Bottom line...

Testa = Part of the "friends and family plan" and goombah crowd. Will be a rubber stamp for the machine and has no clue what the issues are.

Tanoury, Jr.= will stand up to the friends and family plan, will stand up for the people, will be an active councilman and will never sellout.

Absolutey,a debate is a great way to get the community involved and to see where the candidates stand with the issues. I can't imagine why they wouldn't want a debate.

You sound like a damn parrot. I live in York Heights, for the record, and I can tell you that we're coming out strong for Larry.

Is that the only campaign mantra Testa can think of? Again, Tanoury was raised on Springate St. and his family is from Stevens St. He lives on Stevens St. and went to Kernan School, played WU Little League, etc., etc., etc. Guess Dave still thinks it's 1980. Sorry to tell ya, but just because Larry's dad was councilman in Cornhill doesn't mean that's where Larry grew up. He was 2 years old when his father left office and his parents split up. Get your facts straight. But the people know better and that's why he wins. He knows more West Uticans than you do, Dave. you know your little clique in your neighborhood and that's it. And your friends at your bar stool.
Also, Larry lived there longer than Jim Zecca, and Zecca has been the best councilman in decades for West Utica. Remember, Zecca was born and raised in Brooklyn. So, enough of the small minded crap. Go read a book or something.
TRUE, TRUE, TRUE... all so very true!

Larry has been very visible and vocal but where's Testa been? I have never seen him at a block meeting or anything else to do with the community or the neighborhood.Why should I vote for him?A debate may bring out the issues and who can address them more effectively. If you're reading this Tanoury & Testa lets get this debate scheduled...time is running out!!!!!!!
vote NO for harmony

would any of you want your child in school have a teacher that's a drug addict/alcohalic, had no educational training,knowledge or experience?
would you send your child to day care to have someone ,that's a drug addict/alcohalic, with no experience,training or knowledge of what to do outside of baby sitting their nephew?
would any of you want a contractor build you a house,that is a drug addict/acohalic, had no training or experience,but he did just learn to build a bird house?
would you have a doctor diagnose your health if they were a drug addict/alcohalic,had no education in that field,no experience or knowledge other than watching medical shows?
would any of you want a finacial advisor that was a drug addict/alcohalic,had no training,experience or knowledge of finances other than writing a deposit slip?
i would say NO to all those questions. i think all of you reading this would say NO. so,my question is,why would you want harmony,that is a drug addict/alcohalic,never paid taxes,never owned property,has no work experience(because she has never worked,collects welfare),with no training,no experience or knowledge of politics other than making public appearences about codes violations
(which she herself violated codes) and attend a few city meetings be elected county legislator? why would you want someone like this represent YOU and have any say in what needs to be done.
say NO to drugs
say NO to harmony for legislator
most of the post that are on here defending harmony are from her,she changes her ip address,some are from a friend of hers. most of the info on here about harmony"s past and present are true.
vote for the RIGHT reason,not for her looks(i think she looks like a man,sorry)or you feel sorry for her or because you just dont like howard welch. anyone can talk like they know what they're saying,but lets do the RIGHT thing.
don't be decieved by her door to door campaigning with other politicions,she is NOT part of their team. she was trying to mke people think that. those politicians have distanced temselfs from her now!!!!

Mello is a 50 lb paper weight. What a joke. All the l testas are the same. As for tanoury. He is still a punk.

For the record, the primary is OVER. Tanoury is OUT of the race and ran a class act campaign. And after Testa won, they have shown class by working together. Tanoury has endorsed Testa as has Jim Zecca. Enough nonsense. And it's not Mello Testa nor are they related. Dave Testa was born and raised in West Utica and will make a fine Councilman. As for Elefante, Tanoury has never met her and has no problem with her. He can't control what his supporters may say anonymously, that's politics. But Testa and Tanoury ran a class act campaign and have raised the bar for how you come together after a primary. Even their supporters are working together.

So, vote Dave Testa on November 8th.
