Gary McCarthy has NO business being the mayor of anything. The city is a filthy mess. Half the people here don't shovel, forcing pedestrians into the street all winter long. There are so many derelict property it's not believable. Many, many properties for sale. I have been here 15 years and it has gotten WORSE, not better. Other than the downtown area, there has been no improvement. The casino is seen as the savior but that's a fantasy. Let's raise taxes and maybe ALL the working people will leave. Then Gary and the council will be left to pay all the taxes and license all the thousands of unlicensed dogs.

I, too, am concerned about what type of crime will accompany a casino in Schenectady. If we have to add more officers to the police force, it will eat up any benefit to the city from the casino. And I keep saying that the chronically unemployed in this city will not be the first to get jobs at a casino. People who handle other people's money usually need some type of job history to be hired. It's just amazing that we voted no and here we are, about to get a casino.

Interesting comments. I did vote against the expansion of casino gambling and I am still not really in favor. I also have concerns about traffic, alcohol, increased crime, and what will be done with the money that goes into the county, city and school coffers. Schenectady is a city that desperately needs to be CLEANED UP - it is filthy and the housing stock is falling apart in many areas. How will this be changed when the politicians here do not have the will to get hard things done? Also - as far as office space? how much are we talking about? We need small manufacturing type businesses. Start ups. Businsses that pay more that the minimum. We need better representation if any of this is to happen.

Typical Carl Falotico - when a judge issued an order that my neighbor could not own, live with or have a dog and he kept it - Carl told me I should be thankful the guy put up a fence. This was after the dog got out unleahsed at LEAST 20 times and attacked my dog and someone else's. Who would have agreed to this nonsense?? Great job Carl.

This is a disgrace if any of it is true. Boyland is SUCH a sleaze. This is what happens when OUR money is handed out wholesale with no checks on what happens. Calling it a witch hunt hardly makes me think that they are all being indicted for no reason.

So let me make sure this is clear - a private entity - including churches which pay no taxes -request police and the officers get OT on the taxpayers' nickel?? And then supposedly this is reimbursed? But it's being counted towards pensions? What a cluster bleep. And Wayne - amiss? Really? The only thing amiss is that you still have a job considering that you do nothing but hold press conferences.

Well, somewhere she has a substantial sum of money she stole - unless she spent it all already, she might be a flight risk. She's facing prison time. Of course I was trying to say she got special treatment in case anyone missed that.

So you can steal all that money and not have to post one cent of bail money??

Cynical beyond all belief. Phony.
