S.d. Was approached to locate the Chobani factory at Griffiss. He told them no, then they found the place in Edmunston. Happened a few years back, but Stevey did not want a "farm" operation at Griffiss. Ask him about it! Guess he did not think it came with 1200 jobs. What a dumb ass!

If this is true along with years of no progress in Marcy Nano and no focus on Utica, he needs to step down now....let someone else in and change the whole EDGE board too!

First of all I have no experience or expertise in redeveloping anything on this scale but common sense dictates the reality is we don't have a skilled workforce or resources to support what Dimeo's group is trying to accomplish. This is through the eyes of a small business owner making chicken feed compared to what Oneida County taxpayers are forking over to these clowns each year accomplishing nothing. If I focused on unobtainable goals I'd be out of business within a year. What are these people doing with our money and when will Oneida County pull the plug on this charade?

Is it possible to have "leaders" who are more incompetent? What we will hear now is that it's all someone else's fault; that all of this is out of our control, that we are being done-in by nameless, evil, invisible beurocrats who, for some unknown reason, keep foiling our efforts at economic development.

And while this plays out, other parts of the country, with leaders with half a brain and at least a minimal amount of vision, anticipate and plan for these contingencies, take measures to avoid these problems or at the very least, are prepared to pivot to alternative courses of action when problems arise, and as a result, they are positioned to take advantage of opportunities and overcome obstacles, and their areas prosper. Us: an endless death spiral of political incompetence and economic depression.

This sh.t has been playing out for what, 10, 12, 15 years? With virtually no progress, except for the occassional bogus announcement of a "big development" which is trotted out every 4 years right before an election, and which develops into...... nothing after the election is over.

But there is still hope: we have Richard Hanna!!!

LOL.

Agree. Complete incompetence. Anyone that owns a business knows that things don't go as planned. You need to be able to adapt, have an alternate plan(s). And don't ever announce it to the public until the deal is done.

The leaders, and I'm using that term loosely have no idea on how to conceptualize, plan, and execute any venture to its successful end. They can't even do it with someone else money. They are all lazy, inept, and there is no objectivity or accountability in their jobs. They get paid the same whether they succeed or fail . It's nuts.

Yeah we get screwed but we still send the same politicians back into office.

Can someone point to one major success we have had here?

How about a minor one?

But the politicians are still sent back, so what result do we expect? Sad to say that the whole system is corrupt and the only solution is to get out while you can because it's not going to get better anytime soon.

This has been such a joke from the beginning. EDGE blames Army Corp of Engineers, when in fact they are doing the right thing. More money would be wasted on site work on speculation. This is the old "Field of Dreams" concept, if you build it, they will come. Only works in the movies.

Yep, time to end MV Edge. All they do now is help businesses move from one part of the county to another. Or better yet, let DiMeo get a real job and bring in some new blood with fresh ideas.
