MR Mooody- Regardless of Democrat or Republican, the fact of the matter is that the middle and lower classes in this country pay 99% of the taxes.I am not speaking of income taxes that only comprises a small percentage of the taxes collected in this country.
Are you aware of the hundreds of hidden taxes paid by the 95% of the nations middle and lower classes that obviously you're no aware of.So remember it does'nt matter which party is in charge the end result is always the same.

Jim Hamilton and the leaders of Rotterdam, what a joke! Hamilton is the chief of the towns secret police! He should be run out in a rail with the other corrupt cops, Jasenski, Calder, and Buffardi!

All though not clear of the facts. Why would the taxpayers of Charlton and not the architectual firm of Vosburgh be liable. Town of Charlton clearly must pursue damages from Vosburgh!!

Ya can't cover 12 players with only 11 on your team! They won because they had an ineligible receiver on the field! Keep your heads high, you lost because you didn't cheat!

The trouble with The Daily Gazette Editorials -
For a good example of what’s wrong with this article, compare the actual language of the PERB decision ( to the slanted view of what is written here.

Example - Half Truths:
Editor: "The arbitrators are required to look at compensation patterns among “comparable” jurisdictions. One would think that would mean similar-sized municipalities with similar crime numbers, etc. But in most cases, they simply look at what other police and firefighters in the area get (so one lucrative contract leads to another). That’s what they did with Scotia, comparing its cops to those in the city of Schenectady and others in Schenectady County.

PERB: (paraphrased) Glenville is a direct comparison and although Niskayuna and Rotterdam are not directly comparble, they should be given limited weight due to crime statistics per officer. City of Schenectady absolutely not a comparable. The village of Hudson Falls shares common characteristics with the village of Scotia and should be given some consideration as a comparable.

The ability to pay is also outlined in the award and is based on economist review of the town's finances. Feel free read the PERB decision yourself and realize that these articles tell a slanted view of the truth.

I'm not here to argue about the award given the the PBA in the arbitration, just to point out that the Gazette is unable or unwilling to report the news in an accurate and objective manner, even when the award in which they reference is readily available online for fact checking.

wrong, wrong, wrong. if you own a building you MUST pay taxes, everyone else has to. for the city to pay for the demo of the old dss building is crazy. is galesi going to pay back the money after they are paid for the building or start collecting rent ??? very bad decision making on the city's part. make the owners pay for their own buildings. can i stop paying my taxes with no repercusions?? doubt it. galesi should be paying taxes on a building they own and bringing it up to code ON THEIR OWN, just like city residents have to. different rules for different people is why poeple leave this city instead of moving into it.
