City costs exceed revenue. Gaining more revenue solves some of the problem for the time being.

Turning Stone Casino does not offer WSOP satellites. (cheaper way to enter 10K Main Event in Vegas). Foxwoods is closest casino that offers a couple WSOP satellites. Huge market and interest from local poker players if Schenectady casino creates a feeder system for mega tourneys in Vegas. No competition from any casinos nearby. My guess is Glantz and Rush Street know they can corner market in this area.

Veterans already get 1/2 off their county taxes in Niskayuna. A realtor once told me this. Not intending to discuss the merit of this proposal but I believe veterans get 1/2 off their county tax bill.

I forget when the Glens Falls Civic Center was purchased by private businessmen. At least I think it was... If so, maybe the political will to keep it in Glens Falls lessened. Competition is the name of game...

Employees, school professionals, education professionals and educator were common used words in this article. The phrase "teacher pay" was used once. The word "teacher" in isolation was never used. The article could of used a breakdown to help the reader understand 12 month employees versus other types. Without specifying the article is trying to be inflammatory and insults the reader's intelligence by not providing the necessary data. Albany and Schenectady have extra challenges other districts do not have but one does not know if that is a factor in the pay scales.
