  1. It looks like WBNG and WICZ did cover it. The “reporting” though leaves much to be desired. The WBNG story says Fred Akshar is running for “Broome County Mayor”.

    Korchak mocking drug users (text message included)

    “One toothed drug addict”… WOW! Incredibly inappropriate for the DA to say. Not that I’m surprised though, after all we’ve found out about Korchak over the last year. He needs to resign and save himself the embarrassment of the next election.
  3. Starting rumors about a local police chief along with a nude image. All on county time. Wagner needs to be fired and face official misconduct charges.

    8/21 BU is back

    434 West is currently backed up from the University all the way into Binghamton (across river from Lourdes Hospital).

    District Attorney poll: Korchak or Battisti

    In my several decades of living and working in Broome County, I’ve never seen the public so resoundingly question or reject an announcement from a DA or police agency. I work with police and the residents of Broome County everyday, and its obvious Korchak now has a major credibility problem. And this comes at a time when drug overdoses are up, and crime is increasing. This is a potentially very bad situation for all of Broome County.

    WTH? Steve Cornwell?

    From the people I’ve talked to about this, no one understands any of it. And Korchak’s refusal to let an independent prosecutor, or other office, handle it reeks of political motives and wrongdoing by Korchak.

    Broome County Airshow for the rich

    Yes... the briefing from NWS doesn't look good. It's a shame it will have a big impact on the Conklin Fair, Lumberjack Festival and Air show. I have to work today one of the events today, hopefully everyone stays safe.

    Broome County Airshow for the rich

    I do know when aircraft like an F-18 fly at the airport, they need to create a flight box of the surrounding neighborhood, who must leave their homes during the show, per Air Force safety rules. I believe the county actually pays these homeowners off, and the hold-offs end up getting more money at the end. If they don't agree to vacate their homes, the F-18's cannot fly. But I don't believe there is anything from the Air Force saying certain roads must be closed. That is all county greed. They don't want spectators on the sides of the road, they want to force you to pay to come to the air show.
  9. I agree with that. 95% of the county Exec job is ceremonial (ribbon cuttings, press conferences) and running for re-election.
  10. I’m at a loss for words. I have to put this up there with Tim Grippen’s 42% tax increase as the biggest failures in the history of Broome County government. Unfortunately Mike Korchak, nice guy or not, well intentioned or not, does not have the abilities needed to serve as District Attorney. In the interests of moving the DA’s office forward, and best serving the people of Broome County, Korchak should resign and let someone who can handle the job serve as DA.

    POLL: What should Korchak do

    I thought she worked at the jail?
  12. Yeah, this is inexcusable. I work with a lot of different local government agencies, and I guarantee no one else in local government got a $15,000 raise. Dozens of local businesses closed. And I know many friends who lost jobs. The audacity to give a raise, let alone a $15,000 raise, is enough for me to go door to door against Korchak when he runs again. And I had a Korchak lawn sign up last time.
