Ray Jadwick is the proprietor of The Utica Custom Shirt Company, in Downtown Utica. Ray's background and experiences are varied, but suffice to say he's an exceptional artist and illustrator, a serious democrat, and fully opposed to the Downtown Hospital Concept.
We were told Ray started out liking the idea of a new downtown hospital. From his amazing work and views below, something certainly changed. We note that Facebook states Ray's been a member of #NoHospitalDowntown since November 24, 2017, meaning it took a year and three months, but we're supper lucky Ray's here!
A Democrat in @CityofUtica is VERY upset w/ @ABrindisiNY!

Seeking to avenge the residents of Oneida County's / @CityofUtica's #healthcare, we plan to sweep these guys off their stage. Architects, or just go-alongs?

Really, you folks need to stop w/ the astroturfing... an inner-city hospital district w/ 80,000 ER visits, 3,000+ parked cars, is NOT a proper redevelopment concept. Until then we'll keep embarrassing your #mvhshealthcast foolishness ... https://t.co/2IqBice5oU pic.twitter.com/CKQ6U02viP— #NoHospitalDowntown (@NoHospitalDwtn) July 13, 2018

To @ABrindisiNY the Downtown @CityofUtica @MVHealthSystem hospital proposal hasn't been sea-worthy since conceived.

Here's the bottom line in this entire downtown hospital proposal mess: @ABrindisiNY is responsible for it and Anthony Brindisi must clean it up. The sooner, the better for EVERYONE!. Time for him to man-up and move on. pic.twitter.com/EVyX9dFG9l— #NoHospitalDowntown (@NoHospitalDwtn) June 29, 2018

Out on his campaign trail @ABrindisiNY @BrindisiNY22 is denying ownership of the @MVHealthSystem downtown @CityofUtica hospital concept!

#NoHospitalDowntown is suspect of “political party machinery”.

The board of @MVHealthSystem has shown zero respect for public input in siting a new Oneida County. How soon after bulldozing downtown @CityofUtica would then they abandon this new facility? pic.twitter.com/a0jVFIYJm7— #NoHospitalDowntown (@NoHospitalDwtn) May 15, 2018

Funny thing how the @MVHealthSystem rendering of the massive tax-exempt downtown @CityofUtica hospital concept prominently features trees, not the 20 acres of desolate parking!
