This joker, thief, crook has got to go---vote this small time hood out of office. He is scamming you out of money in taxes you shouldn't be paying and everyone knows it. He hires only pals and overpays them for sitting around and shaking their head yes. Tony, the don, is a manipulative jackshit and needs to be tossed.

He hired him for the same reason he hires all of his entourage--he's stupid, can easily be led,
is an old friend from the old neighborhood and most important of all...he's italian.

DYK...Oneida Cty. has the highest sales tax of any other county outside the NYC boroughs. Could it be the reason why we're $2M more in revenue than last year? But no property tax relief.

It's a miracle this guy is still where he's at. Sad part is he believes he deserves a job higher up. He's buried the people of Oneida County and City of Utica with the nonsense he allows and promotes. In actuality all he does is represent the Welfare County of the World. BIG accomplishment!

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente has a ready-made list of how to spend an $8.4 million county surplus. But what Picente — and county lawmakers — should be doing is preparing legislation to lower the county sales tax in the wake of that surplus, the second in a row. Clearly, the county is collecting more money from taxpayers than it should.

The surplus is a result of government doing what it should be doing: spending less. There were also a few revenue windfalls, not the least of which was an increase in sales tax revenue, also the second in as many years.

It’s nice that the county has extra money to pay down some debt and otherwise save for a rainy day. But it’s doing so by over-taxing the people. The fair thing to do would be to pare back the 4.75 percent county sales tax rate — the highest in the state — to a level consistent with other counties and stop hitting the people upfront, banking the surplus.

Picente earlier said that the increase in sales tax revenue was a sign of an improving economy. Lowering the sales tax could add to that by encouraging more people to shop here instead of in a nearby county where the tax is lower, averaging 4 percent. While some might consider such savings minimal, it adds up over time, especially for people on tight budgets.

In the last 2 elections for CE, 2007 & 2011, both times Tony PISS-ente has said he will never lower or even consider lowering the county sales tax rate. What was his old song and dance every year at budget time? "These unfunded mandates that Albany puts on us prevents us from lowering the rate". Funny how PISS-ente didn't bring up that argument when he addressed the whole legislature 2 nites ago when questioned about the county surplus. Tallarino is right...$3.6M of that surplus should go for the add-on that King Tony made separate last fall for the MVCC funding.

I was told by Councilman Zecca that the Surplus was 8 MILLION - NOT 2 Million!!!!!

The sales tax revenue for 2011 was $90M. For 2012 it was reported that total sales tax revenue was $92M. The sales tax revenue is up $2M from one year to the next. The county surplus from the whole county budget for this year is $8.4M from reducing costs and sales tax revenue. I simply state that $3.6M of that surplus should be directed to MVCC instead of including it with each municipality's tax burden to the county which PISS-ente started doing this year. You should "know the facts".

There is no such thing as government money. It is the tax payer's money. If there is a surplus, it should be banked and taxes should go down next year. It isn't found money. It is from our pockets

He shipped that skank down to North Carolina to get that smishsmorshin. Now she's back home but not in his office.

This guy is the biggest scumbag in the area and it's a shame he's still running the county. He's just running it into the ground while lining his own pockets and his family and friends' too. He has not done one positive thing for the county since he's been in office. Nobody has seen change for the better yet he continues to get elected. We pay the highest taxes in the state to live in one of the most neglected cities in the entire country. How does he still have his job?

We're taking about a man that's afraid to even ride the elevators at work with the general public.
