The core to the problem is not the politicians it is the ignorant that vote the wrong people in. From the Mayor to the Utica School Board the same group of voters are voting for the WRONG people. Leaders will not step forward and try to run because you can not FORCE the ignorant voter to get educated. How many Utica voters vote for the candidate with the vowel at the end of the name? The VOTERS in this area vote in the corrupt and that is why there is no hope.

You’re kidding right? You wonder why business is moving OUT of the area and then you support a bed tax in Herkimer County? You think the old GAFB is doing well when all that is happening is taxpayer money is subsidizing new business and as soon as the taxpayer money is gone that business is gone. You wonder what MV Edge MVEDD and the other waste of economic development fraudsters are doing to help the area. There doing NOTHING but lining their pockets with money.
You want business to come and stay here: Cut taxes on existing businesses not just new. Lobby for decrease in property taxes for ALL. Property taxes are outrageous and the first way to get reduced is to cut wasteful spending by local governments. The next this is get rid of the economic development fraudsters and maybe get some of the stimulus money they have been getting directly to local business instead of allowing the fraudster economic development agencies siphon out the money for themselves.

You mean spending less would benefit the citizens more than increasing taxes? That's a novel idea. Lol!

Someone is digging up old threads again, must be a slow day at the car lot. That asphalt must get hot in the summer.

Enjoy working the evening shift...I'm heading home to throw some shrimp on the grill.
