Maybe where you come from people use their heads instead of other parts of their bodies to vote. We do not have recall powers in nys. We try to teach our kids, however it the adults around here that have their heads up their ass.

I think alot of people who put him in office have regretted that and as far as doing anything, there is nothing you can do. Now from what I understand he made alot of promises to people during the election and has gone back on them. Well what politician hasn't. They say whatever they have to in order to get elected and if people felt Fusco was different them shame on them.

As far as making him mayor. Well that is a good question. Did he get elected on qualifications. I doubt it. He clearly is not qualified for that position but that is my opinion. Did he get elected because Brown had alot of disgruntled citizens. I would say that is it. They really didn't want Fusco but then they wanted Brown out more.

And as far as making a difference as a citizen. You have limited options. You can run for office but unless you have a majority on board then your one vote is not going to make any difference when the rest of the Administration is performing poorly.

Can you replace them? Sure with who? Who can you trust. Look eople trusted in Fusco and apparently they got burned. It goes back to saying whatever it takes to get there.

And the worst of the entire thing is that people are to lazy to stand up. Can you blame it on Topix? Part of it yeah. Unfortunately people have come to believe that if they post about it whether Topix, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs or other means regardless of doing it anonymously or not they have done their part. They have either become lazy, disconnected, or are part of the Y Generation. And all that generation wants to know is Y should I, or Y should I care.

The only ones that bitchand moan about "What a shitty job your mayor is doing" are the idiots that didn't vote to begin with. If any of you can do better, come election time, why don't you run for mayor? Sounds like a plan, right? Let's see how much better you can run that shithole you call "Rome".. Good Luck....

You mean because the reality is that trash out number intelligent people in Rome? Only won by a small number largely due to his shenanigans and the fact that voters assumed that scum couldn't be elected and didn't turn out to vote against IT. A one term mayor and pray he hasn't filled city hall with all of his trashy friends.

Go and get some cheese to go with you whine ! The incumbant got beat by a minor candidate, must be he wasn't all that. Maybe it was his abrasive attitude or some of the low brow staff he sorrounded himself with or BOTH.

No, it was the people the gravedigger wheeled into the polls that couldn't read or write that won the Election.
Let's face it Fusco had no job other than digging a grave in between coffee shop sessions.
It's ok- even the scummers that own property will see double digit tax increases, sewer and water increases and can be happy they elected a snail to manage their tax money.
