Mr. Mayor, you have failed our community, crime running rampart, streets falling, three floods within 6 months and a nearly bankrupt village, what's your next accomplishment?

It's about time the police can stop hiding on Marginal Road every night and start patrolling the streets. Why do we need officers sitting in the station playing on Facebook all day and not protecting our community? Please explain the failures of the Police Chief you appointed?

How come we can't drive on any village street without avoiding pot holes and damage to our cars? Please explain the floods and ice jams why was Bellinger Creek left neglected since Jimmy Franco retired? Please explain the current DPW Superintendent failures and neglect of his position?

Why is there no codes enforcement there are so many properties in this village that are in violation and completely unsafe? Please explain the two codes officers who have failed miserably you appointed?

Why are do you insist wasting our money on a useless law suit against the county? Why isn't the village attorney handling the suit? Is he not capable, you had to go somewhere else? Again poor leadership at our expense.

Every department head in the village should be held accountable for their negligence and terminated. Police, Fire, DPW, Codes and yourself. You should hang your head in shame because it all falls on you. We the tax paying residents deserve better, what us the excuse for all your years of bad appointments and failure. If your day of judgements doesn't come now it will upon most high. Repent to the people and our Dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ your failures have destroyed the community.

You knew damn well when I wore blue jeans to my swearing in ceremony that you weren't getting Raymond Kelly as your police chief. I will have you know that I did not tip off Rob Risi about his indictment. Not my fault that he was able to quit in time to get his pension for the rest of his life. It's only 30 grand a year until he croaks. Not like that would fill many potholes anyway.

I agree with Pissed Citizen.
That's right - Mr. Mayor - why did you make DEC make the village stop working Bellinger Brook? why did you make it rain? why did you make the prices of equipment/repairs/gas go up? why do you pay civil servants when they should just volunteer their services? why did you make it so cold then warm? why do you allow crime to occur and crazy people live around us? why do you let fires start? why don't you surround us with a nice peaceful, weather-free, problem-free bubble.......... Any complainer, shoud run for mayor.

You have been warned for years this going to happen you did nothing. We complained to you about the trees and garbage in creek you did NOTHING. Our homes were ruined from your negligence don't pass the buck. Take some accountability don't worry when we get done suing the village for your negligence they may get the message and fire you.

A backhoe could have broke up the ice before it jammed under the bridge.

A backhoe could have pulled trees out of the creek before they jammed under the bridge.

Potholes can be filled with blacktop.

But these cant happen if you don't go to work (rite Pete).

Wake up board and Mr. Mayor. Pete makes you look BAD

So why has our mayor been reelected multiple times? What has taken the populace so long to realize these issues and what happens the next election? And what about the other Board members who just remain clueless and are such a disgrace?

It is a joke what people hired civil servants get away with in this town. Many towns, but this one in particular.

Some say that the state will come in eventually and shut it all down, and then take over finances and governance. It is in the works now according to some who say they know it all. Not sure how that all works and won't pretend to know. But these ridiculous people will still have the last laugh. If that happens they will lose their jobs, file for unemployment, and receive benefits off of taxpayers anyway. A flawed system. Only way around it is to catch some of these people in the acts of gross misconduct that we know they commit, like drinking on the job. If you see it, and we know some have, report it. I know I will. Citizens are being taken for a ride very day by some (not all) of these idiots.

Half the people complaining here aren't even registered voters. Start there.

This registered voter is tired of the political nonsense. Why do we have the same mayor over and over again because the village is such a mess nobody wants it. The damage done since 1999 is unrepairable. The appointments made were all failures. Who suffers the people who pay for it. As stated earlier every department head should be accountable for their actions. Why does a superintendent of public works who is suppose to be available 24/7 work part time at the Tractor Supply Store where was he when it comes to monitoring Bellinger Creek selling tractor parts? Where's the codes enforcement when there are so many properties that deemed unsafe? Why does a Police Cheif have to run two police departments when the in Herkimer has become ineffective. Every time something happens in this village the state police are called in? A fire department that only worries about union contracts and their side jobs and businesses. Hopefully the state takes the village over and dismantles this mess.

The current administration is extremely ineffective. They spin their wheels and chase their tails and blather on and on ad nauseam and nothing ever gets done. It's really shocking how poorly run the village is, when you are familiar with the issues.
keep letting it happen

Best part is the police chief spends a couple of hours a day in Mohawk when he should be in Herkimer. He will tell you he makes up the time when in fact he is double dipping. Anybody else would be fired for working two jobs at the same time. He gets a hundred grand a year to do it. Needless to say he doesn't go home at 7 every night.

I'm sorry - but who would take a position where you are not allowed to do anything else and be available 24/7? That can't be right. I've never even seen a posting like that. I don't even think it would be legal. How could anyone go anywhere or do anything with something like that plastered on them? And I've never even heard of a clause where you couldn't work part time somewhere else. Expectations are perhaps way way too high. At any rate, this is America - if you don't like what's happening - run for office. I try not to complain too much because I don't. I haven't been in those shoes, I imagine it's not easy.

Let's face it. We need to get Ainsworth,Nichols and Mrakey out of there if we are ever going to settle this jail thing. Let's just build it in the P&C. The county has promised to back off and help us. Give them what they want, we can't afford to let this keep going on. Schrader claims he's got the power to make the county back off. What a joke that big guy is. The vote this summer for the village will get this behind us so we can concentrate on the next phase of the county screwing with the village. Sorry Mr. Schrader but you can't stop it. The village needs to help itself by getting new people on the board and realizing we don't have the money or the brains to fight bono and wallace.

No jail it's a waste of money to build a play pen for the bums of the valley.
