With the news that Jack McEneny won't be running for re-election this year, something one of his kids told us a few years back came to mind. Said John McEneny of growing up with his dad:
"Every time you got in the car there was a tour. Albany is my dad's Narnia, you know. He sees it as this magical place of people and neighborhoods."
Jack McEneny's had a good, long run representing Albany in the Assembly. But there always comes a time for the next generation, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. McEneny pretty much said as much last night.
Still, the city will be hard pressed to find someone who loves it like that.
