Schenectady mayor: Pay up traffic tickets

Text Size: A | A

If you haven’t paid your traffic tickets, now might be an excellent time to do so. Mayor Gary McCarthy plans to dramatically increase enforcement of the tickets. He told the City Council that he plans to do more than withhold registrations or offer an amnesty program. He wants “aggressive” efforts — which could include booting cars.

Amortizing current pension costs is simply kicking the can down the road, which doesn't fix the problem, it only makes it worse later.

During last year's election, McCarthy refused to signi n a timely manner the authorizations required for his potential opponents to collect petition signatures. To subvert the authority given to an elected official by the electorate to undermine the public's choice in an election is reprehensible. What else do you need to know about the mayor, and his ego?

This is such typical nonsense. If all these people owe all this money in tickets - get out there and collect it. Why is it a topic for discussion?? boots are available - I've seen them. If the city needs the money (and it clearly does) JUST GO GET IT.

Yeah...then we can get into the Used Car business...like we are doing with all the abandoned houses....squeezing blood from a stone....They have to stop spending money we do not have and will never have..instead of crying that the State and Feds are not giving us our share..from our own pockets...The Mayor just follows his boss....Capo/Boss Gardener, his mouthpiece Gary Hughes...then we have three council members who are on the Government Mammary Gland..through Pension, Pay and Benefits..through there work be it subsidized or directly..Gary McCarthy, Denise Brucker, Peggy King, Marion Porterfield, and Leeza Perazo...They should all recuse themselves...it is all in Their Best interest...not the people they serve...They refused to listen to The People, Fired Budget Analyst Jason Cuthbert and councilmen Riggi and Erickson.
