Late report is that the NYS budget
will include the 12.5 million dollar
bailout to  close the hole in the 2017
Albany City budget.

Are there strings attached?

Will the Mayor support Governor
Cuomo for reelection in the 2018
Democratic Primary?

UPDATE: Mayor Sheehan failed
to answer this question during the
lightning round of the Spectrum
Mayoral forum, August 17, sayng
"to early to discuss this question".

Translation: just as Sheehan supported
Governor Cuomo's Democratic primary
challenger four years ago, you can bet she
will do the same in 2018.

Do you really think the Governor will
reward Sheehan with another dime of
state aid, to prop her up?

If you do, I have a Hudson River bridge
to sell you.
