Wasn't it gratifying to see Tony Pissente on WKTV this week, patting himself on the back for the county's 2nd consecutive budget surplus? How hard would it be to NOT have a surplus when Oneida County has the highest sales tax rate of all upstate NY. Only the NYC area's sales tax is higher. And we'll never see any reduction...no matter how small, in our county property taxes. And since the casino money will add some to the coffers, Oneida county will be filthy rich with money. An embarrassment of riches for King tony.

That was a disgusting press conference.

It's amazing how our County Executive brags every year about his careful fiscal management when in reality, we are simply being over-taxed so he and the legislature can pad the fund balance and tuck money away in other restricted funds.

Stop voting for Democrats and Republicans folks!

The property tax should be lowered and increase sales tax. Rich/poor, homeowner/renter, job/jobless we all contribute when buying goods.

In concept sounds great. In reality it wouldn't work. You can only increase sales tax so much before you would drive people out of oneida county to purchase goods and services.

Like you have an overflow people dying to move in to Oneida Cty. everyday. The sales tax does spread the pain around since alot of county residents are not property owners.

Like the other guy said all you're doing it encouraging people to not spend their money in oneida county by doing this. Again good idea on paper but would never ever work.
