I heard that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the Leaders of the NYS Legislative are in deep negotiations regarding pay increases for us the members of the NYS Legislature.

You should know that we as Legislators have not had a salary increase for more than ten years and that the hypocrisy of many of my colleagues is to say “NO” when asked if they will like to see their salary increased, even though most of them, just like me are in favor and wishing for it to happen soon.
