Cfield it's politics and this country is run on money and only money. Politicians don't care about the public only when it comes time for votes. So that's why they don't care about eliminating those positions because they'd be saving money.

... But city counsel, the police department and fire department get paid far too much when they work above and beyond their 40hr work week! How is there room in the constrained budget for a salary increase, for a 40hr a week position? This city is a joke and I'm sad to pay taxes here!

Sheriff Dagostino was a Rotterdam Police Officer. Way to get your facts right Kathleen.

Private sector employees are more likely to struggle in retirement because they can't save enough money while they are working to support them in retirement. They can't save enough money because the cost of living is outrageously high not only in NY but nationally as well. Taxes continue to soar higher and higher. Why, you might ask ? Simple, because as stated previously above, the working class as to work harder for those who choose not to work, like the majority of those who embody the city of Schenectady. Tax collecting, system sucking career criminals who are constantly breeding more career criminals to replace them when they go to jail. Its a viscous cycle that is supported by those on the left, who neither truly care about the person they contend they are trying to help, nor the welfare of society as whole. It's more important to them to stay in power.
Now, if all these people who suck the system, decided that they wanted to work, and no longer relied on government welfare, the less the government would spend on handouts, and it would be less likely the taxes would need to be raised. Lower taxes, equals more money in private sector employee's pockets, intern helping them save for retirement.

Shocker gazette trying to blame the police. This paper is such a joke, they insult the city where located and police who protect them. I which they shut down already and some one good with real reporters steps in, a lot of excellent story's out there.

Reported crime may be down statistically, but what about the unreported crime ? I would say the simple solution to determine whether or not a city is prospering or in a downward spiral, is to drive through the neighborhoods within the city. If you see the residents hanging out at the corner store, or on their front porch (during business hours), with the grass not cut, garbage piled in their front yard, or if they are walking in the middle of the road, or if you see the streets littered with garbage from the corner store, that chances are, the city is not exactly prospering. ie Schenectady. Now on the other hand, if you drive through a neighborhood and don't see people who are of working age, hanging out on their front porch during the middle of the day, and their grass is cut, and they have no garbage piled or thrown about, than chances are those people are at work, and the city is prospering. Ie: Saratoga Springs. This is all pretty much common sense if you think about it. So in a nut shell, reported crime may be down a little in Schenectady, but overall, the city is spiraling down the toilet, and Kathleen Moore is more worried about Firefighters and Cops pensions. Makes sense.

Wow, I feel like I am living in fairytale town USA. Apparently it is acceptable to write stories on drug dealing, gun toting, career criminals who flaunt their life style in front of a reporter? This is unbelievable, just when I thought the Gazette couldn't get any worse, they sink to an new low, by placing gang members on a pedestal for everyone to look up to, and feel sorry for. Disgusting! When you live by the sword, you die by the sword.

Ok ok listen up you are worried about police and fire pensions but yet you give out help to pretty much 2 parts of the city we all know where that is hint "DSS", and SSI, we should be worried about our tax dollars going to people that don't deserve money but all you blind politicians can't see that the police department is understaffed horably and you want to take the overtime away pathetic. So what happenes when a police officer is killed, that's right nothing because you don't care about protection your're just worried about money. Oh and to the Schenectady politicians I hope they read this, these people are bleeding out now all over the city and you are pushing out your good "tax payers" hint people that work for a living. shame on you schenectady.
