My in-laws live in the house that my wife and I own (and still do). My mother-in-law is confined to a wheelchair due to a stroke she suffered about ten years ago, so we took them in, modified our house with a wheelchair accessible ramp, and after we moved, we let them stay there because their pensions and Social Security payments are gobbled up by the cost of their health insurance and the occasional home health aide.

Maybe I forgot to mention, that even though I do not live in Utica anymore, I still pay the property taxes on the house. So even though I am an "Ex-Utican," my money still supports your city government.

I, or someone before me, mentioned the narrow-mindedness of the people of Utica. You, sorry to say, are a classic example of it. Just because someone doesn't currently live there doesn't mean that they don't have family (in my case), friends (also in my case), a business, investment property, or what have you that makes them stakeholders in Utica and thus entitles them to a say in what goes on there.

I fully encourage you to travel outside of Utica for an extended period of time. Look around at the people, the buildings, the businesses. Get a local paper and see what is making news, because I can virtually guarantee that it is nothing even remotely close to the circus that goes on in Utica.

The newspaper here talked about how the outgoing mayor of White Plains (next town over from me) shredded his personal correspondence right before he left office.

Scandalous.

You all need to get a grip on what happened to your area.
I mean seriously.
You all have been living like this for so long.You don't see how downhill your city and area has gone.I don't know what the problems are.And I cant give you any real answers.Except get rid of your politicians.Start with fresh people and ideas.That would be a good start.
I left that area twenty years ago. The problem with the whole of NY is that good productive people leave and welfare moves in. Long ago my Dad told me that NY would be nothing but casinos and nursing homes...turns out he is right. But the politicians like the welfare state after all they let them vote.
You make me sick

I am ashamed to be your son and embarrassed by you.
If you didnt want to loose your drug and booze money you shouldnt break the law!
You always do the same thing, you break the law then when you have to pay you get made because you have to use your welfare money that was meant in your eyes for your drugs so you cry corruption. Well dad the judge didnt believe you, no one believed you and you only make yourself look like even more of a deadbeat scumball. You are like the "thing" that cried wolf. When you cry the same thing over and over just because you are a loser and a deadbeat people arent dumb, they can tell you are a crazy deadbeat loser.
Look how you went around the internet and on the radio begging people for money towards your fine. You know how embarrassing that was? Do you even care? That right there proved you are a loser. Get a job you fat freak then you can have a say in things until then you are just welfare trash and your opinion doesnt mean a thing.
OMG Dad you really are a complete lunatic. Do you really think you are fooling anyone? You constantly talk about yourself in the 3rd person thinking you are fooling people but the truth is you arent, and you doing that only proved the point that you are mentally ill.
Do you think you can say anything you want and slander others and no one should do the same to you? Well sorry Dad you pathetic deadbeat loser but I dont think so. You shouldn't dish it out if you cant take it. You are the one that goes to multiple message boards slandering the Chief and others.
You don't work and as stated by you many many times you dont plan on ever working again even though you are scamming the State and the taxpayers out pf money to go to school to learn supposed job skills(although how much can the ARC really teach someone like you) and you have been milking it for years.
You do nothing but criticize others even though you sit on your fat pathetic a$$ all day every day while they are out working supporting there families and through taxes supporting you and me.
You cry like a fairy about how 1 comment supposedly said 3 years ago "ruined your life" yet you keep stirring things up every day because you have no life, no friends and no brains so you have nothing better to do.
You have ZERO right to criticize anyone and you have ZERO say in anything until you get a job like a real man and father and pay taxes. Until then what goes on and what people do is none of your concern and you can post under as many names as you want you schizophrenic nutjob but I assure you no one is fooled and you only make yourself even more of a laughing stock and an embarrassment that you already are.
I suggest you stick to getting drunk and high and playing with yourself while reading your Boy's life magazine. That is about all you are good at and you will never change. You are total welfare gutter trash and you sicken real men and fathers and your days of abuse towards me are over!
Stop selling your mental health drugs Dad and start taking them. Then maybe eventually you will see yourself for the trash everyone else sees you as and maybe then you wont die a lonely pathetic, waste of flesh. You will never be a man, you just don't have it in you.

Apology accepted.

You have the same political pull everyone else does. You have a vote. Don't waste it because your vote and your voice could speak for others.

As sad as this is to say, anyone that was born and/or raised in Utica probably will not elevate Utica out of the financial muck and mire it is in now.

I direct you to look back at the last Comptroller's race. An accountant comes in third behind a mechanic and a convicted felon.

So long as people with connections continue to sell jobs/appointments at city hall, Utica is doomed.

I live here for the time being and couldnt agree more with you, everyone wonders why all the "young" people are leaving, well as you see and anyone with a clear head can see is that this area blows and everyone here hates their lives because of how depressing this area is, so what your speaking is the truth
Did you leave yet?
