Oh my this was this a boring and tedious event...I hate to say so since the hosts were trying to be helpful.
Senators Darrel Aubertine and William Stackowski (D-Buffalo) hosted the business roundtable held at JCC...
It was mostly guys....I counted like 36 of 40 at the table. All of them economic developers, union bosses, educators, etc.
I think I was the only piddly retailer there and out of courtesy to the professionals I just listened.
The best question actually came from Don Alexander who pointed out how difficult it is to sell New York with such dysfunction in Albany.
The Senators loved that question.
Most of what was said was same old same old....Funny nobody talked about New York's tax burden.
Anyway, I thanked the Senators for taking the time to listen, then went home to watch Glenn Beck.
