This week in a Times Union op/ed former state Assemblyman Richard Brodsky highlighted the precarious long-term situation surrounding the city of Albany's budget: "This would normally be a moment for the political, business and labor leadership of Albany to, well, at least talk about what's coming down the road. More so, you would think, because there will be a mayoral primary election in 15 days. Two talented candidates are vying for the Democratic nomination, which is tantamount to taking office. The silence is deafening. The candidates seem to agree that the state should give them more money. Who doesn't?"
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
