Utica Councilman and candidate for comptroller James Zecca is responding to colleague and fellow candidate Bill Morehouse’s announcement that, if elected, he would do the job of Utica Comptroller for a salary of one dollar and no healthcare benefits.

In a written release sent overnight, Zecca calls the move “…nothing more than a desperate political ploy from a man (who) is clearly out-of-touch with the fiscal hardships being faced by the average Utican.”

He asserts that Morehouse “was raised into personal wealth” and points to his push to eliminate health insurance for part-time employees and members of the Utica Common Council.

The statement was released shortly after 12:30am on October 3, 2013 as a response to Morehouse’s comments during an interview with Councilman Joe Marino on WIBX on October 2, 2013.

Here is the original story:
