How do you get away with stealing millions of dollars from taxpayers? Become a democrat, move to Utica, and become Mayor, that's how. It's part of the DNA in Utica for the torch to be handed down from Mayor to Mayor to use taxpayers money as their personal piggy banks and use corruption which is backed by lawyers and judges to get away with millions in misused taxpayers money. Examples are Julian, Roefaro, and now Palmieri. ALL YOU DO AS MAYOR IS SAY I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING THAT GOES ON IN MY ADMINISTRATION, REMAIN SILENT, AND HIRE A LAWYER, WHO IS CONNECTED TO A JUDGE, WHO KNOWS A SENATOR, BINGO.

I got pleanty of ideas how. But first let's start with the OD's editorial. If they put 'Mayor Palmieri' in charge of oversight, it would be like the blind leading the blind. His mental limitations were half of the reason Fatata and Sullivan used him as their political patsy. His slowness later allowed partimers to get healthcare. When you elect dummies, taxpayers get fleeced. Repeatedly. How many unfunded positions in the budget now can't be excluded from healthcare? Answer that OD. they're all friends and family members! And the OD wants to put the mayor in charge of oversight. Wow.

Note to OD, empower the comptroller, and this shit comes to end immediately. That might not be politically convenient to the paper, but I don't care. Comptrollers are elected to check the power of the mayor and fleece-driven political patronage spending. Cerminaro knows what's going on, why dont you ask him about the thieving democratic hoards in city hall.

I know you're not going to like his opinion, but the OD is a disgrace anyway. No copy editor, and apparently the paper is in the tank for the long term. Still haven't mentioned that Utica is permanently without operating funds. Does that make the OD real estate unsellable? Yup.

You know how many people could have used a tax decrease or at least 100 feet of road done in front of there homes. Instead we have to pay twice on what Roefaro misused while trying to be a big shot with taxpayers money.

Too bad the OD is too afraid to ruffle the feathers that their business is indebted to.
These comments were re-posted to the comment section of the OD website today. It seems as though someone involved ( read " the guilty partys" ) hit the abuse button which removed the comments until the site moderator was able to review them. Since the comments were not abuse they were allowed to be printed(on the webite). www.uticaod.com

The OD reserves the right to not only edit letters to the editor if the editorial staff feels the paper is being maligned in any way, it can make the decision not to publish entire letters for the same reason. This happened time and time again during this past election. Candidate supporters were essentially shut down. Thank you Donna Donovan and staff
Comments were challenged by city hall, which put them on hold until they could be reviewed. The OD is a professional example of journalism which should be commended for doing the right thing.
Freedom of the press is so important it is a right demanded in the Constitution. Thank you OD.www.uticaod.com

Now, that Roefaro himself mis-spent almost $700,000 in HUD Funds, will the FBI finally investigate him. Remember Gro-west and the lot of mis-spending happened on Roefaro's watch. He doesn't have Hage to watch his back this time with city tax dollars.

Wasn't the Gro-West fiasco to the tune of about $2 million?

That's because the OD is nothing more than the PR department for the city of Utica.

Case in point, palmier's downtown plan got zero objection from the OD. Since its announcement, the od's view thought it was just peachy. Well it's a gross use of grants, failing to realize that the taxpayer is the source of these funds too. Federal income tax revenues need to be stewarded just as closely as uticas own tax revenue. Since the paper is only figuring this out now, I think viscount's position about the paper being the mouthpiece for the p gang is apt.

Giving the p gang blocks of money is just a disaster. He wasted all that money on plans when the master plan was already passed as law, exists, and was ignored. The p gang has no limits in the liberties they take with other peoples' money. That should have been the story. This is why we have freedom of the press. Not to rubber stamp what is best for union laborers, dems, family members, liberals or whoever the fuc bob thought was going to get this federal 'grant money.'

Bobby, I'm giving your broke ass no quarter. I'm not even gonna give you fifty cents. You run it like a slum begging for grants. Tell ya what, if you can find matching funds for the 8 million federal that is private money, I'd like to hear about it. I'm sure ya got it laying around. Or tax your citizens for it. I'm sure your taxpayers can afford at least that much since you think Uticas worth a billion. No bank will lend to you. you were going to pay for this with parking meters. You schmuck.

Hey Bobby looks like the school district cut over 150 positions and phys Ed is being physd out. How do you feel about grabbing all those benefits over the years? When you look at the collapse of your city, Think about weed and seed, all those quality of life sweeps, all that excercise you were doing. think about your new car, and how you tricked the population in giving healthcare benefits to 'permanent' part timers. Why don't you go find those kids a grant. Seems like most of what you do, is for you, and if I read the budget correctly, your friends.

I'm watching the tubes get clogged because so much is being flushed at the same time. How many more years with you at the helm?
