Councilman-elect John Mootoveren knowingly lied to the voting public and should not be allowed to take office. What he did is no different then lying on a job application and should be treated as such. I believe the Democratic Party that backed him were well aware his work status and encouraged him to remain silent on the issue. How is a person like this to be believed, he has shown that he is willing to deceive the public for his own personal gains. As a life-long resident of Schenectady, I am absolutely disgusted with Mr. Mootooveren's actions.

I am Italian and I do not have a problem with this individual referring to himself as a "Wondering Dago", not a term I would use , but that is his choice. People have become too politically correct today, it seems they look for reasons to be "offended". If you do not like the term he chose to call his business, don't do business with him, money speaks louder than words.

I have to agree with grant18, post their names an photos. Every year the local municipalities post the names, address and amounts owed for properties that the taxes have not been paid on, why not state tax.

"However, the government obtained a new indictment in May 2012, in which it alleged that $300,000 in payments to Bruno from businessman Jared Abbruzzese between 2004 and 2006 -- the charges on which he was convicted in the first trial -- constituted a bribe or kickback".
83 or not, he committed a crime, he needs to be held accountable just as any other person in the State Of New York would be. If not, it will be business as usual in Albany.

I have to agree with Santino, why would someone only spend 2 years in prison for robbery? Up to 25 years in prison for what he did? It should be at least 25 years. It is obvious that people like this have no regard for other people or society, the victim of this heinous crime has to live with the trauma the rest of her life.

Best wishes to the Corrections Officer and his family. What really bothers me about this attack is, the inmate is already serving a life sentence for second-degree murder, and now faces charges of attempted murder. What could he get as a sentence, life? Can he be placed in solitary confinement for the rest of his life or will that be seen as cruel and unusual punishment? My hats off to the men and women who have to deal with these type of people every day, it takes a special person.

Mr. Silver needs to resign as well. He claims he acted in the interest of the victims, but it appears he had other reasons to give away our tax money.

This law has more to do with the Governor adding to his resume than to deal with the atrocities that are taking place in our country. How would this law had stopped the last shooting? The guns used were purchased legally, the mother of the shooter owned them. It was obvious that he had some serious mental problems, which I am sure his family was aware of, but still he had access to the weapons. It seems a waste of time to me to enact law after law, when the laws we have now are not being enforced or if they are enforced, the courts works some kind of deal with the criminal. The only ones that will abide by these new law are the law abiding citizens, the criminal element will not care, look at our drug law, we know they work, there are no drugs in New York.

I don't know how the democrats on the city council can live with themselves. It is so obvious to the people of Schenectady what is going on and why. Brucker, Perazzo, Porterfield,King and Erickson, could care less. They have their own agenda that does not include what is right for the tax payers. It make me sick to think that people who do not live in the city have so much influence on our elected official through their unions, shame on the city council. Mr. Bennet is an asset to the city and I for one support him.
