Review for The Utica Center For Development, Utica, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This place is AKA the Central New York Veterans Outreach Center. I served as a Board member for a short time until it became clear that the Executive Director would do ANYTHING (lie, cheat, steal and discredit those around him) to get his way and the one thing he wanted desperately was to receive monetary compensation. It is no secret that the Executive Director is not respected within this community and that he routinely hires family, friends and those he feels that he can control and that will follow his direction, no matter how corrupt the request. No one even knows how the place stays open considering that it is in violation of more codes than one could even effectively write up. He is Also known for his extremely poor temper and given to fits of rage when he does not get his way. He intimidates and forces his will upon others. We live in a corrupt political city and unfortunately, this type of thing is very common. Corrupt not for profits have always been the norm
