county employees by 20% over the last 10 years.
New businesses in our area. Feldmeier's is building a new plant as we speak and will be hiring 50 new people to start.
&
The Legislature helped relocate an auto parts supply facility in order to keep it in our county.
The County is in the black.
The Legislature assisted the municipalities in the past with the 1% sales tax. Now the county uses that 1% to cover our unfunded state mandates and our Medicaid.
The decision on the jail has been made for years. They're just dealing with delays of ignorance at this time.
Helen has cost the county tax dollars with frivolous bs. By continuing her demands for survey, after survey...reports after reports and bs audits she has cost this county thousands of dollars. Oh...and the big idea about the newest group that can build the jail for "millions less" is a bunch of crap. Wait until their plans come back and are rejected by the state.
Hartman is a useless dumbfk trying to act like his brain isn't fried.

Worried about loser and loser? Nope. Who runs the county? Republicans. And some worry about a 1/4 of 1 percent. WOW !
