Tim Julian said this morning on the radio that he left Roefaro with a 10 million dollar surplus. After Roefaro quits and leaves offiec 10 million dollar surplus gone, rainy day funds gone, water board fund gone, all bank accounts empty, plus a 7 million dollar deficit over budget. How did that family and friends masterplan work for taxpayers that now will have to pay it off for him?

What did you expect? Roefaro saw the money and spent it all on his Friends and Family Plan.

That was on top of 60+ million dollar budgets every year. Imagine blowing 17 million dollars that wasn't yours and getting zero return on your money. Just spending money to spend money and giving all away to your family and friends without having to pay back a dime. Then say ah ok time to get out of here and hang back at the funeral palor because there is nothing left for me to spend. Plus don't have to pay any taxes because you live with mommy anyways. Talk about the hand that kept giving and seeing it coming everyday and unable to do anything about it as it's covered up by the city comtrollers office E&A, and councilors. WOW!!!

Seem like Dave Roefaro was living a double life. One of a big shot wildly spending money and having affairs behind his wifes back and that of a tight wad at home and a family man. Now that's a doulbe life I would like myselfbut then again I wouldn't want to be a slick polition slime bal.

The difference between Palmieri and Roefaro are tax increases. Imagine if we raised taxes 18% four years ago to pay for Roefaro's spending. Palmieri proposes tax raises and a few token cuts to appease those that believe what they're told.

I'll pay back all non-essential spending of taxpayers money. That wil only be between 10 or 15 million dollars. I wasn't keeping track.

I agree Julian is a liar.He started spending the water board funds in the amount of 12 million plus.He no longer paid for the Aud and the zoo.He received extra state aid.He caused the problems and they were continued under Roefaro.

Now, have you found the lowest common denominator? For decades the city has been run by corrupt local do nothings. They have lined their own pockets at the expense of the taxpayer. Do you think that the token cuts proposed by the current court jester will spare you a double digit tax increase? The cuts in public safety are merely an attempt to say "I did all I could do to minimize the tax increase". Wait and see. To effectively save, cuts of 20% in staffing would have to be implemented in both public safety departments, and removal of the ancillary projects that cost the taxpayer money, ie. ambulance service and fire academy.

I always said when I was King that I would rather being standing next to one than be one, especially after there is no more money and you can't take no more from the people.

Utica has almost a million dollar surplus this year! They said it and everything so it must be true.
