When the County Leg. blasted through the state property tax cap and henceforth earning the ire of the property owners and the governor, I objected. I was taken aside by multiple County Leg. and told that they were forced to do this for the "poor"! How do you explain this? The residents of Hamilton Hill have to wakeup and know that is simply paving the way for a first phase of a 9 million dollar low income housing project across the street from Carver. It is the first step in gutting Kids Corridor on Craig. First Carver and then the Boys and Girls Club.

This is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. You just can not send innocent unarmed people into an area where fools have guns, even a BB gun. An investigation needs to be conducted. Hamilton Hill hasn't had the blue U. S. Postal Boxes for years. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who even knows why they were removed in the first place. All I know is if I need to mail a letter or package, I have to drive to the post office or I could go to Mont Pleasant, Central State Street, or downtown. I guess I could go any where else in the city of Schenectady and mail a letter except the neighborhood that I live in.

It truly boggles the mind, having worked in Construction, that any of this could be "easy"! This is a clear sign that government should get out of the way and let the private sector handle these projects. Each time agencies get involved it is ripe for disaster.

Yes scrap the tests and issue pay checks based on last years graduation rates. So 50 per cent Grads 50 per cent pay.

Here is a bulletin!
Please do not waive a gun(working or not working) in an urban setting with bystanders on a busy street and chance a call to the SPD.
In addition please do not make statments you do not really intend to fulfill.
Like," I will shoot anyone that comes near me!" It causes Law Enforcement to active negatively, regardless of your age, race, ethnicity or creed.
Thirdly, if ordered by a uniformed officier(even just one) to halt, please do.
If you do not everything that comes after is on you!
These are not personal things, just facts.
This is all part of a public education piece, that was supposed to have been conducted by the Civilian Police Review Board. The members somehow, never got to it. Instead, valuable time was spent on goofy stuff like: should unpaid married couples be allowed to serve on the Board, even though they are highly qualified and approved by the Mayor and City Council.
Members of the NAACP and the community they represent, should take out there frustration, which I share, on the City Council. They wasted several years, not putting enough focus on an effective Civilian Review Board.

Yes it important to have patience our Governor has big things on his plate!
Big Press Conferences
Sadly it is long journey for our Democratic leadership to travel all the way to Albany to talk to him.
Families will just have to wait.

Thanks Art! The " Something's rotten in Denmark" smell gets worse when you factor in the fact that the grant is very similar to the amount paid the CC woman as the site co-ordinator of the failed "Weed & Seed" DOJ program. One has to wonder since the Feds begged her to get paperwork in on time, how this application made a deadline. It smells worse for the Mayor since a fund raiser was held at this location for him.
The big picture is, how many of these grants are let out, particularly by CLT, whose sphere has shifted to the North End. Are there family members at HUD or Freddiemac? How do we always seem to have unvetted persons appointed to positions when so many qualified persons are looking for work in the "Community"? Many questions.
On the Plannining Commission members recuse themselves when there is even the possility of future personal gain, the same standard should apply to CC and salaried staff.

What do you give a city with way too much low income housing?
More low income housing!
We have yet another new project on Hamilton Hill.
