LET STUDENTS COME TO ALBANY!

You should know that Albany is the place where New Yorkers come to let our government know how strongly people feel about any number of issues. Groups come to Albany to lobby on behalf of senior citizens, the DREAM ACT, Earth Day, organized labor, tenants, the gay agenda, Catholic values, libraries, farmers, nurses, etc. (I cannot tell you how many times I have been approached by lobbyists who use the stories of Black and Hispanic children to push for their causes.)

THE PUNISHMENT DOESN’T FIT THE CRIME

THE PUNISHMENT DOESN’T FIT THE CRIME

You should know that I am no fan of Governor Andrew Cuomo. For many years, he and I have publicly disagreed on a number of serious issues, including abortion, traditional marriage, funding for senior citizens and less fortunate New Yorkers, and the urgency of the DREAM Act.

You should also know that I have no doubt that if Kerry Kennedy were not the former wife of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and if she were not the daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy and the niece of President John F. Kennedy, she would not be the target of the great injustice she now faces in her very public trial.

I Told You So

I Told You So

As you know, the latest hot potato in our political world here in Albany is the leap of faith just taken by Democratic Senator Tony Avella from Queens, New York to abandon the every-day weakening Democratic Conference and jump to the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) led by Senator Jeffrey Klein from the Bronx.

You should know that with this jump, I am pretty sure that Senator Avella will be getting some benefits and privileges, e.g., office, staff, and a committee chairmanship, most likely the Aging Committee, which is currently vacant.
