I thought the new Mayor and Trustees were going to clean up Main Street? It looks worse than ever. Can you count how many shopping carts are infested all over the street. Who has to die before the Glory Days building gets torn down? The Mayor cant say he is new to the job he was on the board previous to this. It sad to see him waddle up and down Main Street and do nothing. Was Howdy Doody that bad? I'm starting to believe Pizza the Hut as mayor is even worse.

He's only been in office since July7th.. Do you honestly think that mess can be cleared up in 2 months. You people have no idea the mess he was left and what It takes to " clean up"main st. and the rest of this village. Instead of posting ridiculuous comments on topix, maybe you could use your energy to assist mayor rather than speak your ignorance..

He's been part of the Village board for 2 years. I wonder how many years he'll blame the previous administration for his inability to do the job. It will also be interesting to see how fast he works with his county political overlords to get the jail built.

He could eat Main St. That would be an improvement and satisfy what has to be one hell of an appetite.

From the article:
"When he was going door-to-door meeting with residents during his campaign, he said,“most people didn't care where the jail was located. They just wanted it done.”"
Oh really, Mr. Mayor. If this is true, then why are you on record during an interview on WUTQ just days before the election saying Village residents didn't want a jail in the Village? http://wutqfm.com/interviews/102915

Its time that Herkimer accepted the fact that Route 5 is now the new main street and rather than worry about what was or used to be (since the reputation has been so disparaged and irreparably damaged). Give it up - main street concept needs to change and accept that its now an capillary to the main artery... start thinking a little BIGGER Herkimer and maybe, just maybe, you will permit yourselves to evolve!

In the same article Robert Schrader said he spent 2,500 hours campaigning....haha.....doesn' t anyone question this? That means he spent 48 hours per week for an entire year campaigning. Is this guy for real???

Thank Helen Rose for bringing all this to light. The village board is run by Mr. Bono. All the board members are puppets.

Went door to door campaigning? None of them ever came to my door. Must've been knocking on their own doors.

What is wrong with you. Get out there and do something to help. Start by getting off your fat asses and attend a village board meeting. Funny, I didn't see any of you jokers there last Tuesday night. Join a committee. Call the Mayor or a Trustee and ask them what you can do to help. This mess did not happen overnight and it won't clean up in just a matter of a few weeks. Already the flooding problem has been almost completely resolved. Follow the Village of Herkimer on Facebook (then you would know what was up with the Glory Days building) and lend your support and keep your big fat mouths closed until you've either done the job yourselves or volunteered to help. SMDH at your ignorance.

It's Friday 8:50pm. Take a drive to Main Street and look at the beauties hanging around in front of the Affordable Mattress building with their lawn chairs, coolers, and folding tables. Go take a drive and look. How is this allowed. It's disgusting and looks terrible for the whole village.

You are right. It does look terrible and most find it disgusting. Including me. The old Board's position was that this was the front yard of these residents. Sick but true. But that still doesn't give anyone the right to bash what the current board, business owners or Herkimer NOW are trying to do with Main Street. Like I said, volunteer and see what you can do to help instead of sitting back and hiding behind your computer screen and typing daggers.

The whole village looks terrible, period. The only nice section is by the old hospital and even that area is dated. Main Street is embarrassing and getting off my ass and going to board meetings isn't going to make the trash that lives there get a job instead of standing around while they should be working, or pushing their mix race babies up and down the sidewalk. One trip down Main Street and you wonder who is worse, blacks or white trash? I could volunteer until I'm blue in the face. It isn't going to get our trash off welfare and into the workforce.

I'm sorry but I have to give our new Mayor some credit here! Flooding problems have drastically decreased and he is getting rid of the unfortunate mess of the old Glory Days building. Yes everything is happening slowly but at least it's happening! Tell me the last time our former Mayor was even seen on Main Street??? Or at least seen without some form of publicity anyway. Guess what Tony is on Main Street almost everyday! To be heard you must first be seen, he is doing things right! Face it people he loves this Village and is at least trying so give him some credit! If you don't like it run yourself! Now there's an idea!

here now the news, after gorging on lunch, the new mayor will walk past Glory Days, expel a tremendous fart, and the problem will be taken care of "and that's the way it is…"

"Tracker" in cold brook is probably Malta's son. Of course he's going to say how great the board is doing. Herkimer is doomed
