Brown helps community

Published Oct 31, 2017 at 4:00pm

With all of the positive investment by the state here in downtown Rome with the $10 million DRI (Downtown Revitalization Initiative), I’m wondering why the county seems to focus development dollars only on downtown Utica? It seems that NOW is the time for Rome.

Michael Brown works daily to help our community. He assisted the Rome City Codes Department in the writing of the grant for the Blight “Zombie” Project and the DRI. He understands the connections and the language required to bring meaningful economic development to our city and county. His daily interface with Rome’s administration and Common Council, combined with his development background and experience in the non-profit sector will help to focus Oneida County’s tourism and economic development dollars on our region and o ur city. Rome is poised for great things and my vote rests with Michael Brown in order to achieve those possibilities. Please vote Michael Brown for Oneida County Legislature District 12 on November 7th.
