Morning Musings

Fresh Air Possible For DANC
Robert Juravich has announced his retirement from his $123,279.00 a year executive director's position in the alpha male dominated Development Authority of the North Country (DANC) organization.

A memo to the board: hire fresh new blood for the next executive director, do not hire from within. The organization needs to move away from the ego driven organization it is now to one that is responsive and accountable to the public.

SD 7
Craig Johnson, first term Senator, 7th district and moral caucus partner of Darrel Aubertine, is in some tough sledding for his Senate race. He lost the Independence Party line to his opponent Barbara Donno, he is knocked off the Working Families Party line for invalid signatures and now Golisano bails on him.

SD 48
Darrel Aubertine continues his whine about being politically mistreated and a reporter continues to take the hook, line and sinker. Yet, Aubertine and staff continue to fail to produce those memos as proof that he was on top of the job of passing the 4 home rule bills when the time was appropriate. The Aubertine hypocrisy: 5 YEARS in the Assembly and he did nothing to change partisan politics with regard to treatment of minority members and their constituents in the Assembly.

Meanwhile, David Renzi, instead of complaining, is focused on what good he will do for Northern and Central New York with his economic announcement found on Newzjunky

Feel the Pain - Budget Cuts
The North Country with its heavy population of prisons is likely to feel some impact from the Governor's cuts, prisons are one of the priority cuts on the hit list of the Governor.
