Take a look at the choices.---Roefaro --a disaster---Palmieri--not to be trusted as he goes administration to adninistration with a job----Cardillo--a loser who left his wife for his secretary---Vescera --an absentee council person who won by one vote against a Bosnian in an italian district--Tanoury--could not even beat Hendricks---Julian --a reject whose admisistration was full of lawsuits and raised taxes every year as well as left office with a broken family.We need someone with experience and moral integrity.

what utica does is take the people with below average iqs-very little or no formal education--the street knowledge of a protected mommas boy-
people who are professional ass kissers--no real political knowledge other than utica voters have low standards--and both sides run them against each other--
no matter who gets in the deals contrary to uticas interests--have already been made.

agree with most of your arguments, but men leave their wives every day, as do women leave their husbands....what does that have to do with the price of eggs

Out of the entire population of Utica this is the 5-6 best names they can come up with for mayor? Do any of these guys have at least a 4-year degree, let alone hold down a real job for more than 2 years? One guy is even driving his daughter's SUV around town because he doesn't even have a car of his own. Tell me this is just a bad dream.

What is wrong with having a Bosnian for a Mayor? I would like to know what your objections could be.
The majority of Bosnians are smart, hard working, know how to get the full value out of a dollar and have no political garbage to bring to City Hall. In addition, most have overcome extreme emotional losses in their native country and are now survivors of what most of us could never have done ourselves.
A woman for a Mayor? Interesting - who comes to mind that would be strong enough to resist all the political pay backs and have nothing in her background that the old political machine wouldn't bring up to use against her?
Utica has to many minorities to have a Bosnian mayor. After all it was voted moste prejudice nation by the UN just last year.

we definately need another ruffie to run things.These young idiots who thought they would take the city to the young ideas and critized ruffie now really see that they dont know what they were doing. Things started going downhill when the lapolla administration took over and hailed itself as a new young idea, with the blessing from the OD paper ,he got elected term after term and the city slowly went down the crapper.If you dont believe me just look back at the history of utica from older paper clippings of the 70s 80s .
