Pricing, service improve at Rochester airport

Full story: Democrat & Chronicle

Not that long ago, the Rochester airport's passenger fares were so high, fliers routinely drove to Buffalo or Toronto just to begin their vacations.

Wow what a coincidence...nothing has been reported about an update on Cigargate, and here comes the D&C praising the airport on what a great job Dave is doing. Even includes lots of compliments from Maggie on how fantastic Dave is. ARE YOU FCKING KIDDING ME?!? I'm sick to my stomach over the politician owned local media.

Get in line. So is everybody else. I canceled the D&C after 27 years because it sucked so badly. Neighbors have done the same thing.

It is a dying newspaper, no longer worth paying for.

Who still pays for the newspaper?

Looks like the Italian Mob runs the newspaper as well as the airport and the county including Maggie. Nothing about Dave the thief. Its time for me to drop the D&C. Poor reporting. The pricing could be much lower at the airport. So much waste.

I like how Maggie says costs remained flat. Gee - major expenses are plowing and de-icing, which was way lower last year due to a mild winter. All other costs (including entertainment) went way up, so the overall costs were flat. And that's a good job???

You will see the 'spin' being all good.
Dave will keep his job and Cigar-gate will be put to bed.
This is the pattern and why these folks are still in power.
I'm confused on how these re-elections keep going against what the general voter sentiment is.

We will never get the real story, and I expect the entire incident will go away shortly. He will emerge unscathed, everything returns to normal. No accountability will ever be required to the public (even with the state review).

In a couple of weeks this will all be a footnote in County government history.

If she won't fire Dave, it's up to us to fire Maggie.

Did the Democrates even have a candidate for County Ex. in the last election?

It seems this appropriation of funds is no longer newsworthy issue (to the press), right or wrong.

Don't think he is an effective county employee, certainly not qualified to br a manager -- and his behavior toward employees is atrocious. That's a story.

I will not vote for Maggie. If she will not fire Dave I will not vote for her. She has proven to me over and over that she does not have the ability to to what is right and manage people but she is controlled by others.

Soon the D&C will be a Sunday paper only. They only report the old news that was on TV yesterday. They could be successful if they stayed on top of Dave Demelio and other hot topics but they have no balls and thus will be gone as a daily paper in a few years. People will not waste there money for old news with no in depth reporting. The Times Union is long gone and so will the D&C be gone. Its the reporting stupid.

If I stole money from my job at Xerox, I would be fired and put in jail. The crooks that work in government can do anything and it is covered up? We vote these people in office to represent us and they screw us. I was once told that when 50% of the people in a company, country, county, business are corrupt it will collapse and fail. We are there. The USA is on the verge of financial collapse. All because of corruption.

The problem is that they don't see it as corruption. They are being investigated for 'just doing their jobs' which includes entertainment expenses.
Like the airport authority said:'No crime was committed here'.
It's simply arrogance. Golden boys get like that.

Dave is an a-hole if you ask his emloyees. And is Maggie corrupt or stupid? Its one or the other. Dave is just an arrogant jerk that was due to be exposed sooner or later. Who wouldve guessed no one would even care when he did such an awesome job at failing. Berkely Breene, where are you???

No because Duffy claimed he wasn't looking for a higher office. LMFAO
But it was really cause he didn't want a pay cut.
So I would guess his new job must pay more.

The D&C sucks. I agree they could be original and do some real investigative journalism, but it sure almost looks like Maggie had her political donors call up the paper and threaten to cancel ad space unless they agreed to run a story boasting how awesome the airport is being run. That in itself is newsworthy. Can't ANY news channels see through all the BS?

I gave up the D&C years ago because they sucked then as much as they suck now and will always suck worse than a Hoover Vacuum cleaner..
I ain't voting for any incumbents ever again as I voted against all of them last election.. Didn't doi any good when certain parties have no one to run against anyone elkse and the newspapers try and do control the people that read the "News" that isn't fit to print and is MOSTLY an opinion of the news paper that is printing it. NO FACTS at all!
