Northern New Yorkers just don't know how to play the big time, big money political game...A review of pages and pages of donors to Governor Cuomo this year shows the leaders are Lucy Waletsky and the Empire Dental PAC at $60,800 each.
I didn't see any recognizable names until I got down to $1000 when a saw a Robert Johnson, who might be the local doctor who ran for Congress up here.....Of course, its a common name, so it could be someone else....
Heck, when you read up on these reports, you will find a town supervisor in Suffolk County with a $2million dollar war chest.
These reports are on file at the NYS Board of Elections website. All that transparency is a reminder that we are the "little people" the big time pols always talk about.
