GORDON GETS BIG BOOST
GOP candidate for Mayor, Jim Gordon, received the coveted endorsement of former Republican gubernatorial candidate, Rob Astorino. Astorino lost the 2014 race for Gubernator to Andrew Cuomo. On a scale of 1-to-10, how many political influence points is this endorsement worth?
d) Rob Who?
Said Gordon: "I am honored by this endorsement. I used to own a '78 Astorino. Best car I ever had. Went from 0 to 60 in twelve minutes."
District Attorney Joel Abelove is encouraging his assistants to carry concealed weapons. Abelove has already shot himself in the political foot a number of times and now wants his people to have the same opportunity.
Abelove issued the statement, saying he doesn't want to deprive his staff of their 2nd Amendment Rights. No word if he is encouraging staff to publicly criticize him, in honor of the First Amendment.
Lawyers with concealed weapons: What could possibly go wrong?
Abelove did not comment on dismissing, or failing to act on, charges against political supporters.
Big day today. We should learn what the proposed tax hike will be. Some say up to 20%. Others say high single digits. We'll know soon enough. Place your bets.
FIREARM SEIZURES UP
Police Chief John Tedesco announced that firearm seizures are up 68% in the City of Troy. Surprisingly, shooting are trending down. There have been twenty-three shootings this year compared to forty-seven in 2014. But it's only October. We have three months to go. Lets do this! If we focus and put our minds to it, we can beat last year's numbers.
Maybe Abelove's staff can help.
