Now I can't wait to move out of this city of course the folks I did vote for did not win. This is why I'm so sick of voting especially in this state it's always blue and always will be blue never red. But Saratoga county is where to be at folks and that's where I'll be. Good luck blue schenectady, I feel bad for the police department always getting hammered on for no reason, when there their to back us up schenectady blue is there to take them down.

Did you ever stop to think that its not Obama Care and the greed that so many of these doctors feel the need to fill? that is not true the doctor has the right and the discretion to do as he or she sees fit in any exam setting, however they would only be able to bill you for one visit so the answer is clear as clear can be. If he told you to reschedule the visits or make multiple visits he was only doing so to further line his pockets with not only your money but that of the insurance companies, and in turn my money as rates will continue to rise do to practices such as this. Time for a new doctor!

These are the least of this city's problems. Where cutting overtime for a police force already depleted, sounds like a good idea to most. These officers tackle the worse of the worse in the city. Under men and under appreciated, day work long hours to keep the city safe. All doing it for the love of community and justice, yet most can't even afford to live in the city they work in. High taxes, a leadership, that doesn't go to bat for them, and the local media(k.moore) always looking for ways to stick it to them. Not mentioning or recognizing the great work done everyday. If this city is going to continue bringing in all these social institutions in and at the same time, handicapping officers who are barely making ends meet, "I know I'm in the private sector and make much more, no stress and live out the city " now you want to complain about overtime, this city has a sad future, where crime will increase and good officers will leave to appreciating departments whom by the way just looking at neighboring towns and villages all pay more. It makes sense the city is getting bigger and Schenectady logic says lets decrease police force, and complain about police overtime. Back to article mental health issues, drugs, kids having kids you know who deals with this 24/ 7 you guessed it the police.. Schenectady get your act together you use to be the "electric city" now your covered in darkness. If you appreciate what police do for you, write a letter, call the mayor, for Gods sakes tell a friend...

Mezz3131- Sounds like someone is looking to the future ? You should probably add yourself to the list of "bad leaders" as you live in a very big glass house.

hey chuckd...if you only knew the extreme high call volume and how low staffing is on the streets compared to other city's. these cops don't have the time to do walking beats and other things....they go none stop from call to call 24/7. i would suggest buying a 100 dollar police scanner and listen to it for one week and you will understand. also schenectady has gone from the police running the city animals to the animals running the police dept. these cops are wired for sound and video and God forbid they say something to a citizen to gain control of a scene the animal then calls the chief's office and 9.5 out of 10 times the cops will oil the squeeky wheel instead of backing there own cops. how do i know i was an employee there and know how bad it is!!! the higher ups in SPD need to let the cops retake control of sch'dy but i think it is to far gone.

Here we have a case where old school rules need to come in hand like using the ruler, the general public does not realize how bad these inner city kids are because they 9 times out of 10 believe they're like every other kid, they don't realize they have no future and they set the road they already want at a young age, I don't even feel bad for the city of Schenectady because they let it happen, you couldn't pay me to move in that city I would never EVER send my kids to that school system. I however do feel bad for the Schenectady police department when it comes to things like this I'm sure they are so restricted on what they can do, I say it's time to change the laws with these craze juveniles. Hey Mr. Carney I feel it's time you and those judges should check out what your police officers do on a daily basses with these kids on the streets , and then maybe that will open up your eyes. Sorry Schenectady but I would never move there

I would wish you luck, but in that neighborhood no one cares about keeping it clean. You have multiple people that are on SSI and DSS that just live on our hard earn money standing out their eating their fried chicken not carrying if their is a garbage can or not that's the least of their worries. What needs to be done is NO LOITERING enforced but the city seems to put and end to that and now here you are trying to make it look nice. Ms. Porterfield by making it look nice you need to be stricter with these business that let the mess hang there. I'm a resident in this city and drive by there from time to time and it seems like always a bunch of kids, and seems like the police get called all the time for these kids and this area when will something be done?

I have wrote theses clowns about taxes and they didn't even have the decency to respond. We are taxed on home heating fuel at 4%, while other counties do not tax this need. We are also taxed an additional $20 usage fee that is attached to your vehicle registration that no one else pays. Last year I made the mistake of buying pellets in Schenectady county and paid tax on them. I now shop in Saratgoa county. Vote every one of these Demarcates out!!
