I guess it doesn't bother any of the mayor's Fan Club that he has been caught lying again.The comments defending him on his FB page are laughable especially since half of them don't even live here and it isn't their tax money going for his "scenic drives" around the county. Hope the voters boot him out in November.

Why would anybody believe a word this man says? He has been proven a liar once again. Some days ago he told WENT that he drove the city SUV to Latham to get a business to move to Gloversville. Today he admits to working at that business for 6 months. Photos were taken by former Fire Chief Doug Edwards who followed him there several times, and were put up on Jack Kinzie's TV show. So who is the liar ? You taxpayers paid for that and plenty more unauthorized trips. He lies.

Just one more reason NOT to live in a city. Excessive taxes and nothing in return but more laws and regulations.

The question to ask any candidate is "How are you going to lower taxes?" Just stating so is superficial. CEOs and Managers who come to this area bringing new businesses because of the tax breaks soon learn when they buy property, there are no tax breaks here.

There is absolutely no reason to buy a house in the City of Gloversville, even if taxes are lowered.
