Moreland Commission a sham because Cuomo kept it at bay Andrew Cuomo not only knows how to stack a deck, he protects his friends! In the first half of 2013, the state Democratic Committee [NYSDC] raised $5.9 million in soft money — a new single-year record for a New York party committee. The average donation to the NYSDC so far in 2013 is $58,414. From 2008-2012, the average donation to NYSDC was $12,375. The majority ...

Dave Dankanich- In Schenectady the Democrats have held the City Council since 1975. With similar results. Detroit East. Expect a State Control Board takeover this year.

TO ALL --- I really admire anyone who takes the time to write a "letter to the editor" or makes "comments" about one BUT let us all wake up, we, as individuals, are impotent in the current political environment. What can be done to change this very dangerous situation?

A start would be to stop electing "!@#$%^&*()+<>?" to public office.

Does anyone have another suggestion? Maybe "term limits" ? Something has to change or we leave our children & grandchildren a blueprint for absolute disaster

Downtown Schenectady is booming, but the rest of the city is in decay. No one at City Hall has a clue about saving Mt Pleasant, Goose Hill, or Bellvue. They're just letting Section 8 and absentee landlords destroy it. No one enforces zoning. No is protecting quality of life issues. The Democrats in our city are letting the Democrats in New York City use Schenectady as a dumping ground while they continue gentrifying Manhattan. And Brooklyn. Then Cuomo and Silver further screw us by not providing the extra money to deal with all the social ills they drop off on our doorstep!

Ahmjrcpa1, a simple common sense test for voters would weed out most of the liberals who put these a$%#2s in office. Term limits would be the next biggest step in the right direction. Lastly, require the Constitution to be followed as written, and not as ignorant liberals want to interpret it..
