Russ Finley and Mayor Miner
Big Russ showed his maverick spirit by posing with the Mayor, something most partisans would disapprove of. However Mayor Miner has been at odds with Governor Cuomo and her address to the group was on municipal consolidation and tax breaks to developers.
Mr. Finley is seeking the GOP nod to run against Assemblywoman Addie Russell.
There will likely be a Republican primary with John Byrne also running, and possibly others. However, Mr. Finley is well connected with the Conservative Party and if he gets the W/P it will be hard for the GOP to turn him away.
As for her honor, she is term limited and it will be interesting to see where she lands next. Previous Salt City mayors have been well taken care of including Matt Driscoll who has a cushy state job.
