    Yeah, Peter’s 100% correct on this one: 10 months isn’t enough time to do squat. Save your expectations for a lively primary, everyone. I’m getting the popcorn ready.

    Slightly relevant side bar: this leftist is so happy to see Cuomo out. I don’t think he was terribly good for the Adirondacks or most of NY, frankly. We don’t have to settle for sexist, mafioso strongmen. An excellent exercise in a political party swiftly purging its toxic leadership. I wonder who could learn from this example…

    I thought that this was a well done article. I did not expect to see an in-depth look at Hochul relative to the Adirondack Park so quickly. Here’s to hoping that she’ll take the Park in a better direction.
