Governor Cuomo and Senator Schumer will hold a presser today in Massena and reportedly a deal will be announced to keep Alcoa's west plant open till at least 2018 in exchange for management and union concessions. The presser is being carried live, an almost unheard of thing in local media.
The aluminum giant had announced closure of the plant setting off a political firestorm.
It's hard to imagine Mr. Cuomo going to Massena if not to announce something. If true, a major plus for Dems in the northern end of the River District.
