The reporter should have identified the value of the sales tax exemption to GE- poor journalism!

It would be helpful to indicate in the story how many of these individuals chose to live in the City of Schenectady, share life in the city with residents, and share the tax burden we all endure! There is no way residents can approve of these continued overtime expenses and the lame apologetics again offered.

Read the NRA gun nuts propaganda above! Then remember that the majority of Americans agree with the Gazette and not are influenced by the gun lobby and their fear driven hacks!! Faulty data -faulty logic- same old crap!

The Adirondacks belong to all of the people of New York State not to a few local businessmen and their political buddies. Yes to wilderness! - no to "me and my profits." !

Same old partisan Republican garbage! Roger Hull "Independent" ? - what a sham!-- and he really agrees with this gang? Let's remember the mess Republicans left in Schenectady before they were voted out. Hull is the real liar-- and is clueless about life in our neighborhoods and the struggles of ordinary Schenectady residents. Let's all remember that both the Times Union and the Gazette both supported McCarthy based on an honest examination of the facts and not the specious claims of an unprincipled Hull/Republican alliance.

Both the Daily Gazette and the Times Union in detailed and thoughtful editorials have endorsed Mayor McCarthy for re-election.
No debate on that!

Roger Hull attempts to "Trump" McCarthy. He will make Schenectady neighborhoods great again! Grandiose nonsense not rooted in economic or political reality.The Roger Hull way--no Alliance party, no urban political experience, abundant ego-mania. No "neighborhood" now remains on Seward Place. It is a row of nicely rehabilitated off-campus student houses used by Union in lieu of on- campus student dorms. Where will Hull find the $100,000 per house he spent on Seward to rehab the rest of deteriorated city housing?" "Crack houses and stabbings"? --like Nelson Rockefeller did describing demolished downtown Albany neighborhoods Mr. Hull now falsely characterizes the neighborhood that existed on Seward Place before Union coverted it to dormitories. Are all needy neighborhoods in the city viewed in a similar way by Hull? Finally, not only are Mr Hull's many Seward properties off the tax rolls but Union College now retains housing income from students living there for its own use- money that had previously flowed off campus when students rented private (and taxed )housing in areas around the college.

It's time to examine the hospitals executive compensation packages and see if some cost cutting there would make it possible to meet the nurses needs. The 1% running healthcare seem to be out of touch with the daily lives of those they employ (and the well-being of their "customers"-patients) Shame on them for bullying the hard working nurses. Unions yes!!

Shame on our Senator who again votes for war (remember Irag) not diplomacy. He has capitulated to the fear-mongers and their irrational PACs rather than acting in the interest of all New Yorkers and the American people.What a disappointment. Let's hope all Democrats will remember this betrayal and prevent him from gaining Senate leadership should Democrats regain control of the Senate. The American people elected Obama in large measure because of his opposition to the war in Irag and support for diplomacy.
