    It looks like the City’s Anti Business Attitude and Culture is working its magic.

    Let’s see how the Capital City is doing:
    High government pensions and govt employees double dip program where you can early retire and continue working.- example Willie Meggs,
    Increasing Taxes. – See Increase Property Taxes
    Growing Bureaucracy. – See new hires by Mayor&City Mgr.
    Lack of up mobility. – See NY Times Article
    Shrinking tax base. – See Labor Stats.
    Rising Crime rate.(highest in State) – See State Stats.

    Pretty soon we will look like Greece or Detroit!

    Vote for Hope & Change – keep electing the same People over and over again and expect change.

    Where is the details? What jobs? Who is closing , leaving, or moving jobs? Ask them why.

    Stats are meaningless without context.
