Remington Gone Within 10 Years

Remington Gone Within 10 Years

Let's be honest. The primary cause Remington is moving jobs outside New York State is because the cost of doing business here is too much. The Safe Act is the icing on the cake. It is not the cause of the departure, just the last straw. They have had enough.

Let's also be honest about another thing. My sense is Remington will probably move most, if not all, of their jobs located in Ilion to a location outside the state within probably a decade, maybe less. Herkimer, Oneida, Otsego and other counties will suffer devastating economic effects. And our governor and state legislators could care less. That's right. I know most of you do not believe it, but guess what? It is true.

Cuomo will not acknowledge Remington's decision. Most of the area's state legislators are ignoring it as well. They are running from it. The leadership of their political parties are responsible for this, and this shows they have little or no influence with them. All they care about is their own careers, salaries and pensions. They are running from the Remington decision, and we will re-elect all of them in the fall.

We have no one to blame but ourselves.
