* * * ALERT: New Online Petition: Support A New MVHS Hospital At St. Luke's Campus! * * *
November 12, 2017 - Residents are 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?
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 Anthony J Picente Jr
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...
