DSIC must do more for small businesses, not just Proctors Reading the Nov. 28 article about the dispute between the Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corp. and local merchants, I came to the following conclusion: DSIC Executive Director Jim Salengo’s main talent seems to be making excuses. Nowhere in the article does Salengo dispute the complaints of the Jay Street merchants and Kat Bird Shop owner. He speaks of plans for 2013, but doesn’t seem to want ...

But it should be put front and center before primaries- which candidates will be double dipping. We need legislative reform to ban the practice- and define retirement. I also read that Troy Mayor just appointed a retired police officer to new police commissioner job and that person will be receiving $30K which is the max a person can recieve while collecting a pension to work for the City- So, Im not clear as to why Troy would have at least this restriction and not the State Legislature- .

John Angilla- The DSIC is a total waste of time and money. The few functions the DSIC attempts it fails at miserably. Good point about Arts Night where they total dropped the ball. Another example was the disgusting tree grate thefts. DSIC employees were stealing City tree gates while at work. Mr Salengo actually defended them and refused to fire them. Mayor McCarthy keeps stacking the board with Democratic incompetents. The City Council must stop wasting tax dollars and business owners fees on this hog wash. Let business owners advertise and decorate their own store fronts without Mr Salengo.

Simple answer to the poor management Schenectady suffers from:
Elect people who are not owned by the unions.
Vince Riggie is the best city councilman we have and he is shut out from all essential meetings and agenda by the Democrats and current Mayor.
'Good Grief' Charley Brown!
Fire these incompetants next election.
