July 4, 2016: Defining events in New York’s history, the future of NYRA
July 4, 2016
In The Spirit of New York: Defining Events in the Empire State’s History, Bruce W. Dearstyne presents New York State history by exploring sixteen dramatic events. We highlighted two on this 4th of July show: the Farmer’s Rebellion and the launch of the women’s rights movement in Seneca Falls.
Advocates for NYRA are bristling about the Governor’s decision to keep it under state control for another year. We spoke with Todd Shimkus, the President of the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce; then Harris Beach attorney Karl Sleight, who heads up the firm’s racing and gaming team.
