And do tell us what to do about the SPEND and TAX policies of reject Mayors who spend like drunken sailors as Roefaro did, depleted all it's reserves funds, and tack on to city debt what we can't pay for. The country is a bowl of cherries and Utica is where the pits go. Utica has been cooked and well done for years and the politicians are still picking at the bones. Just stay use to be broke and having less and less to spend every year.

They are like crack addict. They wont recognize what they are and that there is a problem so they forever attack the people who notice how screwed up it is there. It will never change it is too ingrained into the local mindset. Along with meth crack and spending.

I don't come on this site much. When I do it's to feel good about leaving. I moved to a bigger house with 1/2 the taxes. Winter is a month long and the crime rate is almost non existent. There are jobs, nice roads, beaches, lakes and mountains. Google Cary, NC for yourself. Unless I have a specific reason, I see no need to return to Utica for more than a day or 2. Those are the facts.
This is what the 10's of thousands of people who already say to.

That doesn't solve anything. Admit it, Utica is bad because everyone (on topix) WANTS IT TO BE BAD!

Safe to say you don't earn any money because of your brains with ridiculous logic like that.

Hey, I've got a three car garage. And I can afford to take trips to a sugar white beach of my choice whenever I want. Life is worth living in New Hartford. While Utica burns, we fiddle.

No it's bad because it's bad, so bad we need to fill it up with third world refugees who are use to living in squalor. We have the, highest sales tax in the country, high property taxes, goat paths for roads, high school taxes, few services except for refugee and welfare services, the highest number of sexual predators, high crime, high sewer and water rates, the highest paid police and firemen in the country with unsustainable padded pension and health care cost, mismanagement of taxpayers and federal funds just to name a few things but other wise it's not to bad with easy access to all the drugs and alcohol you want with one of the lowest mortality rate in the country.

natural disasters: Hurricanes: 5, Tornadoes: 3, Storms: 3, Floods: 2, Ice Storms: 2,
I believe all of those natural disasters have occurred in the Mohawk Valley in the past three years. Oh... wait... except Cary doesn't have blizzards. Interesting.

Also, at least Cary has nice houses... They might be McMansions, but at least they're NEW. You look around the MV, and you'll see "optimistic" sellers asking $50k for a $12k house built in the 1800s. Then they wonder why they've been on the market for 3, 5, or even 10 years.
Roefaro screwed Utica up

Listen in 4 years your ex-mayor Roefaro sent you back to the dark ages. Utica's budget under his administration was 63 million dollars but he was spending on average between 70-75 million dollar while empting all your reserve accounts. This was all while using those funds to hide with the help of Michael Cerminaro actual tax increases of over 25% per year. Roefaro shenagins will actually be the end of Utica as we know it and is bankrupt. Nobody really know how much he has harmed the taxpayers as taxes will continue to skyrocket with no relief in sight except for your refugees and generational welfare clients.

Utica was doomed 10 years ago. It is the armpit of New York State, and the rest of the state knows it.

Well, at least Utica has some notoriety, even if it sucks. I think this list was made before we got the sign.
