'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Monday, January 30, 2012

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

What’s former Assemblyman & current Senior Fellow at Demos think about the Governor’s budget and the newly proposed redistricting maps? We’ll ask the outspoken 14-termer from Westchester -- and perhaps fit in a question about his recent trip to Russia.

Capital Region Assembly Democrat Robert Reilly is known for taking stands for libraries & against Mixed Martial Arts – and for giving away his legislative salary. He’s a member of the majority in the Assembly, so why has his district been extensively redrawn?

We talk property taxes and mandate relief with aspiring Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, who was recently lauded by the National Review for speaking out against a New York Times editorial about affordable housing.

And the state of our libraries is in jeopardy according Mike Borges, the Executive Director of the New York Library Association. He’ll join us along with Libby Post of Communication Services to discuss funding.
