How is EDGE money spent? How can I find out who is getting our tax dollars?

Why don't they post this information on their website?

EDGE pisses our money away and based upon the way it is set up, no one can get a straight answer on how our money is spent. I can tell you one thing though, Steve Dimeo is the worst government official in the industry. He is sloppy and not very personable, but because most of our elected officials are uneducated and stupid, they think that he is a Rhodes Scholar.

what is the total amount of tax dollars given to edge since its inception?????????? this should be the county exc and mayors jobs, if we were seeing hard core results through the years that would be one thing but almost does not count and publis safety comm should be the job of the police chief, if they cant work the necessary hours to get the job done than dont run for office!!!!!!! pay freeze for all politicians for 5 years , why do we have to be as dyfunctinal as albany? solutions are simple make cuts

All you need to do as a concerned citizen is call the office and request this information. Very positive organization for this area and you would be surprised if you are truly interested to learn what they actually do. However, I suspect that you are just another taxpayer that wishes to remain ignorant and pass judgement without any facts that are supported by the organization themselves and not supported by disgruntled topix posters.

The EDGE and its Griffiss sister agency have received tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of federal, state and local tax dollars. Yet, there has been no accounting and no cost/benefit analysis of its performance. If one totaled the new, private sector jobs assisted by EDGE, the number would be paltry. And, one never reads of the staff size,salries and benefits. The primary function of EDGE has been to move existing businesses from other parts of the area into Griffiss; all with some form of governemnt subsidy.

I Just tried calling for the information and was told they make it available through agencies they work with. Maybe the OD will do the people's work and get this info. If anyone has Dan Miner's number contact him. He seems to be the only real journalist over there.
