What a cover story in the of rag sheet today.Or should I say cover your ass story.If there are so many mandates then why do we even need a county executive.All we need is a manager to sign checks.When did you ever see Pacenti and his band of merry legislators have a push on a united front on state officials to stop mandates.No its easier to blame mandates.And how do other counties across the state deal with mandates and keep taxes down.Why do we have so many libraries anyways.Village city school libraries.We should have just two one in Utica and Rome.In this age of the internet and e books libraries are not needed.Its the internet stupid.So stop with the coverup story cooper and get with what can be done and not with the smooth talk article to shield Pacenti.No excuses please for him.He should make some decisions not mandate excuses.

I couldn't have said it better. But when you water the gene pool down to nothing, you have morons who are either self serving and will protect the status quo, those reaping benefits and the uniformed. That's how easy it is to fool the people and not even have a college degree.

Your right .Even the delivery people are bad .I guess you get what you pay for for employees.They throw the paper in the bushes.This republic leaning rag sheet even Ed Hanna had their number.The paper tries to smooth talk the general public with its cunning articles like mandates but never critize or ask the hard questions of republican elected officials of what they will do about it.No united protest no push on griffo who is also a republin to get a mandate relief bill passed. A big snow bill they talk about.What snow.Winters have been the mildest for 5 years.If 911 was a big cost why did they go that direction and saddle the county with that in the first place.Wait until you see the coroner bill in future contracts.Pacenti seems to cut off his nose to spite Oneida county's face

Wen I read that article in the OD today about the mandate excuses for the county . I could not think that even my Joseph Goebbles could have done a better job explaining.

Why even have a county government if there are so many mandates . Really think about it Just have the state govern the 90 percent mandated budget and put the other so called 10 percent under the control of villages and towns to run and you will save a ton of money not having to pay pacenti and his assistant.They are even admitting that they have no control over 90 percent of the budget RIGHT. So why do we even need them there. Why don't they get a real job.

Did Donna Donanuts run out of stories for her rag sheet she had to call Piss-ente and cry the blues for him? How many times have we heard Piss-ente crying in his beer over state mandates? If I was making $105K/year and had a $8M surplus in reserves I wouldn't be singing the blues too loud.

heres another one the 911 system andit does have good benefits but the county wanted to get on the system so bad they didn't think about the mandate that now they have to pay for it. So heres how the question from the ace reporter liz should have been asked. Mr Pisanti now that the county has to fund the 911 system at a mandate and it doesent have to fund the police to send at a mandate will the day ever come when the full compliment of 911 operators will have to say to the caller you will have to wait for a car to send because we don't have enough police to send . No mandate on their compliment..This is an example of how our county government has and probably will forever operate. Keep up the good cover you all OD ace reporters.Keep the public happy.

We have a heart for pisante and his mandates but other counties also have them .their sales taxes are lower,property taxes are lower, they still function but when has HE ever tried to get a united front going by bringing all officials from his party and others to gain a large voice against some mandates. Now that would be leadership. WHAT ....Leadership ... You don't need that around here to win.. Just have the OD and your halfway there.They at the OD will speak for you.
