The Utica sign is a worse idea than the New Hartford Library. Now that's bad.

It's completely true. As an employer... cheap, cheap, cheap!

What self-respecting city erects a huge sign with its name on it? This is not only childish, it is downright awful. No wonder Utica remains the smelly armpit of NY State.
Well, you'd have to look up 'Weirs Beach'. I'm from there, and I gotta tell you, the only thing that stinks about the place is the throngs of tourists and bikers on a hot and humid day....but we love 'em anyway!

In fact, the Weirs COC recently spent some $50k+ to refurbish that sign. It is a beloved landmark.

We have to look like a city of hillbillies.
1. Utica barely qualifies as a "city".

2. Hillbillies have much more class than Uticans.

Sadly, dead on. We live in a pathetic city.

Oh, no! The Locals wouldn't like that. Too much traffic, too much disruption of their sequestered lives. Why, people with DIFFERENT IDEAS might show up for this, and where would they park? No. NO. We like our little town just the way that it is: a sparkly city of Hope 'n' Change - with no inconveniences when we go get our lottery tickets and EBT cards.

Well maybe if you had an education or some sort of skill you would make more money. But seeing as you are probably a dropout with no skills whatsoever you get paid what your worth. Let me guess, because Frank made himself rich because of the hard work he put in, you feel he should just give it to you? I also believe he offers employee sick options and hands out bonuses to deserving employees. If your not one of them, STFU go back to work and make him another million!!

The Utica Sign is wonderful! Now I can be proud to live in Utica, if for no other reason than there is a sign to tell me where Utica is. This sign will bring tourists from all over the globe to Utica. It is certain to become the eighth wonder of the world! It is destined to become a more popular destination than the Parthenon or the Coleseum. Why bother going to NYC to see the Statue of Liberty when you can see the Utica Sign? This will bring prosperity and jobs to Utica and it will be the saving grace of the Mohawk Valley.(Okay, I guess now its time for me to take my meds.)
