No chip plant, yet or ever. I could call and confirm.... TSM, AMD, INTL, there is zero demand. Furthermore a flood zone and an area of future arterial construction is a no go. Dust and chips make bad chips. It was never going to happen ever since the idea was hatched.

Thanks to edge for bringing back teapot dome. Stop it. Give the taxpayer back all the funds this impossible boondoggle has extorted from them. It was the public support for private real estate. Very politic!

This plant is Never going to happen. Anyone from edge who pushes it should be under oath or council.

You can blame joe Bruno for sticking in our SAA with no lube. I believe the AMD fab was on its way until joe and friends found some extra $$$ to get it to the capital district. Pols will say those tech jobs are good for all of NYS but that Fab would have been a home run for the mohawk valley. For every job created at a chip fab, you can count on an additional 3-4 jobs elsewhere.

That is BS. Would you locate your chip plant next to poverty stricken Utica Rome or next to the upscale Saratoga Springs and Lake George/Adirondacks? Who the heck would want to live here? We were told that we came in second place which was done by the state just to keep EDGE in the game of lies, deceit and contracts to friends. A company can't even build on the land we have because it is not approved due to wetlands. Where is the new high tech buildings at SUNY IT that was promised over and over. A'int happening. It is all in Albany. Get real people.

You mean the government will hire 3-4 more government workers to live off the taxation of that new tech job. AMD was warned by people writing from Utica who knew people who are former utica residents at AMD in Austin. Around 2007 their #3 plant footprint engineer sent to Marcy to see the site was ticketed and searched by a Marcy Trooper who insisted he was trespassing or "acting suspicious" while viewing the site and it's quite a story how he had to fight it from Texas and was told to just pay the fines. Mova was off the table some weeks before Bruno tried to get them into the Forest and even that is in jeopardy now. What has anyone heard from that empty promise? These companies don't want to be taxed to death and the state incentives weren't good enough to offset the problems with unskilled population and the way NY operates in business repellant mode.
Also, the new larger format wafers and ides for 15h have already been adopted in Asia and Malasia leaving NY high and dry again. AMD is using GFoundries at Fab30 in Dresden anyway for their processor production and all their other stuff was licensed off to Malasia and asia. So I doubt they'll ever look at NY the same again after that debacle. Ever. But hey they sure have SUNY IT at least lmao! IBM has no intent to run production in NY either for many of the same concerns with their new 32 and 22 nm 300mill wafers. NOT gonna happen but please keep trying it makes some of us money!

DiMeo and his buddies will con the county into spending a few more millions of dollars for this fiasco.

Got a better chance of Tubby LaBella loosing 20 lbs. than ever seeing a chip plant here. What a waste of money by the Edge, but what do they care. It's not theirs.

That was a pretty lame attempt to shift blame. You may recall that Mr. friends and family himself, Arcuri, was our US Rep when Fat azz destito had her chubby mitts all over this debacle. In defense to Arcuri, who doesnt deserve any defense, this area was given a long, hard, un-lubed shaft by its state representatives. You cant even blame Bruno, he helped his own district. Our local reps have never been able to do the same. Its really no secret that this area has been powerless in Albany for decades. The sad truth is that no one has been able to rise from local politics and sell our area in the capitol. Ineffective representation is worse than none. MVEdge is a sham. Entirely deserving of a separate topic.

Ummm yeah actually blame the Democrats in charge of the county and the largely Dem supported EDGE idiot. Hanna did as he said and tried to persuade the ACoE to budge but they have rules laws and criteria. Again with the blame Hanna so your retard Lamb Democrat can come in and do what? The usual Dem game of helping themselves like all these people here? Get off it. Hanna tried he has no sway over the army Corps Congressman or not. If anything blame the rest of the idiots that keep supporting this moneypit public ruse. Oh yeah, suspiciously Democrat supported group at that!
Thanks Oneida County Dems!
Look you're going to have to step up your game and stop trying to blame Hanna for everything moron. Your attempts are laughably obvious so pack it in Gracie.
You were doing better with "Hanna's a 'rich guy' and not like me so BOOO Hanna he 'must' be out of touch with us have nots that won't work for themselves!"

The main problem is this area keeps putting in the same tired pols over and over. Destito did nothing but secure a better job for herself. Griffo just wants to keep getting re-elected and Dimeo will always keep the books sealed with anything to do with EDGE. He states the books are not open to any review by anyone. Our pols have never had any juice with Albany.
