New Hartford residents...these gentlemen represent you on the Oneida County Board of Legislators. We urge you to take the time to view the video...it's less than 9 minutes long.
In the video, Mr. D'Onofrio says he has never had a question that Steve DiMeo won't or can't answer regarding EDGE. Well, Mr. D'Onofrio we wished you had stayed around when we asked questions of Mr. DiMeo after the January 30, 2008 meeting at New Hartford High School regarding the New Hartford Business Park. Mr. DiMeo couldn't answer our questions (actually, we believe he could have answered the questions; however, we believe the answers to our questions would have only beget more questions that Mr. DiMeo didn't want to have asked). It's all in the way you ask the questions as to the answers you get, Mr. D'Onofrio.
Concerned Citizens asks hard-hitting questions...Mr. DiMeo evaded our questions...and that's a fact. By the way, the details of the New Hartford Business Park project that was presented at the January 30, 2008 meeting do not match the project details as they are being carried out today; yet, there has been no further communication to the taxpayers of New Hartford from either the town, the school (remember, the NH school board voted to give up tax revenue for the next 15 years to build roads for a private developer), the county or Mr. DiMeo! In fact, RoAnn Destito even stated in a recent newspaper article that the town needs to go to the public before they try to sell us another bridge!
We couldn't agree with your opening commentary on the video more, Mr. D'Onofrio, because frankly we are also tired of listening to you and all the rest of your fellow politicians who fail to ask the "right" questions, and we also happen to agree with you on another point in your rant...we firmly believe that there should be term limits too. Frankly, change is way overdue!
