The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

Friday, July 27, 2007


Yesterday, Troy Police made courtesy calls on members of Troy's Most Wanted List. The sweep began at 6:00AM and was Christened Operation Day Break (or, as we like to call it, Operation Wake-up Mother F%$#@*!).

The lucky winners received a pair of stainless steel bracelets, an armed escort and an all-expenses-paid trip to one of the city's busier get-away spots.

For Mayor Tutunjian, who has presided over an unprecedented violent crime wave, it will mean yet another rise in violent crime.

We'd like to thank the men and women of the Troy Police Department for addressing these issues despite the lack of leadership in City Hall. Nice to see someone doing something.


Troy has been warned to brace for a Fudge Fancy shortage. City Hall will not be implementing its Cookie Emergency Plan but will ask residents to observe opposite side of the table dining rules. Guess the Vanilla Bean never got the Renaissance memo. Although Bella Napoli partisans, we'll miss the Vanilla Bean. Sad when another Troy business shuts it's doors.


Pursuant to New York State Election Law, most candidates for public office are required to file their financial disclosure on-line. Why have so few complied with the law?

As of today, a majority of the City Council candidates have not filed with the State Board of Elections. Some may not yet have active accounts because they have not raised any money. There's also a waiver for electronic filing if you do not have access to adequate technology, but that would be rare in this day and age.

Those who have filed include Dunne, Brown, McGrath and Zalewski. Collier and Wojcik have not filed their July Periodic Report despite having received $400.00 each from Tutunjian prior to the cut-off date.

Campaign Treasurers face fines up to $500.00 for failing to file.
