In a nutshell: The political parasites we have ALWAYS had are all that's left on a once fat cow.
Look at the patent $h1t your DAs office is running at trails.
Look how the man who perfected that method and network is rewarded as Congressman.
Look at RoAnn Destito who rakes in over a million a year for connecting her husband to a fuoking casino with her influence. Little else but rubberstamp whatever $hlt Albany's spendthrift powerbrokers tell her to.
Look at the fraud Donna Donovan, Publisher of the Utica Observer Dispatch, who made her livelyhood pumping the "good news" your politicians have told you for years. She makes good coin scandalizing anything that doesn't hurt her Arcurious connection. Murders, molesters, intersperced with fluffypillow E! garbage.
Oh and she tried to forget to tell you when her DWI-challenged son Andrew almost killed a man, wrecked his car and ran from the police. Meanwhile, speak of hipocracy an almost exact case got what? TWO DAYS of her front page realty just 3-4 days prior? OOOPS!
Wanna talk about the Roefaro Employment Agency running City Hall at Arcuri's behest? The first thing they did when they got in there and locked and CCTV'd the place like a compound. The "Open Government" canary dropped dead in its cage on day one.
Let's discuss the Utica Department of Public Works, which for at least 20 years under You Know Who's leadership has functioned as the chute for The Uticafella's gutter-ball relatives.
Rufus Elefante? What a piece of $hlt.
How about New York State under Cuomo, Pataki, Spitzer, and let's not forget about Yancey Roy's infamous three men under a staircase? What about not passing a budget on time for OVER TWENTY YEARS!
Joe Bruno? He's almost as high on my list of thieving scumbags as Elefante.
These are the people that let you down.
And guess what?
Most of them are still in office, cashhing your checks.
In short, it's people getting over on the people who pay the bills.
Joe Bruno???? Isn't he the one who stole the chip plant from us and steered it to Albany? How about the DEC getting involved in our site? Doesn't that reek of politics? Do you think our site might be a little better than Albany's so they come up with some BS to C**KBLOCK us. Granted, it will be a years before AMD builds down there but at least it will be built there someday.In exchange we get some BS bone and the employees are fighting it tooth and nail and it won't be relocated here anyway. That is why there are no good paying jobs here my friend!

I am in this boat. 28, underpaid, and pissed off. I COULD go back to get my Masters, but what is the point? I educate myself, which is great, but the $$$$$ for tuition? I won't earn that 30,000 back for decades. I am in deferment on all of my undergrad loans because the powers that be in Utica decided that you have to know-someone-who-knows-someone -who-knows-someone and THAT IS HOW YOU GET JOBS! Whats worse is, I see my boss's clients come in here, some who are college educated and without phone lines and working two/three jobs per week, and others who knew-someone-who, and they have no college training and earn 80,000 or higher. PS - the higher the money made by a utican the MORE THEY BITCH THAT THEY ARE BROKE.
Since you are already up to your ears in debt, why not get a little further in debt by relocating to Virginia or Arizona or Oregon--a real place that has real jobs that require education and experience instead of being John Donato's cousin. Utica is a joke city full of joke people and most are dumber than a pile of rocks. The fact that you are aware of this means that you have at least twice the intelligence as the smartest of all Uticans. Get out before it's too late. I wish I could be 28 again. I've already wasted enough of my precious life in this chit hole. I don't want to waste any more.

Yootica is never going to be anything but a giant toilet. And all you turds will keep multiplying until nature fixes the problem. Have you ever wondered why there are so many deformities in the city of Chewtica? When people with single digit IQ's procreate the results aren't too pretty. It's natures way of preventing dummies from overpopulating the planet.

I find that most people who grew up here are blind to Utica's shabbiness. Having never lived anywhere else they have nothing to compare Utica to. Spending one's formative years in Utica also adds to this "blindness."
I didn't grow up here or spend too many of my formative years here so I don't have that problem. I've always known that Utica was a shabby town, but like all people who live here I sometimes have to work hard at "seeing" the blight that is everywhere.
Whenever I leave Utica and spend a few days somewhere else I feel like I come alive with happiness and excitement. All the smartness, sophistication, bigness and prosperity of other cities leaves Utica in the dust. The more I get out and see other parts of America the more I don't want to come back to the Sh*tHawk Valley.
Hopefully you got out.
