Another "working together" democrat. We have had a democrat majority working together in Schenectady for years and look what they have to show for it. Schenectady is in serious economic trouble, most of its neighborhoods have collapsed, there are few jobs to bring in the money to occupy and fix the housing, a fine industrial site that could provide those jobs and create local wealth is being turned into another neighborhood(see above for track record on neighborhoods)which will require money to support its infrastructure. Then there is the one industry in ALCO that is to be proud of and they are squeezing it out so the rich democrats can have fancy river front housing. What we need a some diversity including republicans and independents keeping a tension and balance--and transparency--around here. Forget about more of the same Thorne. The State is about as well off with all its democrats.
