STATEMENT FROM MAYOR BILL NELSON

Today, I call upon Art Sciorra to resign as Ogdensburg city manager.

As I talk to city residents this fall, they tell me over and over again how Mr. Sciorra has lost their
trust and confidence because of the ongoing issue at 819 Knox St. I do not believe, based on
those conversations, that Mr. Sciorra can earn back that trust.

I have started my own independent review of the e-mail exchanges between the city planner and
his boss, the city manager. I was disheartened to read that Mr. Sciorra was aware of the situation
more than 2 years ago and took no discernible action to rectify the situation.

Mr. Sciorra also did not inform City Council of the ongoing issue, which left us unable to make
decisions that could have rectified the situation.

A city manager's duty to his employer - the taxpayers - is to be honest, accountable and
transparent at all times. I do not believe Mr. Sciorra can continue to meet that standard.

I urge my fellow City Council members to join me in calling for Mr. Sciorra to step down.
