A loss of @7000 jobs? That is like he population of Lakewood and Busti for a comparison. What is that as a percentage of the County?

How can a serious candidate not mention 40 towns, villages, cities and school districts in a county of 130K people? Are we ever going to get people with the - gumption - to challenge the fiefdoms that hold us back to the horse and buggy days? We can be relatively proactive and challenge these structures and just MAYBE history will treat us kindly. Unfortunately it seems like we will wait until these entities go bankrupt and the State forces some sensible consolidation. Would you move your company to a place stuck in the 1800's when lack of transportation facilitated the need to have all these different towns, villages and school districts. No water - that's minor compared to the real problems.I can't vote for someone who ignores this major problem.

If the tax structure is out of control and one of the highest rates in the country what do you think companies will do? It's a easy answer, either move or shut down but not come to NYS. Why is the property taxes on a 200k house less in Colorado then my 35k house in Celoron. Easy answer to much government waste. Until taxes are competitive jobs will continue to leave.

I'm a broken record but the clear problem here is the workforce...there are few people here with skills and worse, few with a work ethic. I agree that the quality of life is very good here, but the image is not good. The question to ask is, why would a company locate or invest here?
