While you were shov­el­ing, Al­bany was schem­ing

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - OPINION -

The evening of Sun­day, De­cem­ber 1 – as folks were busy deal­ing with a ma­jor win­ter storm – saw an­other clas­sic Al­bany snow job in the form of a 144page re­port con­tain­ing a Com­mis­sion’s rec­om­men­da­tions for cre­at­ing Al­bany’s lat­est bloated, bu­reau­cratic boon­dog­gle, the “Pub­lic Cam­paign Fi­nance Board” (PCFB). The Com­mis­sion was to “ex­am­ine, eval­u­ate and make rec­om­men­da­tions for new laws with re­spect to how the state should im­ple­ment a sys­tem of vol­un­tary pub­lic cam­paign fi­nanc­ing for state leg­isla­tive and statewide pub­lic of­fices.”

State Sen. Daphne Jor­dan.
