I have noticed Picente's new "Buy Local" campaign. It wold be nice if he thought about we he was going to air it before he did. All of the entities he's running it on are out of town owned businesses. Hey Picente how about you do your research next time and when you have money to spend on a buy local campaign you buy media that is owned and operated by people who actually live in the Utica market?

This reminds me of Chris Christie's using Sandy Relief Funds for his commercials on the shore during his reelection. Where did the money come from? It doesn't say "paid for by" anywhere.

And if it is tourism funds, then maybe a commercial featuring actual business owners would go a long way. Not a headshot of him in his palatial oval office.

It's gut wrenching. And I admit that I actually voted for this guy...TWICE. I guess it's shame on me.
