This is the contest that will allow us to have a little fun with that legendary Greater Utica question: Are Nano jobs really coming to the area?

Today is the day that Governor Cuomo is going to be making the big job announcement on Nano Tech; at least we think.

The contest is actually pretty simple.  People called the Keeler in the Morning show and predicted the exact date Governor Andrew Cuomo was going to come into town to announce 1000 jobs or more.  The winner will get $500 in cash from the Hobika Law Firm courtesy of Andrew and Joe Hobika.  Additionally, there was a twist!  The number of jobs has to be 1000 or more; not 999.  Furthermore, the 'nay-sayers' who feel these jobs are never coming; they had a chance to win, as well.  Those people will stand a chance to win the cash if by December 31st, the 1000 jobs aren't announced.

Today, Governor Cuomo has scheduled an announcement at the Marcy nano site and many believe it will be about more than 1000 jobs.  If that's the case, Jerry Williams will win the $500 from Hobika.  The rules say that if the Governor quotes more than 1000 for the future, Williams will win.  If it's 999 jobs or less, then the contest remains open for the rest of the year.

The announcement is expected to come today at 11 a.m. and WIBX will carry the press conference live.
