Hey mayor, you need a river first. Oh yeah, the mohawk river. Give up mayor, you looser. A riverboat on mohawk wont fit, goof. Maybe you meant a speed boat casino?

its actually not a badidea. Why not. the turning stone is doing very very good. Dont get me wrong here thoug. This should be a private venture the city should stop getting involved with business ventures. I do no pay my taxes so some assswipe can gamble it away on risky businesses.

Canal boat gambling... That could be interesting , like maybe a canal tour of New York.

the only gambling on the Mohawk River will be bets placed on how many dead bodies are at the bottom.

Okay, now everyone pay close attention: The Mayor is to be admired for trying no-one is knocking him here but for firsts and lasts: Utica N.Y. will not, repeat not be hosting any Casino License for several various and immovable reasons. I wish I were wrong so they'd all end up under Fed inv. like Monticello and the FBI party last year but people who already know what the new NY gaming board are all about and who know the owners of a few interests in upstate have already spoken and Utica is not even in the same orbit here.

I'm sworn to secrecy until certain events unfold but forget it and go work on other issues. Utica has enough to go around.

So put a theater in your Riverboat and have shows and plays and dinner. Dinner Along the Mohawk or re-enactments. More fun. Less cigarette smoke. You guys want Vegas but don't think Vegas.

What is also ridiculous is asking the governor for a casino!
You ask those who own and run or want to invest in a casino.

With Chief Halbritter in the hood, no one is getting a casino anywhere near central New York. The mayor is up the creek with no paddle just like the poor taxpayers of Utica.

In 10 years old the retired folks with actual pensions and the time and money to gamble on a Monday afternoon will be DEAD. No one my age will ever have any extra money to throw away like that, so look down the road, mayor. We don't need a boulevard and we don't need a riverboat. We need you to upgrade JOBS AND SCHOOLS. We don't need Disney land.

Another incompetent mayor. Utica's claim to fame. The worst lawmakers in the nation.

If we dont get casino river boats, the pensions will be unfunded. Does NYS really want more pension obligations to fall on NYS shoulders?

Also, who gives a flying hoot what the Indians and Hallbriter want. They are an independent country and as long as they pay no taxes, I oppose their interest. Aren't you tired of our politicians working for Indians before working for taxpayers?

I dont even care if Cuomo's oligarchy of casino placement doesn't choose Utica for a casino. Bring the boats anyway. We have an empty harbor. If gambling is legal, It shouldn't be in Utica.

We need casinos to survive, Bring 'em if cuomo wants 'em here or not. He is no ceaser.
