Albany, Dec 7 — Depending on how you see things, the proposed replacement for New York State’s millionaire’s tax is a huge victory for income distribution and fairness, a giant flip-flop by the governor, or a chance for the really rich to get away without paying their fair share.

Suffern, January 30 — When Rockland County’s NYS Senator re-enacts his swearing in ceremony today at 12n at SUNY-Rockland (RCC), he will have a lot to celebrate. This month David Carlucci became the youngest senator in New York state history, left the Democratic caucus, joined three other bolting Dems to form a new caucus, was named to a committee chairmanship and was voted by CityHallNews.com to be one of the “winners” in NYS politics. He also managed to slip away from Albany long enough to get married, too.
