<quoted text>Maybe I will run for Mayor - LOL. I'm retired, I don't owe anyone any favors, could care less what other politians say or think about me, and I know how to budget money, and would lower the taxes all us homeowners have to pay to support those that don't do anything to support our City.
Boy - would I ever shake things up - LOL!
you're one of the biggest losers on topix. Your problem is you can't get rid of all the disparaging remarks you've made on this site across the years. Dude, you're way to nasty with people to represent them. The above statement as simple as it is suggest you don't have a clue. Where is the city spending money to support people that don't support this city? Please enlighten me.

You need somebody who left utica and returned successful who has no ties to anybody. Let the resume do his or her talking. I am tired of see people running for mayor for there own personal gain.

Has anyone ever watched Palmieri in person? He has A.D.D.. He'll stand there in a public situation like a young boy with A.D.D.. His eyes will wander all over the place, and you can almost feel the urge he has to go run off and play.
Utica's only hope is to shed the Old Boys Italian mafia wannabes, the same ones that protected Roefaro and told him he needed to go, while using their power to prevent his real story from going public. They used their power over the Utica OD and local media to make sure he didn't bring them down with him. Hell, his wife's family made it perfectly clear he needed to go,. They protected him despite what he did to her.
Palmieri is just as tied to those Old Boys. Nothing has changed except the face.

Palmieri's sweeps are nothing but photo ops. He claims to be addressing quality of life, but the real problems aren't being addressed. However people felt about Giuliani in NYC, he had the right idea and things improved vastly under him. He addressed the small things as a way to make inroads on the big things. If you want to get to the drug dealers, gangs and lowlifes you have to hit the little things. If the drug people are driving away with loud car stereos and having loud parties at their houses......use the noise ordinance and use that to attack them as nuisances and use it as probable cause. If they have no respect for property, use something as little as an officer writing them up for littering. If they are regularly gathering at known locations arrest them for loitering. Stop giving warnings and actually issue tickets and make arrests. Use that to as probably cause and make real inroads at these people. The lowlifes have a common lack of respect for the community, and it can be used to get at them. Problem is, Palmieri's all talk. The UPD doesn't follow through because they don't want to be bothered with all of the paperwork involved.

Is there even a noise ordinance? It's never enforced. They probably could fine half of Oneida Street all the way up to the cemetery and south Utica on Van Vorst and Storrs, music, screaming, parties, but all after midnight.

It's there. Years ago, mayor Hannah even bought decibel meters for police officers. They were never used, and nobody on the force even remembers it. The code is there, it's just not enforced:
