He was very helpful in the recent Animal Shelter debacle, outing Mindy's role in all aspects of the hiring process. He was the first to expose the hiring process used in Saratoga County. Too bad the story is not interesting enough for the local papers.

Actually, you might want to look up what Ted Cruz has done. He has been raking in the big bucks from his most recent attempt at financial terrorism. He was bragging about his exploits even as the votes were being taken in the House. He has made millions for his antics.

And not a single spot for a wheel-chair bound person, because people in wheel chairs don't like entertainment, right. Nice job Sonny.

If there were no prisons in her territory would Kathy Marchione give a damn? As the population in the prisons is shrinking, most thinking people would conclude that the budget for prisons would also decline. She's just representing the 50 people in her area that work at Mt. McGregor, at the expense of every other tax payer. Kathy, most of your constituents DO NOT WORK AT THE PRISON. They just support the inefficiency so a few can keep their jobs.

Pay the fine and don't forget to change the name of your company so new customers won't know what a scum you are.While it is hard to give contractors a bad name, some try harder than others.

Tanski is such a bad apple that taking his money in a campaign is seen as siding with the sleaze-factor. So in this context, it is a valid part of the story. Unfortunately, campaigns cost so much money that anyone running who is not a millionaire must accept funding from the dark side. It was one of the most often-cited negatives about the Surlo campaign.

Willow Marsh is one of many farms that make the town of Ballston so beautiful. Even as the town is about to unveil a draft Farm Land Protection and Preservation Plan, to help save other farms, there are two clowns on the town board who wish to eliminate the Farm Land Protection Committee. They think we need more development, a parks and recreation department and silencing farmers while bragging about how supportive they are of open space.

Seriously, Murphy? You and the rest of the county have already convicted this person. You have attended public events in honor of the teens who died. It was a horrible event, but let's not make it worse by hanging this guy. Given all the love and caring expressed by families, friends and strangers towards the victims, it would be hard to find an impartial jury. The request to move the trial is appropriately made before, not after, it becomes apparent that justice will not be just, but revengeful.

Why was the State Police Community Narcotics Enforcement Team involved? Wasn't there a similar group in Albany County that spent more time with prostitutes than drug dealers and ended up dissolved? Not sure I get the connection here between prostitution and narcotics.

With on-line retail growing, and local retail space going vacant for years, the Town of Ballston does not need more retail space. Nor is there a need for more tightly=packed housing, often sold to poor fools who think they're buying a little bit of the countryside, but end up complaining about kite-flying.The only person profiting is the developer and I can't think of a single reason to make him richer while sacrificing the town.
