LESS than the 60 million they got last year? ANY idea where that money went? The Southern Tier gets almost 98 million? It's that much more advanced? Probably. HORRAY for our "representatives" OH! Doesn't HANNA represent both areas? I'd cry FOUL but I do love wings!

Putting aside this questionable use of taxpayer funds, it is obvious that a Democrat governor would not award a lot of money to an area dominated by republicans. These decisions are political.

Is anyone really surprised by this? With our areas record for oversight spending, job creation and so forth we are probably lucky we got what we did.

$275k for the Baseball Hall of Fame that will allow users to access the entire Hall of Fame collection online, with images and curatorial comments.

That's great for tourism, correct? WASTE!

And what's with the state giving money to state colleges? Those will sure spur some economic development.

Sorry to poke holes in your complaints at mid-tantrum, some actual numbers....
Western NY, 52.8 million
Capital dist., 50 million
New York City, 51 million
Long Island, 58.7 million
MOHAWK VALLEY, 59.7 million

So, considering this area is quite literally the armpit of the state, a political cesspool, economically insignificant, what are you complaining about? Nearly $60 million in pork for an area that can't draw anything beside Walmart and Dunkin Donuts? MV got the 4th highest allocation in the state, WTF else can you greedy money grubbing blat asses possibly expect?

I'm just curious if any amount of free pork will satisfy you people that continue to propagate the demise of NYS?
Duh

Oops, my bad, Long Island got 59.7 not 58.7.

Darn, thumb hits wrong number on a 2" wide keypad and I lose my genius status. Thankfully we still have you.

I accurately refuted the original posters claim that the MV got the lowest amount, with factual data to back it up. Now you are regurgitation data that hasn't been questioned. You could copy and paste the whole report if you wish, it will still prove that the MV was not the lowest, then we may start to wonder why you call yourself "duh"?

The original poster never said that MV received the lowest amount.

The point he/she was making obviously went over your head. We can and should be able to improve in all areas (jobs etc..) from year to year.

Look at the title of the thread, or have someone with a third grade education read it to you. In case you have not yet had the opportunity to initiate a thread here, it is the original poster who names it. Talk about a point going over your head? You've missed the entire topic. Its becoming increasingly clear why your called "duh".

I know right? Look at them caw and crow santa brought these losers a new shiny fkng crutch this year! ROTFLAFAO!! As long as they can spout how intelligent they SOUND while flying down the toilet that's ok with them because you made a typo or actually thought it mattered lol! They seriously need to start checking for lead in the cny water around there these people are so generationally stupid [GENE being the operative in that!] and let their thin skin make them utterly dysfunctional so badly that they'd rather "look" sharp than "be" sharp.

It's just entertainment at this point yoootica and all the crazies there just need a reality show just to seal the deal. It is inevitable like a dual headon train wreck coming you know you simply can't stop. So pull up a chair, whip out the Fosters and some popcorn and enjoy the freakshow that's coming!

True, it's not like the title of the thread is "MV gets the least amt of regional economic development council funds," right?

Maybe some representation from someone who actually has some power and not a first time and hopefully last lame duck who is NOW on vacation while we sit on the edge of the cliff?

I'm on vacation at the edge of America, folly beach. News flash, Utica went over the fiscal cliff first, about two months ago. Palmieri is praying nobody noticed. I did. if we took a list of all the things that have gone wrong since bobby the buffoon took over, it would be compelling. Somebody like the comptroller should remind the mayor of the limited scope of his power, including the penalties for RICO violations. I have reason to believe that the mayor should have no power whatsoever, nor a paycheck.
