The sad truth of the matter is that it's not IF Utica will join Detroit in bankruptcy, it's WHEN. The EXACT same ingredients are all there.

Sorry, policemen and firemen and sanitation workers. The city cannot pay for promises that it made when it had twice as many people, with no tax base and no commercial sector. Your greedy unions are going to drive Utica into insolvency by expecting more than half of tax revenue go towards meeting pension and insurance costs.

65% of your taxes there go to pay for the overfunded freakshow.

I love to see this believe in Utica and things are a changing.... Comets, a new Fairfield hotel???? It's eminent the city WILL go bankrupt - no question .... To far along to recoup anything - should actually claim bankruptcy and start fresh- only hope!

Too many Ooticans feeding from the trough. They borrow and tax before going bankrupt on Union contracts. It's not about saving the city it's about their own perks at stake.

Like Utica, Detroit also has a refugee center. It is a favorite drop off for the Iraqui refugees. If you haven't had the opportunity of dealing with an Iraqui you are in for a treat. I want to be as far away from those people as possible. Give me the Russians, Bosnians, Vietnamese, Sudanese any day. Hell, I would even choose the scum of the scum Burmese over the Iraqui's

What truly amazes me is how everyone in Oneida County knows what the problems are but does nothing to fix them. Why are people like Picente and Soldato still in office with all these issues in our county? They're the problem. All the issues people speak on come from their offices. Who allows the welfare scandals to continue? It's your commissioner with the green light from your county executive. These people have already ruined the county while lining their pockets and putting friends and family into compromising positions, but to keep them there is baffling. Your executive just sold the county out for a few bucks in his pocket. Amazing to even fathom this guy in a higher office.

So because Oneida County is the welfare capital of the world, do we actually need to live up to those standards? If 1/2 of your county is on some form of assistance then its pretty obvious the people in office aren't doing there job, and haven't been. So make sure to keep voting these same POS into office year after year and ask yourself why the area is where it is.
