I was pleased to have Senator Patty Ritchie call the HOTLINE today to outline the grants made available to Watertown through the consolidated funding application process and the new Regional Councils.
Aside from the pleasantries and mutual admiration Ms. Ritchie outlined her rationale for supporting the Governor's tax deal and made her case on live radio.....And she did it well. Despite my taunts, which I feel obligated to do. Still, most of these pols don't do anything live.....Jim Wright never called the HOTLINE, but I get to talk to him now at Pete's so it doesn't matter.
Through her calls to the show, her Facebook posts and press releases, she is proving to be accessible and someone who relates to all of us.
That's why I declared her to be my favorite Senator today...but had to amend that to State Senator since I already had told Senator Schumer he was my favorite Senator.
