Mayors from across the state are in Albany to testify at today’s budget hearing on aid to localities. Two upstate mayors join us to discuss what they want to impart to lawmakers: we will hear Mayor Lovely Warren of Rochester and Mayor Kathy Sheehan of Albany.
More on how local governments are doing with Assemblyman John McDonald, former Mayor of Cohoes, and Bethlehem Supervisor John Clarkson.
We speak with members of the environmental community: Adirondack Council’s Willie Janeway, NYPIRG’s Laura Haight and EANY’s Peter Iwanowicz.
We discuss spinal cord injuries with David Carmel, co-founder of New Yorkers to Cure Paralysis.
