Utica is going Bankrupt That"s a good thing.
First all retirement payouts stop,
Health insurance stop"s for ALL CITY works and anyone who is retired.
Any agreement ( Union Contracts ) are voided.

A judge will over see any contracts.

any services could or will stop.

anything that is paid with city Tax money will stop.

i read that and laughed. After reading his remark, I have to admit, I like his thinking, just think what this city will look like with 20,000 IT's running around with no job? The day you have to watch out for, is the day before they go bankrupt, every IT's in the city will be hurting themselves.

I can see it. Thats what happens when you spend more money than ya got. Thats also what you get when you tax and regulate business and people too much... They leave. Tax and regulations does not create jobs all that does is force out jobs and people. Its not just utica thoe its all of ny. Gotta vote for new people... Thats what gets me people piss n moan but they keep voting for the same idiots. Gotta stop over spending and over taxing oh and stop over regulating.

definitely not easy being successful in utica, but is a true testament to the person you are if you can make it in utica. I like it here, but I understand I am basically alone in saying this. I know a lot of great people from Utica and always find stuff to do. I make great money, and so does my family. Just gotta know what professions to take up and you have to be the best at what you do. Otherwise yes, you'll fall fast here.
