Dave Roefaro has lied again. During his campaign he claimed that he would not tolerate any missed payments by Hotel Utica. Now our great mayor has decided it will take him 90 days to make a decision about what to do. This comes after he promised a decision on Police residency in 6 months. Dave haven't you scheduled any comittee meetings to make your decisions for you or should you have taken Angelo instead of Tax Dead Beat Bob Sullivan to the meeting.

Dave I'm having trouble paying my bills, feeding my family and staying employed as my employer cuts back - can I skip some tax payments.

Dave you are a loser and a Lier. Stop the lies and make the deeadbeats pay. Aren't we in this together as your Parkway Sign scrolled for a week.

Not just an endorsement, but a personal, heartfelt endorsement.

During his victory speech on election night Arcuri proudly pointed out that Roefaro was one of his "goombas". His words, not mine.

I guess we can thank Arcuri for helping to turn Utica into "The Renaissance City".

From the mouth of the Mayor himself -"Hotel Utica's owners have consistently failed to meet loan repayment terms since 2001, and have fallen behind on their taxes the past two years. How should Utica address this situation?
The Hotel Utica situation is a bi-product of both the Hanna and Julian administration that lacked both the commitment to tackle real business issues and the integrity to admit when they made some serious mistakes.

We must give the hotel the opportunity to make good on their debt. However, inevitably if the hotel can't meet their business commitments, foreclosure is the only option. We can't hold just a few businesses to policy and we can not allow tax payers money to finance private interests." (Utica Observer Dispatch October 31, 2007)

F**K that spineless grease-ball Arcuri! He's part of the problem.

He's is a domestic enemy of the constitution and therefore a terrorist. He should be dealt with accordingly.

Mr. Arcuri, quoted in the August 6, 2007 Observer-Dispatch:

He spoke on the same day that the region's congressman said that Carucci and hotel co-owner Charles N. Gaetano must meet their obligations to taxpayers.

Those obligations include repaying the $5 million U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development loan that helped the historic hotel reopen more than six years ago, U.S. Rep. Michael Arcuri, D-Utica, said.

"It was never meant to be a gift," Arcuri said of the hotel loan. "It is inexcusable for them not to be paying any of the money they owe us."

"Inexcusable". Unless Mr. Arcuri's good friend Dave Roefaro approves it. Then it's okay.

Roefaro has decided that the interests of a family friend are more important than the interests of the city. He should be ashamed of himself.

======FAMILY, Dicky. Family. Says it all. If you or any of the other blogging clowns have a problem with it, call Davy himself. But, nobody's got the balls.

Dave will solve our problems with the help of Sullivan. BTW Angelo my bench needs paint and plant grass by the sidn on the parkway so it is all grown by the time of the boilermaker. I love both you and Dave.

Ken you have done well with the clowns in office - you fooled Hanna, Hung on with Julian and now you have weaseled in with Roefaro.

While we are on the subject of paying the bills - Tom Clarke has managed to maintain his building without much fanfare Is he a smarter businessman. His building was a successful Urban Renewal project instituted under Hanna and when it came time to give credit ole Tom just sold Ed Hanna out. It must be that Gaetano and Carrucci know that Hotel Utica is not viable and are just scamming to keep the taxpayers paying.

Hopefully Mr. Roefaro's "90-Day Plan" will include an actual accounting of the Hotel's finances instead of more handwaving and fluff.

No audit. No public accounting. No solutions. No end in sight.

Heckuva job, Mr. Roefaro. Heckuva job.

Excellent article and opinion on Mayor Roeflippo's flip-flop here:
I wonder what Mr. Arcuri's opinion or level of endorsement for Dave Roefaro is nowadays?
His opinion? Arcuri's head is stuck so far up Hillary Clinton's ass if she makes a right turn his neck will snap! A sad excuse for not only catholics, but italians as well!
