Morehouse admits he would hire people to do HIS job but would oversee what they were doing. Morehouse is no more than Palmeiri puppet on a string. There are no checks and balances in Utica's finances. Palmeiri is calling the shots and he will be telling Morehouse who to hire and why, like because we have to move the city forward, like raising your taxes more for less services. Voters will get exactly what they deserve and just made times more difficult than before. You have been watching these clowns run this city into the ground for years but still vote and choose to see them continue. God Bless us all.

I think it's funny watching them all screw up and suffer. They ask for it. They tolerate it. They deserve it. Utica is exactly where it needs to be. Nowhere.

I was wondering what difference his election makes and why there was no Republican or true independent candidate.

The truth is that the numbers are the numbers. Doesn't matter who is in that position. Utica is dying a slow economic death a la Detroit and instead of joining together for the good of the city there is just rampant dysfunction among our elected officials.

The numbers are the numbers and unless and until elected officials address things like public safety pension costs nothing is going to change.

Imagine yourself a business thinking about locating here. What would you think if you were looking in on the current state of Utica politics, spending and schools? Three very important things. What would you think if you had heard the exchange between the newly elected comptroller and the local talk show host on the morning after the election. I hope the nano people aren't seeing all of this nonsense, posturing and dysfunction.

The "nano people" don't exist. Just the ones pretending they're interested long enough to soak up the goodness and leave. There will never be a huge nano industry in NY for th elosers and underachievers and politicians to live of. They're wel;l aware of the NY State of Mind and people like me remind them in our dealings every chance we get out of needing to keep NYS supressed. It's pretty easy when all you have to do is point them to the links and the facts about why business LEAVES ny, not "stays".

Again you deserve it people. Look at what you all are. We do.

Morehouse was elected to make Utica the laughing stock of the state.

The State control board will have to take over now. Morehouse's job was to get elected and not to run the cities finances. I agree, that will be done behind the smoke and mirrors with Palmeiris lawyers and henchmen doing the job. Morehouse will be an absentee comptroller and only comptroller by name as figure head.

What the hell were Utica voters thinking hiring just a figurehead for $70,000 plus and then hiring others to do his job. Must be the koolaide in the water or plain ole deaf, dumb, and stupid people who just can't help themselves.

Unfortunately a control board may be the only way to solve the real problem. When Utica reaches its' mandated debt limit it will be time. I don't think that the current government made up of the same recycled names is going to do anything about the real systemic problems that are causing the ever increasing taxes and more frequent borrowing. Think about it. what person in their right mind would want to take on the unions and try to negotiate for pension and benefit reform?

It's like Roger Daltry first sang back in 1971:

The city is nothing but smoke screens. 95% of what Palmieri tells you are lies. Zecca would of exploited him and that is why they needed Puppet Moresuck to get in. 70k to do nothing but be a scape goat. Morehouse is wanted by many local bookies and bigshots. This is why he is being used.
the new poster politician

Utica has made the same mistake as with Morehouse as with Roefaro. Morehouse was Roefaro's puppet and went along with every tax increase every year and was in on all the raises, increased benefits,and pension padding of public safety. They also lined many pockets of lawyers, friends and family plans. Morehouse should be the poster politician for corruption and people should be reminded of the draining of the water board funds and all city accounts by him and the Roefaro administration which put the final nails in Utica's coffin. They remind of that Chicago guy that went to jail, Blockovich or something like that.

Is it just me, or does Bill Morehouse look like Mike Wolfe of "American Pickers"?

As the oldest active professional fire chief in NYS (I'm 89) I think Bill Morehouse will do a swell job. Serving the city for the last 68 years I've seen alot of good & bad in our city. Nothing compares to the horrors of front-line duty in Vietnam but Utica's future looks bright. The UFD is understaffed, however, and we need some replacement rigs along with about 12 new hires to the dept. I also feel an across-the-board raise of 12% for all public safety personnel is in order.
