At the Sunrise Rotary, I had an attentive crowd for my little talk on local government finances and I think my explanation on sales tax and how it works was informative.
You know, the everyday things in life are often just accepted but never explained.
The breakfast at the Black River Club was excellent and I appreciate the hospitality.
We talked about the pension situation too and I am hearing many people are appreciative of the leadership shown by Syracuse Mayor Miner in speaking out on the structural problems with how the plan is funded and her criticism of the Governor's patch called "pension smoothing".
I have to go pick up some printing at Coughlin's today. I threw a fit yesterday over their new on-line proofing system that's hard to navigate and no substitute for just getting a paper proof and marking it up. Change is not always progress.
Other than that, we are getting ready for the big event at the Pearl Street Pub as the folks from FX Matt Brewery come in to hold a tasting for their Saranac products. A large crowd is expected, so please stop by.
