Herkimer County Petition

As a New York State taxpayer, you'll be investing $300 million into an Oneida County hospital in the Utica area. Politicians force investment into downtown, but Taxpayers, property and business owners fight back. State investment does more for regional healthcare at St. Luke's and bulldozing downtown is foolish urban renewal...

November 12, 2017 - Residents are Upset, Even Angry; "Why can't we vote on this issue?", "Why must we pay for a private company's parking garage?", "How can this happen without a vote by those having to pay for it?", and "Taxpayers are supplying the $300M!"

These questions and statements seem fair. After all the Utica Mayor has said he'd close streets and provide city-owned property, but are these his decisions alone? What voice do taxpayers and residents have?

Herkimer County

The county's business and budget are headed by the County Executive and these Twenty-three Legislators. We have a dedicated page here for the executive, #NoHospitalDowntown is watching

City of Utica

Above these two officials (who seem not to care about what residents think), is our Governor, Andrew M Cuomo. He has not told us where he stands directly, but his budget extender deal cheered $300M for a Downtown Hospital in great detail...
