What is the point of posting pictures of properties in disrepair over the internet? How is the helping the campaign of those running for office? Not one canidate has addressed the issue and has given a possible solution to the problem. That problem would and will exist under either party that wins this election, anyone that thinks otherwise is nieve. If anything I think people are sick of the constant negativity towards Herkimer, how do you expect to win, with a campaign that constantly criticizes and belittles the very place where the constituents live? How about we hear about some policy changes?

Maybe the pictures are posted because we are fed up with the current administration. The Mayor, a Trustees and village employees let this happen. No codes enforcement, lack of police presence and ineffective village laws lets this village become a free for all and the results is the current condition of the community. It's time for change. I can not believe an election sign can say Experience, Integrity, Dedication the proof of this is in the community. Ainsworth, Nichols and Markey should all resign in disgrace. It's time to crack these overpaid union contracts, consolidate services and elect new leadership and put an end to these insane lawsuits. Mr. Village Attorney when we sue the county as village, town, county residents, we pay the legal bills for both sides. Did I forget to mention the village attorney should be sent packing.

And the only other person running for mayor is on the board - and has done nothing. I"ll stick with what I know. At least we know he speak in a logical sentence.

No codes enforcement? We have two codes enforcers! No police presence? The board cut the police department by two men and cut their daily shifts to two cops on the street, you want one to be assigned to Main St? Ineffective Village laws? So you're saying the village attorney or judges should be fired? The village had another attorney to lose all the county battles, yes that's more money wasted. We can't get rid of the part time employees (board members, judges, etc...) because that would mean they wouldn't get their benefits anymore. Just like all the board members get a salary and full benefits for one or two meetings a month and running the village into the ground financially.Agreed that Ainsworth, Nichols and especially Markey (since he doesn't even pay taxes as he lives with his mommy & daddy) should be tarred & feathered but Brindisi is NOT the answer! What has he done while he's been on the board? What did he do on the school board? What did he do as a Police Officer for his entire career? Again, Brindisi is NOT the answer. Waht is Malta's agenda? Weisser might be a good choice, but it was a bad political move putting his name on signs with the other two. Weisser will at least listen to reason.....I think. He just needs to realize Main st will never be the way it once was, and the Police department is not going to keep the scum away from his store front. Maybe the sixteen firemen sleeping in lazy boys all day could do something productive for the village.......wishful thinking I guess.
