The casinos will go where Governor Cuomo wants them to go. Saratoga is the only locality that can properly handle a major casino. If more cared they would have shown up at the polls. We already know about the State of New York and it ain't good. Fewer and fewer making all the decisions.

More pie in the sky for Schenectady which refuses to cut salaries, consolidate services nor close useless departments. City Hall will strike out again because the State has had enough.

A great idea and something that Niskayuna used to do. With no County Charter School option this is vital to many City parents stuck in a failing, dangerous school system.

Too bad the Republicans didn't field more candidates in Rotterdam. Every race that was contested went GOP. Rotterdam residents have finally had enough of Democratic fiscal incompetents taxing everything that moves and slime campaigns complete with illegal signs. When City residents will wake up is anybody's guess.

Joseph Lazzari-Thank you for running against the corrupt Democratic mud machine. You ran a clean campaign on the issues. In any other County the Democratic boss Chris Gardiner who lost 3 seats on the County Legislature and slimmed all GOP opponents would be sent packing. Never Schenectady. He will receive a huge raise from the overtaxed County taxpayers and be given a Patroon Award for libelous writing. BTW, the biggest problem is the Glenville Supervisor wanting full time hours?

Mr Orapello- Instead of wasting $100 million on empty facades and putting in another layer of unelected hacks, Montgomery County has a dynamic new retail base on Rt 30. Amsterdam's downtown is coming back with private investment and not government largess. Montgomery Counties sales tax revenue is also way up. If you need a new suit or dress go to Amsterdam never Downtown Schenectady.

Horrible news for overtaxed County taxpayers. Hoping she would go the way of Martin Finn and Matt Martin two Democratic incumbents dumped from the Schenectady County Legislature this year.

Wait a week there will be a new plan. This school board still refuses to go to an all K-8 model which every educational expert says is better than the current mish mosh. The cost of this "proposal" will bankrupt every City taxpayer. The State should take over this school district and Democratic dysfunctional City Hall.

Ellis would not take no for an answer and kept coming back with the same 5 story monster parking garage. This was initially voted down by both BZA and Planning Commissions. Democratic control of all City and County boards has consequences and not positive ones for oppressed property owners. City voters need to come out of the stupor and throw the bums out of City Hall.

At least he has built the Glenville tax base. What about the Mayor's and City Council bloated salaries? They have zero accomplishments. We could get along just fine with 5 City Council people, no assistant Mayor and no Public Safety Commissioner. That would save 10X more than the chump change the editors are crying about. Everything should be at the County level with no more Village of Scotia and no more useless City government.
