There is a big difference though, Hage got money for getting Utica zero dollars and Roefaro and him demanded it. The county lawyers aren't going to be paid if no money is recovered. A huge difference.

Try this on for size: The county employs a county attorney with complete staff, year round. They also employ countless private attorneys and pays their health care for various legal duties accomplished.
If the state legally owes the county money why should the taxpayer dole out anything to some legal firm to collect this money for us?

Can anyone be surprised that B,S and K is the law firm hired by OC to retrieve our own money already owed to us by NYS? Initially, why can't the OC full-time attorney office follow this payment through the system since NYS already OWES us the money? Secondly, does anyone remember Tony Picente's political mentor, and former OC CE, Ray Meier? Guess who employs Mr. Meier as an attorney? You betcha!

Why should we pay another law firm to recoup our own money which NYS admittedly owes OC? We employ a full staff in the OC attorney's office for these purposes.

Did you not hear Picente? He said because it would take so much time and expertise that they couldn't handle it. Taxes going up forever in Oneida, county, Utica, and Utica school district until taxpayer go belly up and nothing to show for it.
