we desperately need a new Mayor. I was really disappointed when he received a new car. This could have been given to a police officer for patrol. if a Mayor is going to lead, he should set the example. How do expect others to follow if you set a bad example. He needs to be serious about the budget since we cannot afford another hike. I look at other people in leadership positions and shake my head. Frank Tallarino cannot lead and Dave Gordon spends most of his time trying to get Franks job. Frank needs someone to run against him. Dave would really like to be Mayor but all he does is talk and collect unemployment insurance. Frank Verseca likes to make others look bad and fight. This time should be working on the budget.

I am working to get Larry Tanoury elected Mayor. He will be the only person that would not raise taxes. Please think about it and who do you think would have the backbone to say no. Larry may haves issues but is only one that has a chance of succeeding. My daughter Michelle and I will be starting a campaign for Larry and hope you will support us. Your future tax bill depends on I!!!!

I think anyone who runs for Mayor in the future should understand alittle bit about it's history.
Utica is pre- Revolutionary, thats long time, to not capitalize on its very existence is outright shameful.
Utica is also a blue-collar to service city, the poverty rate is 29 percent and climbing. We have one of the largest refugee inhabitants around.
We have to realize we have a large housing stock here. At the rate the current administration is doing I am about to cut my losss and add to it.
There is no room for increases in payroll, capital spending or taxes. There is no room for the bleeding hearts to give, sacrifice and dole out charatable funds anymore. In a world of what you give comes back ten fold...I think not. Crime is high, our police department uneffective, city counsil a laughing stock to say it mildly, our mayor(s) the least talented n 30 years, you place a tax burden on every home owner to get decreased property value in return, you shove garbage fees on us, plant unwated trees, sell our water company, want full time benefits for part time personel, invest money into a phantom downtown, one day we bag leaves next day on the curb, pick them up one day forget them he next, I rather bag them and bring them to the dump if that meant firing half the dpw.
To say it as meaningful as I can....Utica..the token of a broken memory!!!!

If you enjoy a dictatorship keep going on the Larry train. Issues,that he has have no place in a position of authority. He is a narcissistic, mentally unsteady man. Why on earth would you carry his flag?

I don't think Larry would run against Palmieri. He seems to be singing Palmieri's praises too much. He has fought against tax increases, but seems scared to run for a higher office. I don't get the mental issues thing. He's passionate about politics and corruption, but otherwise a laid back guy. I just don't understand why he supports Palmieri and Brindisi so much. Whatever.

The CEO of a major not for profit could be an excellent idea. Think of a hospital administrator, or someone like that. These people deal with tight budgets every day.
