So what happens to Mr. Racette, and his 2 close associates? Are they out of a job? will they be placed elsewhere, or will they perhaps be able to take retirement? Racette was only head of the facility for 3 weeks.

When the Wal-Mart in Gloversville was moved from the town to the city, a law enforcement officer told me he was glad it was now the city's problem. GPD has a constant run to Wal-Mart mostly for shoplifters.

I am not going to try to judge weather this person should be fired or not, but it does show that the police officers did their job properly. A lot of persons under arrest try to get out of it. The fact he was intoxicated is a factor in his persistence in trying to get out of this. He was not in a clear state of mind at the time. It is not a crime to ask. He did not offer a bribe or threaten anyone which would have been a crime.

Big deal, he asked and he was refused. He did not offer a bribe, asking is not a crime.

Sounds like a lot of handouts just to create 25 - 30 jobs. Corporate welfare at its best.

After the Obamacare mess do we want this. This will drive business out of NY for sure. Anything the gov't touches ends up costing more, not less.

A lot can happen in 18 months. Mr. Farley being in his 80's could suffer a medical condition which could keep him from finishing his current term or fulfilling a following term. Mr. Klueg trying to get recognition could help in that event. With the republican control of the senate marginal, this could be a factor in which party leads this house.

It is much too early to be announcing a run for an election and primary more than a year away. One would think that the republicans would be looking for a candidate to replace Mr. Farley given his advanced age and the fact that he might not be able to complete a term. With the majority in the senate paper thin, and the democratic governor looking for ways to take over the senate, should a vacancy occur, we could see vacancies that are filled not by special election, but by waiting until the following general election. The governor has not declared vacancies in the past. Vacancies could shift the control of the senate, at least temporarily. We have all seen that one party rule is not good.
