Ed Hanna running for Mayor of Utica? Leon Koziol running for County Executive?
Say what you want about Mr. Hanna -- he didn't always do the right thing -- he sometimes said things that would be embarrassing to Uticans living elsewhere -- he was eccentric -- But the City never looked as good as it did when he was Mayor. Not everyone can be rich, but everyone can be neat and clean, and that is the first step in getting somewhere. The same is true for cities and Mr. Hanna knew it.
Mr. Koziol is a mixed bag, too. But he's educated, experienced, and knows the law.
Elections this year are shaping up to be very interesting.
Finally the voters are getting some choices.
