Selling the Budget

Mayor Palmieri taking his budget plans to the people. It’s one of a series of community meetings designed to rally support for the plan. Wednesday night he did not seem to find much of it.
Mayor Palmieri taking his budget plans to the people. It’s one of a series of community meetings designed to rally support for the plan. Wednesday night he did not seem to find much of it.

"It's like an open and close case. I was hoping to hit a couple other subjects but it was kind of closed," says Alfred LaSalle, of Utica.

These people that call West Utica home came to search for answers and to hear what they hoped would be a solid plan for the city's future. But instead they got down right angry.

"The mayor said the credit card was full. Well he wants to pass it on to us. Where are we supposed to get the money from?" says Scott Ragowski, of Utica.

Mayor Palmieri in the hot seat for some but others saying he's making the choices that he has to make. None the less that didn't ease the tension.

"From going to some of the meetings I feel like people are bullied at the meetings. You know, it's almost as if the mayor bullies people at the meetings," says Ragowski.
