So I did a little research (more than the Utica OD, apparently), and I found an interesting coincidence. Would you be surprised to find out that the Herkimer County Legislator who pushed for Joy Presta's firing is also the Chairman of the Herkimer County Committee on Ways and Means, which gave the YMCA $18,987 from 2010 through 2012?
Kind of an interesting coincidence, wouldn't you say?
His committee's payments to the Little Falls YMCA:

And he's the same person who pushed for the firing of Joy Presta:
"Herkimer County Administrator James Wallace and Legislator Patrick Russell said the decision was made on Nov. 15 due to lack of funding for the positions.
'For five years, we’ve been looking at the program,' Russell said.'I’ve been bringing it up every year.'"

Curiously, there is no record of this being brought up prior to this year. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Y's hatchet man in the Herkimer County Legislature...
HON. PATRICK E. RUSSELL, Chairman
Ways & Means Committee

Just saying.
Funny isn't it? the way folks will write "Just saying" to mean, "Somebody take this puke I spewed and run with it - PLEASE."

A way to gloss over the venom intentended by their words.

Doesn't the city have the Little Falls Times? Why are you calling out a paper that the city of Little Falls doesn't even recognize as their "official" paper?
