Throw a dart at the tax roll and stick that poor son of biitch with the job. The best mayor would really be no mayor just pretend to have one hence less problems.

I love the Fort in downtown Rome! It is our National treasure. I am glad it still stands proudly. We all need to support the Fort and develop the area to further advance its status!

It was a waste of money and a stupid idea. It hasn't done anything for the city and it never will. It doesn't "still stand proudly" anyway, it's a replica. As for that "flag first flown in battle" nonsense, I believe two other sites claim the same thing. They didn't rebuild it in 1781 when it burned to the ground, so why did we waste our time?

That Fort has made me, and all the other chain stores in rome more money than you will ever know. I only wish Clinton would bulldoze their downtown. Shops, park, and fountain included, and build a fort their. Then I could ship even more money out of these towns, and this state. With only a fraction of the money returning. In the form of min. wage jobs. Then the gov't can give my workers the balance of what it takes to cloth, feed, and shelter ones self. This is called corporate welfare, but you wouldn't know that. The mainstream media would have you believe corporate welfare is tax breaks for millionaires. Well that's just a sliver of it. Salt in the wound if you will. Have a nice day My 6 family members who currently own my company will be spending the day trying to figure out how to spend an amount of money that equals the total amount owned by the bottom 30 percent of America.

Rome basically bulldozed itself into the shit situation it's in during the 70's. Why not tear down everything of any real historical value in the heart of downtown to build something of very little historical value, like the Fort. Then let's build an enclosed bridge that will be torn down in roughly thirty years. Then we could put up some parking garages for people to park in while they're visiting all the lovely stores we've torn down. If that ain't a recipe for success, I don't know what is!

O.k. Things didn't work out as planned like the merchants took the money and rebuilt elsewhere or retired. We all know it didn't work out , how about coming up for a recipe for success instead of living in the past.

There is none. This city will swirl the toilet and eventually go down the hole.

Nobody should give Mr. Fusco a second chance. This is why I did not vote for him at first place.

I was telling someone the other day that I noticed how often Brown was in Daily Sentinel when Fusco is almost never in there.

Fusco needs to go!

God only knows what in the heck they were thinking when they raped & mutilated Rome back in the 70's. Okay...the fed. govt. paid for the fort but its never lived up to its full potential. And remember the great downtown we used have with the stores back then? Nelson's, Goldberg's, Jupiter, Rosens Men wear, Mohegan Market. What a colossal waste...and the milennials don't even know about the history of the Fort or the American Revolution. They probably think it was something from WWII.
