Rome, NY Sucks

But At Least We're Not Utica

Fight Club: Mayoral Edition

It appears the decades old battle between Rome and Utica extends to a State Senate race. Former Rome mayor Joe Griffo and former Ed Hanna waterboy Tim Julian will battle it out for the least influential position in Albany.

This pretty much cements the idea that government is a big sucking hole. Whoever becomes state senator gets to run for Congress in 20 years. Julian is trying to jump the mayor-county exec-state senator line, while Griffo is picking up a wife to nail down the seat. My prediction for the winner of this contest? Michael Arcuri.

    Mike Arcuri - For Senate? Funny I heard that rumor too! Now THAT would be INTERESTING.

    A lot of people thought the same about Queen Hillary... And here she is doing great things for the state, like securing jobs at Griffiss, etc... hehe

    We really need tighter restrictions on who we let into this state, let alone RUN FOR OFFICE!
