Although The Common Council Voted against Palmieri's budget there were 5 members who voted against amendments which would have lowered the property tax increase of 8.73%. These five members who voted to stick it to the taxpayers were, James Flemma, Joseph Marino, Jerome McKinsey, Samantha Colosimo-Testa and Edward Bucciero. These members should be exposed for their complete disregard for the taxpayers they represent, They are what is wrong with Utica and they have their own special agenda with their own private interest and are just puppets in a political scheme to keep them and their families in the clover.. Do not be bull shitted by their vote against the budget, they voted against the amendments knowing full well that the increase would go over and they are the lackies to the incompetent mayor we have..
screw the taxpayers

The process was rigged from the get go. Council members made a lot of noise in the media about cutting the budget & lowering the tax hike. But in the end they offered no amendments to accomplish this. So palmieri's budget went thru just as he offered it. So plsmieri & the council members get a pay raise while they shove it to Utica taxpayer's. The whole process was a back door deal- vote for the budget, get a pay raise. Fu*k Utica & the bandits who run it. We have to dig deeper while these bastards get a pay raise? My home will be on the market soon.

Only in Utica. Elected politicians vote themselves a pay raise while raising taxes. Bunch of scumbags.
