First, you must know that Mr. Picente is on #NoHospitalDowntown's list of those who Support A Very Destructive Downtown Utica Hospital District.
Is a downtown hospital part of another new position Mr. Picente is heading-up? Learn about the New York State Sports & Entertainment Facilities Association.
March 2, 2017 - Did you catch the County Executive Anthony J. Picente, Jr.'s 2017 State of County Address and media reactions? Where on earth will everyone park; AUD, Gun Club, Casino, Beer Museum & Incubator, more Office Space? He even said and included words "arts district". Really? The AUD is not part of Utica's arts district, so where's the kitchen sink?
What about a "History District" too? Nah, seems there's no room for Oneida County History with this executive, consider: Oneida County History: Furgit Abot It!.
December 27, 2016 - Nano is very much nano-sized, after 20+ years and no jobs for people making "computer chips"; so is more government created projects and positions all we can expect? So where is our County Executive trying to lead us? Who's going to be willing to follow him...
So is more government, and a government-built museum a good follow-up to nano? Nano that's not yet happened - and that's after over 15 years? He'd bulldoze 34 acres for a 5th, inner-city, hospital district and then add a beer museum? Seems a beer museum is already in place, or should atleast be built in Utica's Brewery District near our brewery, right?
