A Cry For Help

Both RoAnn Destito and Joe Griffo have op-eds in today's OD bemoaning the state's failure to site the promised data center at SUNY-IT. Both pieces feature a lot of talk about economic growth, high-tech development, and how hard they're both going to fight to make sure it ends up here, yesirree. I could spend a lot of time writing an insightful deconstruction of their respective works, but I'm lazy so I'll cut to the chase.

The state data center is never, ever coming to Oneida County. Nothing they do, from dropping even more money into the "UltraMega Nano-Center" black hole to putting together yet another economic advisory team, can possibly alter that fact.


Because the state public employee unions have already said they don't want it here, and what they say goes.
