Autumn is Here...

And it certainly took long enough. There was a chill in the air today for the first time since the spring, at least it feels like it has been that long.

With four weeks to go until the election, we are just about in the stretch run. Tomorrow is the day we pick up the big endorsement from the New York League of Conservation Voters. During the interview process we shared a lot of interesting ideas, went back and forth on a few issues, and came to a real understanding. If nothing else, it is great to have a group like that interested in Troy. For more information about the League, check out www.nylcv.org

We have a few more endorsements coming down the pipe as well. You can be assured of one thing, they will not be based on blind politics like so many others covet this time of year. Endorsements of political allies is one thing. Endorsement of ideas, of change, and of progress is much more important, in my opinion anyway.

In reality, I only want one endorsement this Fall- that of the people of Troy.

If you are around Troy tomorrow, don't forget to bring any old electronics down to E-Lot for the Free Recycling Day. Check out www.elotrecycling.com to see what they accept.

The endorsement is at 3 p.m. if anyone would like to stop by. It should be a fun time, and you can hear about some more of the great activities happening in Troy.

Stay warm... Haven't said that in awhile.
