The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

Wednesday, September 05, 2007


The North Greenbush Caucus is tonight and the Troy Polloi will be blogging live from the Elks Club.

No, not really. We just thought that, but for us, you'd never see the words 'blogging' and 'Elks Club' in the same sentence.

The Spanish Democrats are looking to nominate:

Mark Evers - Supervisor

Lou Desso - Council

Al Spain - Council

Katie Connolly - Clerk

Mike Carey - Highway Superintendent

Kyran Devery - Receiver of Taxes

The Unreformed Democrats appear poised to nominate:

Joshua Sabo - Supervisor

Bryan Dwyer - Council

Josephine Ashworth - Council

Jan Liberty - Clerk

Mark Premo - Highway Superintendent

Dennis Bonesteel - Receiver of Taxes

Moderate drama, to say the least. We'll know the outcome in approxiamtely 14 hours.


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.

We did get a D+ in sharing with others and a D- in reading comprehension.

Keep up the good work.
