This is another Cuomo horror story. Having major decisions made by appointed Boards not accountable to the voters is the beginning of the end. Instead we need to support candidates who have the mental ability to understand and solve problems without regard to politics.

Sam: Lets start with the police and Fire department. You have 60 individuals in the police department and 55 individuals working in the fire department with a total budget of 9,872,720 or $85,849 per individual. Are you kidding me.

J-town is a city of 30k and losing people yearly.
