Well clue, apparently YOU do but you still don't get it. You see, I'm only responsible for what I say, not what you understand.

How did king get elected the first...then a second time? It's very clear from the beginning that he knew or knows nothing regarding the position he was elected to. Heck, if I knew it was that easy to become the mayor of Gloversville, I should of tried it myself, however, I had to work a real job to support my family. King couldn't make it at Lexington, was a soccer coach, and must do a great job at Wal Mart. Yep, let's elect him to office. Really, the lawyer is the mayor of the city. King can't tie his own shoes without him. Everybody seems to love him on his Facebook thing though. Good luck to the citizens of Gloversville.

Children ? Play nice ? I guess you've got that right but direct it to the bully in the mayor's office.He is the one not "playing nice". His childish behavior and tantrums are getting beyond ridiculous. If only he would grow up and realize that he alone does not run the city.

John, one bit of advice; I can't speak for anyone else but I play to win, not to be 'nice'. Nice is for afternoon tea and biscuits.

Adkkev, I don't know, neither of us live there. What I do know is both Obama and Putin have violated the 1994 Budapest Agreement with, apparently, no complaints from the rest of the World. My point, as I stated, is now our local politicians see the ripples in the water and are taking advantage of Citizen apathy. Now that that attitude is finally being noticed it's become too late to complain and time to ACT. Just as G'ville needs to act.

Okay children let’s all play nice! Funny thing is someone like the mayor as he was re-elected to a second term! Either his opponent was much worse or people like what he is doing...hmmmmmm This childish behavior has to stop if they think they can lure big business to this area. I think the only road that doesn't have a pothole is the road to Wally World. Remember Gloversville will be saved once the super duper center was built! I really hope my powerball ticket won!

My cat would make a better mayor, at least he acts in the best interest of others and not just himself, he shares, he's thoughtful and courteous... Probably could manage a cuter wife too

And that Spritz is exactly correct. He is guilty of abuse of power and it has only grown worse. He seems to feel, as apparently does the city attorney, that he has the power to constantly issue "Mayoral Directives" to suit whatever itch he decides to scratch.

He is woefully lacking in understanding that he is NOT to legislate. That is the duty of the common council and his posturing is only to serve his own ego.

@AgainstFraud....****mon council meetings are the last Tuesday of the month @ 6PM in the court chambers at city hall. That is when the public are allowed to speak. If you go to the city's website, you can see when the work sessions are held. No public speaking at those.

There is no way to get rid of the miscreant mayor because there is no recall of local officials in NYS unless he is convicted of a felony,or an egregious ethics violation, and can only be removed by the Governor.

Perhaps a petition is in order demanding he resign and sent to the Governor.

I do not know when the school board meets, perhaps you can call the Superintendent's office for that information.

I too have had it with this mayor. He needs to go and so does the inept city attorney.

It seems whenever there is another article relating to the mayor, everyone goes off on matters unrelated to the article itself. In this instance there are remarks re:road conditions, how he got elected,etc.. the list goes on. I dislike this mayor & city attorney as much as all of you but this is about ego exceeding the power of office. It's about a city attorney that is unskilled in municipal law. It's about a city held hostage by a few elected & appointed officials unwilling to give that proverbial inch. You cannot expect to take people from rather, shall i say,questionable backgrounds, put them in positions of power and not have the chaos we now see.

The king/mayor does not care what you people think even though you pay his salary. He cares not for the city, nor the charter he swore to uphold. What he does care about is getting his picture in the paper, trying to make your elected officials look like incompetent buffoons egged on by his cohorts Robinson and Casale. Casale by the way is derelict in his duty as city attorney by not protecting the city, but instead is protecting the mayor. Sad that he knows not what he knows not. Your power trips have begun to be tiresome Dayton.

Next thing you know he will try taking the City debit card like he did before he was kicked off the board of the Boys and Girls club.
