DiNapoli states that a cities reserves is it's key to a healthy city and the qustion remains to why Roefaro would intentionally drain all of it's reserves and run up an 8 million dollar debt in light of this information which has us facing in the wrong direction and tax increase for years to come to turn us around.

We have to move past Roefaro now. He has to live with himself and what he did to taxpayers and a city that once had ten million dollars in reserves before he became mayor and a good bond rating. I'm sure karma will catch up with him evn though we went from a health city to being very sick. We voted him in and now we must suffer the consequences.
worse mayor ever

He works for Schumer. I believe Schumer told him to get the hell out of Utica and join him and Angelo on the road because Utica had no money left and a waste of time.

dat rofaero got him a lot of italian friends that needed nice construction contracts and i bets he runs the greased corruption money right through his funeral home. Just like da rest of these bums run the heroin proceeds thru the pizza joints. But the real kicker is the bankers who launder all the drug money for the big boys-gamble in the derivatives markets and when they eff it up expect us to pay the tab. Now that bees a big set of steel muchachas. Only thing i do nts understands is why you dumb whiteys don't rise up and take it all back. They got you scared so only grease ball mobsters are left to count out da corruption money. Where are you white knights? We need you more than evers-even da brothers prefer the klan to italians.

The 10 million funded public safety for four years of his administration. Roefaro used it to kick the can down the road. That can cost 10 million and we now have nothing to show for it but a bad bond rating and empty city bank accounts. He didn't only totally squandered every penny and quit but ran up an 8 millin dollar debt on top of that which went towards the family and friends plans. His agenda murdered taxpayer and there children of the future as we still pay for his un-negotieated public safety contracts till 2015 which Palmieri considers untouchable.

What a silly question, did Casey Anthony intentionally kill her baby, lie, cost taxpayers millions of dollars and get away with it. Of course. So, that make Roefaro and her with something in common except he killed a city and taxpayers and she killed a baby and taxpayer but they both got away with it.
Hmmmm
