Glad I moved to NH!

Taxes are a deal for what we get. Safe streets. A right sized and responsive police dept. A school system that is top notch with most kids going to college. A volunteer but high quality professional level fire dept that is second to none. Highway dept that keeps the roads maintained as they should. When you call someone in govt they actually get back to you. You don't have to know guido or so and so's brother to get anything accomplished. And the best part is our homes are actually worth something because of all the above. The quality of life is better. Very glad we bailed out of the city. Good luck to those of you left- you will need it.

Since they exhausted the current civil service list, your vitriol is not just a matter of you not getting hired, you could not even pass the test.

Thank god for the suburbs. At least those of us that absolutely have to remain in this godforsaken area at least have a choice other than that ghetto called Utica.

Glad every day we moved. The Utica politicans can spin their jets all they want about increased census counts and roundabouts. It doesn't change what has happened over the last 40 years or so in this area and the northeast in general. People are leaving for greener pastures. There is nothing you can do about it other than reinvent this area for what it is. These visions of Utica and New York in general having some grand comeback is a farce. But we keep elected the same tired politicians only out for the gravy trian; for themselves and others. Like civil servants etc etc.
