Sin City! Utica will never change. Utica is controlled by the same people from the same families who are all related, and this has been the case for many years.

The guy is clean, educated, experienced and involved. People vote for criminals just about every election in Utica. So why care what his Grandpa did?

This city will never learn, Falcone is not his grandfather, THE old saying "Never judge a book
by its cover" applies. you can't make a decision
by the past. We tried new for mayor and look
what you got. and again old is best.
Falcone, Caruso, I would go with them at least you know where they came from.
Years ago bootlegging was done by many and it hasn't hurt us today. MY OPINION

You can say what you want about Italians but apparently they are the only ones in this city to
try and make it better.
Is too bad that on TOPIX no one has a positve remark about anyone or anything. They spend time degrading anyone any nationality that are actually trying to help the city.
YOU ARE PEOPLE THAT HATE THEMSELVES

Just more and more of the same. Utica will never change. The politics and politicians of this town are a joke.
nonsense

If you follow any politicans any where its not JUST Utica. There is a bad apple every where, in all cities and in our congress, follow them for a\
while and see what you get. People use UTICA as an
excuse for what ever ails them. Don't like it then
leave, a lot of people like it. Move to Boston
still problems, Washington, still problems,
TRY IRAQ maybe you will realize how lucky you are.

If his grandfather doesn't matter, does it make a difference that he's a lazy, Utica no-mind?

Does an Walnut Tree have nuts. Of course it makes a difference that his grandfather was a Mafia Goon. The kid sat on his lap being rocked to sleep with stories of loan sharking and retribution. He was probably inspired with tales of Mafia Heroes living up to their blood oath and went to sleep dreaming of his first silk suit and running through the woods of Appalachia.
