Yah, it's the fake democrat mayors like duffy and richards that is really killing rochester.

They should make a rule that once a republican your always a republican and you can't change just to get a job.

Rochester and NY are dead already from high taxes and no jobs. RIT and UofR students are out of here after graduation, few stay. Blacks now rule the streets in gangs and jobs are low paying. Lots of Retirees from the last generation of Kodak, B&L, GM and Xerox that still have large pensions and SS spend money here. Once they pass on its over. The next generation will have no pensions, no home equity and no money in the bank and most likely no SS. Rochester is now only surviving on the old generation and the welfare recipients. They keep Rochester flying for now.

Richards has nothing to worry about. He sold RG&E and got 10 million in his pocket. The city is dying fast and I see nothing being done.

Next he will sell Rochester and stick another 10 million in his pocket.

Positive note a casino will save the city. But it may take years to get one here and we do not have that long to waite.

Can't see the big lost,Kodak hasn't paid property tax on some of it's buildings for years.Maybe the city can sell the bulidings after Kodak leaves and get some of the back taxes they are due.Sounds like a plan to me.

Surely the big fat cat with the 10 million from RG&E will survive it.

Richards need to go retire some place with his millions. Get the hell out of the way and let someone run the city who cares.

I highly recommend Florida. No state income tax, much lower property taxes and great weather..........

It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart
kept trying hard to mend
the pieces of my broken heart
and I spent oh so many nights
just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
Now I hold my head up high
and you see me
somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person
still in love with you
and so you felt like dropping in
and just expect me to be free
now I'm saving all my loving
for someone who's loving me

It's the ghetto trash and all the daily shootings, stabbings, robberies, etc...
The local police are doing nothing to stop it. It has been going on & on like this for years with no change.
If anything it's gotten worse.
