We now have it confirmed that Commissioner of Public Works Anthony "Skip" Scirocco discussed after the budget meeting last night the possible sale of the National Historic Landmark Canfield Casino in Congress Park. The conversation took place in the beautiful ballroom of the very building he wants to sell. Scirocco proposed the City can no longer afford the historic site and symbol of the City and wants to sell it to the highest bidder.
As Scirocco said ‘the City Unions didn’t elect me to cut their jobs.”
This is just the latest in a long string of harebrained and half-assed proposals from the Commissioner. Scirocco the building is the very heart and soul of Saratoga Springs, the thought that you would sell it to maintain the lifestyles of your Union thugs in the manner they have been accustomed, should be grounds for your removal from the Council.
I also have it confirmed that you wish to buy a paving machine for your Department out of CHIPS funds, Funds that should be used to fix potholes and repave streets. All so you can have a 70 k new toy that your men can’t operate or maintain or store. 70k for a highly specialized machine that is used less than 14 days a year. Our current lease agreement that includes the skilled operator is cost effective. Again I must wonder “what are you smoking in the mancave?”
Are you trying to punish your neighbors and friends for daring to cut your budget?
And thanks to Kyle about the heads up about BARBARA LOMBARDO being the new cheerleader for Charter Change.Why am I not surprised? They were after all the people who put Anthony "Skip" Scirocco in office. And as far as an INDEPENDENT LOCAL COMMITTEE . Yea that's fucking funny .

Same old same old.
I am not saying I dismiss Charter Change out of hand but give me a break. A year in operation with 32 members. Not exactly a groundswell of support.
The same left over job seekers and NXIVM zombies. Now just add BARBARA LOMBARDO to the recipe and you’ve got a big pot of bullshit.
Finally stop trying to tax us and fee us to death. No change of government or leaders or bonding debt can get us out of this mess. You need to cut Spending. That means cut salaries or people. The truth is DPW is overstaffed, cut the fat than see were that leaves us first, before any new taxes or fees are passed.
