It is time to elect a true leader to head Utica city government -- our fire chief, Russ Brooks. He is very intelligent, knowledgeable about city government and has been one of the most obvious choices for the mayor's office in decades. He's a family man, has extraordinary confidence in himself and is a Vietnam veteran. He fought for this country in the jungles of southeast Asia and will fight to reinvigorate Utica's economy. He will improve our standard of living and our quality of life.

He is a proven champion, taking on state judges and refusing to back down to anyone.

Support Russ Brooks for mayor in 2015.

I will vote for him IF HE PROMISES to get rid of CWSI on BELLE AVE...In fact, he can easily get 240 votes as they are on our petition!

If you look up narcissist in the dictionary, Rus Brooks' picture is in the definition. He's a legend in his own mind.

Russ Brooks is NYS's oldest active professional fire chief. He's 89. In 1965 at age 41 Brooks was drafted in the army. He was a 11B - front line infantryman. He was extended by 18 months and was discharged in 1969. I saw his 214. It lists for medals: 2 bronze stars, 1 silver star w/V device, 3 purple hearts -1w/Vdevice, 2 ArComms, a CIB, senior jumpmaster paratrooper wings, legion of merit, and meritorious service medal. There are other less prestigious medals but it comes out to 4 rows of ribbons. He was given a battlefield commission as a captain. On my next post, I'll list his UFD record...how over 70 years of service he's pulled 18 different firefighters out of 10 separate burning structure fires in the city.

You can tell that ALL of this was made up. I posted this because of the initial post about someone wanting Russ Brooks to run for Utica mayor. Yeah...lets see how that would work out. An instant 35% rise in property taxes to fund mostly the UFD and whatever is leftover the UPD. Brooks will never retire. He always complains about an understaffed dept. but his people gladly rack up tons of OT due to the ambulance committmit So his philosophy is keep cutting my dept. We'll just make it up in OT.
