Daily News is reporting Board of Elections commissioners were living large in the Finger Lakes last week, contrary to what Governor Paterson has requested. DN even featured a photo of Jefferson County Democratic Party Chair and Election Commissioner Sean Hennessey.
Her report in part:
Up to 180 elections commissioners and staffers wined, dined and
danced under the stars last week at an annual conference in the scenic Finger Lakes.
Commissioners and employees spent four workdays at a conference at the Ramada Geneva Lake Front, which included plenty of eating, boozing, golf and touring.
All this while Gov. Paterson is urging state agencies to limit "nonessential" travel to help close the budget gap.
