Tonight the OD tells us that "Area SUNY leaders' pay below par."
So what's the point?
Pay in all of Oneida County is "below par" -- in 2002 for individuals, being only 81% of the national average and 85.5% of same for the median family.
Pay in all of Herkimer County is "below par" -- in 2002 for individuals, being only 74% of the national average and 78% of same for the median family.
Ya gotta wonder: What is the motivation for this article?
How about some real investigative journalism for a change? . . . Like telling us . . .
Who owns all the properties along the MVWA's proposed pipeline to Verona (and who will get to write off the cost against their water bills)? Or . . .
What was recently buried beneath the clover field next to the Canalway Trail only a stone's throw from AquaVino and North Genesee St. (and what it means for the future development of Utica) ? Or . . .
What is the value of all the properties improperly hooked up to the Sauquoit Creek Pump Station (and which jurisdictions are collecting how much in taxes, but who is paying to fix the problem)?
There are plenty of things people want to know about that will sell newspapers . . .
but what we seem to mostly get are pieces that drag 'certain' people through the mud, puff up 'certain' others, prop up some communities over others while incompetence or wrong doing there gets a pass, and (like this article) generally distract the public from the real issues affecting them.
