Councilman Vince Riggi also noted that stripping is legal, but said police should not have hired them for a private party. “You know how that goes. It certainly can lead to some things,” he said.

Vince Riggi acting as a moral compass. Now I have heard it all...

I don't get the gerrymandering comments when Democrats out-number Republicans by several thousand voters in that district.

If you give a sworn statement to gov't officals and lie in it which obviously could create a hardship on another individual (a police officer who stands to be disciplined anywhere from suspension days, job termination to even arrest) why would the Gazette advocate for the law (making a false statement, etc) being ignored? What about the rights of the individual being lied about? Nevermind the huge waste of tax payer dollars associated with investigating a false complaint. Moreover, restitution to the tax payers should be part of the sentence if an individual is found guilty of this charge.

Wow, SchenectadyScott is just stuffed full of mis-information... Working Families Party controlled by the Firemen? Please do some research before you state obvious mistakes. And if I remember correctly, Brucker and King were not endorsed by the Conservative Party last year, Dukes and Tiberio were.

Yes, congrats to him for accepting all that pride money after turning his back on all of the Conservatives that he graciously turned his back on after accepting their endorsement. I'm sure he'll do wonderfully on Ballot line E...

@ajames--"the Chief brought that concept of directed patrol to the Department."

Directed patrol was first instituted in the City during the 1990's. Care to explain how he brought it to the City when he didn't become Chief until a decade later?

@ cfield---(SSB - accreditation, fleet management)
An Assistant Chief needs to be in charge of fleet management.... oh my.... You could put a chimp on minimum wage in charge of fleet management and still be in no worse of a position. And accredidation--- you can't be serious. Do you honestly believe he has anything to do with accredidation? Please... So that's how you justify a $120,000 salary plus another $50,000+ in benefits? Pathetic.

The second A/C---HR--- You don't believe there's a better way to handle HR issues then put a $200,000 assistant chief in charge of it? You wouldn't make it very long in the business world, that's for sure.
