CITY ..........OR NOT?
With updates: 1/27 and 1/29.
Last night WGY Radio 810 NEWS
had a report that announced Albany
Mayoral candidate . Carolyn McLaughlin
currently Albany Common Council
President, advocates/supports Albany
being a sanctuary city for illegal aliens.
Frank Commisso jr interview with
Paul Vandenburgh on Talk 1300 radio
unannounced candidate for Albany
Mayor? No position on sanctuary
Incumbent Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan
a big advocate/supporter of sanctuary city
status for Albany.
Will the Albany Common Council adopt
a local law declaring Albany a sanctuary
Will the Albany County Legislature oppose
sanctuary status for Albany City/County?
What will Cohoes, Watervliet and the Towns
and villages of Albany County do?
Sanctuary city/town/county? Is a defining issue
in the 2017 local elections.
Update Sunday, January 29:
Sheehan and McLaughlin support Albany being
a sanctuary city. Commisso is not sure Albany
is a sanctuary city.
All three appear to believe that winning the
Democratic Primary translates to winning the
November 2017 General Election.
Will a Democratic candidate emerge who
opposes Albany being a sanctuary city, who
supports enforcing existing U S Immigration
Law and the rule of Law, who opposes the
trash tax, who recognizes that oil and natural
gas resource development will create needed
jobs and spur economic development in
Albany and, that together with consolidation
of city schools with city government, with one
property tax roll to support both, will allow the
City of Albany to provide real property
tax relief and achieve a balanced city budget
that does not rely on annual handouts from
New York State?
Will such a candidate emerge in the November
2017 General Election thereby
giving Albany voters a real choice to prevent
Albany from becoming Detroit on the Hudson?
PS: Here is what a Massachusetts Sheriff thinks
Albany citizen voters what do you think?
What about President Trump's Immigration
