Let’s begin the week with a question: What do you get when you team up a former New York State legislator and a political scientist? A truthful & entertaining look at how Things Get Done in Albany, which perfectly describes the new book Tales from the Sausage Factory. Authors Dan Feldman & Gerry Benjamin, a former Assemblyman and Professor of Political Science respectively, will be here to discuss their new policy “tell all”. We will meet the woman running against Republican Incumbent State Senator James Alesi. Mary Wilmot is facing an uphill battle in which the usual stalwarts of the Democratic Party such as Labor are not being helpful. And finally we check in with pro-business group Unshackle Upstate – Today Brian Sampson will be revealing the groups legislative report card, and we get a preview.
