This community needs jobs and a lower tax rate. The casino would help both substantially. In my opinion, it's really that simple...

"TellCathySteve" I have no horse in this race but it's evident you do by your slant on the issue. To an outsider like me this sounds more like the same two people doing the job that have been for the last several years but at a cost savings (benefit savings) for the tax payer. Moreover, the person who would "running" the town would be an elected official who would be held accountable for his/her body of work in the position which seems like an improvement to me.

I see it as a cost savings to the tax payer and more accountability. Anything else seems like political postering to me.

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...
