Has the Union College Board of Trustees discussed the city requests for financial assistance with the Union Administration. The Trustees are the ones who approve the yearly college budgets each Spring. It would be interesting to hear the view of Union Life Trustee Neal Golub and a Metroplex member in particular on the Mayor's requests. Perhaps the City needs to hold meetings directly with UC Board finance committee members.
Does Wajda suggest that the many other colleges that do provide pilots to their communities do not also provide large economic impacts in their host communities. This impact claim been used as a completely bogus argument for not helping taxpayers with direct financial aid and is frequently advanced by Union College. Does he suggest RPI or Cornell for example have no beneficial economic impacts on Troy or Ithaca? Both also make direct financial contributions.

Time for a new Building Inspector? Heritage Foundation gave ample warning that was ignored. Time for an investigation by outside experts!

Seems like from the remarks above we still have a problem with the police culture in Schenectady. The Mayor and Commissioner are doing the right thing and trying to change it!

Overwhelming support of local Democratic party establishment for HRC without a thought of democratic discussion with the rank and file Dems is so Schenectady! Let's open up the party process the way it's done in Bernie's Vermont!

Perhaps President Ainlay as leader of an "anchor tenant" might ask his trustees when they meet this Spring to financially help the city by contributing to the police and fire budgets or commit to a generous PILOT as is the case with many colleges who have recognized their responsibilty to help burdened taxpayers in their host cities. RPI and Cornell are two colleges that have done so. Union has refused to help and expects the city residents to continue to subsidize it even as it has taken many properties off the tax rolls and used them to capture student housing income that formerly went to city property owners -some of that income which previously went back to pay city taxes. It's time for Union to help! It's time for the Gazette to again ask about this longstanding issue!!

Not an appropriate association! "Rush" street

The Rush—A rush is the initial response the abuser feels when smoking or injecting methamphetamine. During the rush, the abuser’s heartbeat races and metabolism,1 blood pressure and pulse soar. Unlike the rush associated with crack cocaine, which lasts for approximately two to five minutes, the methamphetamine rush can continue for up to thirty minutes.

Or is this intended for the gambling experience as well?

Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer, and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult…. All that was required of them was a primitive patriotism which could be appealed to whenever it was necessary to make them accept longer working hours or shorter rations. And when they become discontented, as they sometimes did, their discontentment led nowhere, because being without general ideas, they could only focus it on petty specific grievances.”

– George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

Above all, gambling!
