Moody's downgrades Monroe County
Posted in the Rochester Forum
#1 Aug 14, 2013
Moody's Investment Services downgraded Monroe County's bond rating from A3 to BAA1 and revised the county financial outlook from stable to negative. Moody's says this rating is tied to the Monroe County's $454.6-million in outstanding, long-term debt. It says the negative outlook reflects the belief that the county's finances could get worse. Moody's says this is due in part to a few things. It says Monroe County is spending more than it's bringing in.

Cut entitlement programs, surplus county employees and tax breaks for new businesses that promise jobs, and don't deliver.
Maggie Crooks is a disaster.
What is her husband earning at the Monroe County Water Authority? Over $100,000? Well over.

I bet when pensions stop and employees are not paid a few folks will care.

Rochester (City of) was upgraded today. Good news for Mayor Richards campaign. Maggie should figure out what they're doing right.

Nobody cares what the hell "Moody's" has to say. "Moody's" is/are an/a bunch of idiot(s).

Not true. Moody's can cost a gov't more in interest rates with a bad rating. That ends up costing us more as taxpayers.

It will not effect those that do not pay taxes and get public assistance. That may be the reason there is a problem in the first place.
