Right! Name the park after a corrupt mayor who drove the city into the ground, hired relatives by the score, did nothing but whine continually if anyone dared suggest that maybe there was a problem. And now, he monopolizes the school board and still tries to hire relatives by the score and control everything in illegal executive sessions. He has sat on the board for years and the district is at its lowest point in all history with regards to the children's competency in reading, math, etc. The guy is a loser, contributed greatly to the ruin of this area and deserves to be forgotten and his azz booted out of public view. No one wants to remember this joker. He probably put the idea in those lame brain council members heads to do this. Booooh and hiss to the very idea.

Zecca and Vescera. Maybe the park should be named after them. The politics with these two nobodies is ridiculous. What has these two done for our area? All the noise they make with nothing complete.

Seriously!?!? This thing destroyed downtown and sits nearly empty today. It was the biggest mistake ever for downtown. I guess Zecca and Vescera think Lapolla can get them some votes this election year.

Don't forget it was Lapolla who let the city's public pools at Addison Miller and Buckley go to ruin to the point where they were almost lost. No maintenance, no care during his administration and then when public outrage finally reached deafening tones, he shortens the pools so they are nothing more than glorified wading pools with no boards. They were marvelous deep ended pools for years and now forever and all time they are shallow water kiddie pools. He was the worst Mayor this town ever had, and yes, he needs to be forgotten and out of sight.

Outrage should follow from this and shame on Zecca for pandering to this complete ego maniac...he treated waitresses bartenders and service employees like crap his whole life...his only fans are old ladies from East Utica...a business park named after a man with no business sense is typical Utica crap.

Probably none since he hired mostly friends and relatives.

Louie Lapolla took tens of thousands of dollars from Angela Elephant for reelection campaigns and then he would turn around and back stab her. Two faces, forked tongue Louie is one of the biggest snakes around. Watch the azzhole on the school channel sometime for a laugh--or a cry--clearly he knows nothing and wants to be center stage. He started out as a kindergarten teacher and he couldn't even handle that.

No hater here....you are probably Lou! Any council that votes for this stupid idea should not receive our votes in November. I WILL PERSONALLY REMIND EVERYONE WHAT COUNCIL MEMBERS VOTE YES!!!! Back in the 80's economic development had big money...wasn't too difficult to run a city at that point.

He gave some relative a job at Jones School years ago as a teacher's aide. Mary Ann Lapolla. A nuclear warhead could not make that fatazz move faster than a snail. She does nothing but eat for most of the day. The kids she is supposed to be helping learn nothing and very often regress when she is assigned to them. Keep your kid away from her. These are the kind of hires by Lapolla that have caused the district to bottom out. Any normal district would have gotten rid of her within a week.

Pathetic excuse for a mayor. And he was a cross-dresser too. Many who work in City Hall know.

There was a time during Lou's tenure as Mayor of Utica, where you had to grease Lpollas hand by giving him $1000 cash in a Lunch Bag to be appointed as a cop in the Utica Police Department!! And for 2k he would fix your Civil Service test score so you would pass and be appointed by him!! rumor has that he buried all of his cash in a treasure chest in his back yard?

He has no real power. He is an old windbag that likes to be on stage. And he has some real hair issues. To be afraid of that idiot is to be less than a man.
