Let the taxpayers know the names of these people who padded their time sheets and overtime totaling over 7 grand and not counting days off they took, these people should be revealed and prosecuted and if they are in civil service public safety positions they should be forced to pay the money back and be fired. Also if they are retired they should be prosecuted by the state and city and they should forefeit their pensions. These people earn a great salary for this area and if they were robbing from the city they should be held responsible, they went after Franco for this, how come nothing is being done now. If this goes under the rug, Roefaro and Cerminaro should both resign.

Why doesn't our "comptroller" make them, DB, TP and god only knows who else, pay back the cash...simple... He's a mechanic not an accountant who's running our city into the ground. Of course with help from others too. Bond rating isn't half as good as it should be and probably won't be again. I'm embarrased to live here.

Cerminaro is a slug. He tried to physically attack Rocco Garro's friend Frank Vescera right during a Common Council meeting, with the cameras rolling! What until the video of that get leaked. It's scary!

There is definitely something very wrong here, why are they not revealing the names of these blood suckers. If this is not open to the public by the city the DA of Oneida County should open an investigation. Someone had to sign overtime slips and checks and these people actually committed grand larceny by stealing this money from the taxpayers. If Roefaro does not have the balls to investigate, he and Labella should both resign and if Cerminaro signed the checks he should make it known to the public that something was not kosher and if he does not he has a lot of balls running again when actually he should resign.

Because anyone who runs for public office in Utica needs the support of the police and fire departments. They all vote!

Anyone who runs for Controller who does not have a finance or accounting background should not only be ashamed of themselves but laughed off the ballot and NOT VOTED FOR!

Get your facts straight before you start accusing anyone. One of our brothers retirement checks was the right amount. The auditors didn't realize the officer had taken a leave of absence so therefore felt the pay-out was wrong. The check was completely on the money.

As for Cerminaro trying to attack Vescera....this will win Cerminaro more votes!

Yeah. Just ask Tim Julian how important thier support is. Most of them don't even live in the city. They screwed Tim over good and they'll do the same thing to Mike if he counts on them to win.
yeah right upd

Cerminaro will lose to Meola or Garro if he gets the support of the UFD and UPD, the people of this city have had it with the crap that has gone on in these 2 departments, most of these guys need baby sitters and if he alingns himself with Brooks like he did when he ran against Hanna for mayor it will be all over for him and you can take that one to the bank.
