Rensselaer County, home of the most powerful Republican in New York State, is GOP territory. Troy, the largest city in the county is GOP controlled. What does that get us on the Economic Growth Report Card?
According to the conservative Business Council, Rensselaer County gets an F in economic growth.
That's an F in jobs, average wage per job, total personal income, per capita personal income and population. The Report Card for all counties can be found here.
