On this best-of show, we return to mid-July – a time when several of the Cuomo administration’s economic development programs were being criticized in the media. We had a chance to speak with EJ McMahon, the President and Founder of the Empire Center who helped to explain the difficulty of creating jobs Upstate. We heard from Lee Willbanks, Save the River Executive Director, who discussed efforts to restore the St. Lawrence River. And Bruce Gyory of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips warned politicians against politicizing the murders of both police and unarmed black men.
