Yes or No? Maybe?

I can see a vacant lot; Sen. Griffo wearing a hard hat and holding a shovel; promising a bright future.
OK. So, the picture is from the past; it was a month or so before the elections, and the bright future was his, not ours.

Well, just how many stories have we heard in the last 60 or so years about glorious fiber optic plants and call centers and this and that? How many huge companies have bailed out of Utica? Some that come to mind include Chicago Pneumatic, GE, and Orion Bus. I'm sure there are more. It really would be good for Utica to have a nano center, but it makes no sense to me why they would ever build something of this scale here. Seems like it would make more sense to build it in a multitude of other places. I think this is more of the same smoke and mirrors that we've all seen around here before. It is something that will make the politicians look good for awhile, then after all the hope and dreams turn to dust and fade away, they will say that they tried and now we need to raise taxes some more so we can attract some other new technology of the future to the wonderful Mohawk Valley. The facts are that large companies are fleeing CNY. They are heading away from here. Take a look down the Thruway towards Syracuse and you will see a huge empty plant that was once home to New Process Gear. I just don't understand any of this. Tell me why any large corporation would make an investment in a place that will incur more costs than in a place that has far better incentives. Do the people of Utica realize that if this mystery corporation were to be given tax incentives to locate this albatross in Marcy, the rest of us would have to subsidize the lost revenue with our taxes?
