    come upstate and meet with Democratic officials and Committee members in little/big cities last summer. I was there, and he really filled up the room with charisma.

    I don't love him (I don't like his education policies, wish he was very anti-fracking, and can't stand the 2% cap to property taxes), but my husband is a union member plus retired union member, and his "cuts" and changes seem fair to us and his co-workers. Don't love them, but the state is really in dire need of changes.

    I wish the 2% cap would go, though. I don't know how counties and local towns and cities will handle the loss of revenue. I fear for Medicaid and school systems. In those respects I am annoyed with Cuomo. I wish he would outlaw fracking. I wish he would be more pro-middle and -lower classes.

    BUT. Palladino would NEVER have been a good choice!!! That man would have TOTALLY walkerized this state. I hope that what you said was snark...  :)

    And, even if he continues on the same course as now, if the state starts getting into a better financial situation and there are jobs created and the housing market rises, I really don't think he'll have a hard time getting the party nomination again...
