I thought that Stratton was the worse Mayor Schenectady ever had until King Gary stole the election, he, like Stratton have no idea what it means to invest in the safety and maintenance of the city, their whole liberal mindset is to cut and decimate the jobs of those that keep the city running, IE; police and maintenance.

He, like Stratton have not figured out that quality of life will increase the tax base while cutting things like police and maintenance will only add to the cost of the city in more crime, lower tax revenues due to homeowners leaving and business going to a safer and cleaner more prosperous area. Rudy Guiliani knew this and was able to turn around NYC, but then again Guiliani was a Republican.
