He brags of six straight years of budget surpluses and multi-millions in revenue from the new agreement with the Oneidas and still not reduction in the sales tax?

It's high taxes, union domination, over regulation and too many social programs that are keeping our county, our region and our state from prospering. People need to insist that our elected representatives at all levels of government do something about those things rather than letting them tell us how they are going to spend our money.

His only 'idea' was a merger between MVCC And HCCC. He has absolutely no control or power over either institution. If he had just one working cell in his brain, he would know that it's not going to happen now, or ever. If that was the best he had, he's most definitely on empty.

I wouldn't put it past halbritter to buy off Piss-ente just to have a local power broker in his pocket. Everyone knows most of the judges have been bought & sold by halbritter...every court decision effecting them has gone their way. I'm sure Andrew the Pious is having his palms greased, also. Its great having a tax-free $500M enterprise in your portfolio.

Is the love child a boy or girl?
Did the midget pass out cigars?
Does Tony Pisshead get free BBQ at Piggy Pats for knocking up the owners daughter?
Will the child be a love midget?

Look morons. Be quiet and pay your overinflated sales tax. I'm Tony Picente and I want TO RUN IT ALL. One county isn't enough for MY ego; I want to run Herkimer County (into the ground) as well.

I proposed merging the colleges so I can call it a political win for ME. It doesn't matter that I have NO authority over educational institutions. Little things like that won't stop ME. I'll propose to run anything and everything! I have nothing to do with law enforcement and you can't go a mile without seening my "DWI, You Can't Afford It" signs (at taxpayer expense).

After my best buddy (and useless tool) Kevin Revere is finished destroying the Oneida County Emergency Response Center, I'll propose to merge it with Herkimer County, and propose to operate the combined facility with less cost (bold faced lie), and then blame the funding shortage on unforeseen mandates and the high cost of additional services. I'm a genius! Just think, Herkimer County has all those roads I can plant my silly "Stop DWI" signs on at additional taxpayer expense (you all know how I love to see my name splashed all over hell's half acre). Oh Goody!

Maybe I'll propose more cellphone taxes too.

Ah, it's good to be King (placing feet up on desk).

Whats the real reason Piss-ant wants to merge the 2 colleges? He's got something up his sleeve. Maybe he can appoint more of his goombahs to high-paid no-show jobs at the colleges. He is definitely a control freak.

Pisshead says his merger scheme "reflects forward thinking" & I quote the King. He fucked up the sewer deal with the state costing us millions & he wants to merge the 2 colleges? He couldn't manage a bird cage & he wants more. Maybe the idiot voters will wake up & vote pisshead out. But don't count on it.

Tony hired that incompetent lawyer Greg Amoroso to be county attorney.
