"New York state didn't bid on the so-called "Project Azalea," a multibillion-dollar computer chip fab project believed to have been tied to Apple's supply of chips for the iPhone and iPad.

The Cuomo administration was reluctant to offer a financial incentive package because it did not believe that Deloitte, the international consulting firm pitching the deal, had a client in place.

"There was no offer because the state didn't believe the project was real," a top state official said on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk on the record........

Still, state officials believe that there is plenty of interest in the Marcy site and that a chip manufacturer will locate there in the near future."

That last sentence says it all. Isn't that the same line we've heard for a decade or more?

The EDGE and any politician behind this is dirt scum. Griffo, Brindisi and Cuomo. Look at the names on the MV EDGE Board past and present you'll see why certain people keep getting the huge funding the state is throwing at this boondoggle in return for "Hooray!!! Hooray Thank YOU!!!!" speeches and BS. It's a shame mosques and churches are blown up all day every day but no one has thought to put an end to this ripoff scheme?

Maybe if this nano tech chip plant thing doesn't work out, we could convert this site into a potato chip or tortilla chip plant instead. Or maybe a chocolate chip plant. At least that way Utica can still say they got their chip plant.

When a story like this comes out why is it that local media isn't all over it?

It seems like it would be prudent for them to get explanations or clarification so that the general taxpaying public can stay up to date regarding how their money is being spent doesn't it? Is it that they are lazy? Don't care? Are afraid to disrupt the narrative that has 5,000 jobs coming to the area?

The average person doesn't have the kind of access that the media does.

I'm talking about the OD, WKTV, WIBX , WUTQ.

These are the regular folks only link to news that's being made locally.

Where are they? Too busy with the Kogut candlelight vigil and the Feast of Sts. Cosmas and Damiane coverage I guess.

Nothing to the story?

The company who was supposedly representing the chip manufacturer and had expressed interest in the Marcy site turns out to not have a client and that's not a story? What it means is that there is no ultra-secretive, behind the scenes manufacturer trying to swing a sweet deal for use of the site. There is just the CNSE(SUNY) using taxpayer money to put up a very expensive building in the hope that someone will lease space from them.

Again from the article:

"New York state didn't bid on the so-called "Project Azalea," a multibillion-dollar computer chip fab project believed to have been tied to Apple's supply of chips for the iPhone and iPad.

The Cuomo administration was reluctant to offer a financial incentive package because it did not believe that Deloitte, the international consulting firm pitching the deal, had a client in place.

"There was no offer because the state didn't believe the project was real," a top state official said on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk on the record........"

A private sector manufacturer is the foundation for all of the hoopla surrounding the Marcy site. Without that manufacturer this is nothing more than another taxpayer funded scheme with the hope of economic development.
