For the life of me I can't understand why the topic trolls bad mouth Larry Tanoury. He was the only legislator that refused to raise taxes. David Roefaro bankrupt the city. When he put Labella in it added another level of mgmt and cost the city thousands. Frank Tallarico is an idiot and only wants to make Pincente look bad. Dave Gordon is confused and his only accomplisment is to have the legislators say the pledge of allegiance. Hormoney Speciale is on welfare and has no experience. Hendricks missed 80 per cent of the meetings and David testa is a nice guy but also confused. Again Larry is the only one that would vote agaisnt tax increases and the topic trolls condemn him. You deserve what you get..

I've met and talked with Larry and I agree 100% on what you posted.

Larry keeps getting the short end of the stick as he does NOT play the political game with the "big bosses" that has controlled Utica's politics for decades - resulting in the decay of the City we all are experiencing now.

Maybe if more people had the nerves of steel and Larry's knowledge and willing to fight for the taxpapers that are carrying the load of all these increases in taxes, this City could be turned around and get Big Business to come back with decent paying jobs .

Hang in there, Larry - you DO have a support system among many of us.

I wish Frank and Gordon worked more on the budget instead of talking about Tanoury. With some tweaking they could have passed the budget with no increase. At least Larry spent his time trying to prevent tax increases. If Larry was the minority leader the tax increase would have not have happened.

The Democratic Leadership in the county will never support Larry. If you can't beat Hendricks or Testa who can you beat? Everyone knew Testa was running and they talked Larry into running. We figured Dave has never ran a campaign, green and an unknown and even Larry could beat him. We were wrong. We would like Larry to flip and become a Republican. At least if he was a republican and ran we would be guaranteed a win. He is an annoying Gnat!!!

Really? The fact that the "leadership" would never support him is even more reason that I would. the leadership doesn't have as much power as you think. We, the PEOPLE, decide elections. That's why your endorsed candidates have lost so many primaries lately.

With that said, I see Larry as one heck of a legislator. Problem is that he made too many political enemies too fast. He need to build up his own organization first. But he's at least half the age of the average politician around here. If he stays independent and involved, he'll be back and can write his own ticket to whatever office he wants. He just needs to stay the heck away from that Vescera and his crew. They burned him once, hopefully he doesn't fall for their crap again.

Hey Larry

Please don't take this the wrong way but have you ever thought of running as a Republican? You have many of the ideas that really would be popular with the Republicans. You wanted to balance the budget, hold government accountable, you wanted a smaller government, no tax increases, voted against the Sheriffs huge raise.

Maybe, just maybe that is why you didn't attract more democrats? If I remember right you also wanted to reduce the number of legislators.

Just a thought
