Schenectady’s new golf pro will be paid far less than his predecessor, who was fired after a disagreement over compensation. Matthew Daley will be paid $65,000, plus benefits, and will share the profits of his lessons at the Schenectady Municipal Golf Course. He will not receive any other compensation.

There goes the Gazette again making up stories. Do you think we are dumb enough to believe that Damon made $516,000 a year at Muni? What did it cost to lease and maintain the golf carts or were they given to him at no cost? How much did he have to pay the help in the clubhouse, And do you expect us to believe that 139 people used the driving range every single day of the week for 8 months straight? I played golf there all of the time and barely ever saw anyone on the driving range, maybe a random person now and again. Please get your so called facts straight when you write a story as we are not as stupid as you would have us believe.

Stating income without expenses is sloppy journalism. So what the new golf pro is going to make less. He's a city employee and gets employee benefits. Wish my healthcare was as good as the city's.

Why are they hiring someone that is not living in Schenectady. I thought you have to live in Schenectady county to apply. It's sad to see how you can break the rules for some. politics

Niskayuna is great and should I take this as a threat cfield, maybe I should give BK a call. And FYI it is a made up story, I play Muni 3 to 4 times a week, at $6 a bucket it would take 139 people a day to make that much money on the driving range, that driving range might see 15 people on a good day. Also I see you are running to the defence of Kathleen Moore, figures, I guess you are the rat in the department.
