Michael Arcuri Economic Development Plan Abandons Most of District

Michael Arcuri’s economic development proposal centers around the expansion of route 12. The problem? Route 12 only goes along the eastern edge of New York State’s 24th congressional district. It connects Utica and Binghamton. Of course, Binghamton isn’t in the 24th District! So, who is the route 12 development intended to benefit?

The answer: Michael Arcuri’s political supporters in Utica – investors, we might call them.

The huge bulk of district 24 would get absolutely no benefit from the expansion of route 12. In fact, route 12 expansion would damage the other substantial communities of the 24th District: Auburn and Cortland, taking traffic, and much needed business, away from those cities. Places like Geneva and Tompkins county on the western side of the district would also be left in the lurch, but they’d have to help pay the cost – all for the benefit of Oneida County businessmen supporting Michael Arcuri’s campaign.

The people of the 24th District need a congressman who will represent all of the people in the district, not just the Democratic power brokers in Utica and Oneida County.

Unlike Michael Arcuri, Les Roberts is not beholden to any local party bosses. Les Roberts is his own man, and so we can count on Les Roberts to represent us all, not just a few people with business schemes and powerful connections in Utica.
