Mademoiselle at 260 ?

    I was thumbing through the new NNY Business magazine today and thought I was reading Mademoiselle or Vogue.
Cover of NNY Business

    The glossy monthly published by the WDT and edited by Key Eysaman featured a cover story about women in high places. The artsy glamour shots centered on some top government managers and appointees, while the top elected officials were in the also-mentioned section of stock head shots.
    Maybe next month, Ken can mix a little Cosmo in the format so we can call him the Helen Gurley Brown of Watertown.
      Justin Sorenson did a great job on the photos. They do a great job on pictures and should run more in their publications. Annie Leibovitz couldn't have done a better job.

What does it have to do with NNY business?
Maybe they should rename it "Squashing NNY Business".
Then Addie could be the centerfold.

If cutting services to the taxpayers and continuing petty fights with city employees while waging war with the fire department is good for business; then I guess it's time move.

Right you are 254, but Really shouldn't there be more when you mention Petty fights with COW employees???

Well said by both posters above. Not a fan of this group...at all. A couple of them are just over their heads but in their defense they were chosen by others.

Isn't that cover photo sexist? Would they have four guys pose like that?

I won't be getting this publication anymore anyway. Canceled subscription to the WDT today because of the price increase.

If there was some actual content in the paper I'd keep it, but it's not worth $20 month for giant photos and fluff stories.

No offense to my friend, Deanne, but I recall AG "hit-and-run" Schneiderman fined Bach & Co., Tim Adderley and others thousands of dollars under the ruse of some obscure law they violated by not having their telephone number(s) on their estimate(s). It was not even complaint driven.

While the fly-by-night contractors operate with impunity under the radar.

"Squashing NNY business" I would say so.

All the NYS AG (Schneiderman, Cuomo, Spitzer) have been about is issuing press releases - presumably, as a stepping-stone to higher office. Sadly, there is little real consumer advocacy (or investigation of public corruption, for that matter. Public Integrity Officer? Thank God for U.S. Attorney Bharara).

Sadly two of the folks got their stardom as "political appointees" Funny the CM doesn't look like a Domestic violence victim?

Wow ! The fire queens want to anonymously attack the poor woman on a blog. Such brave boys you are ! Maybe next time she will think twice before she takes away your OT.
Lets hope its still just the same two of them here and the entire department still doesn't agree with them. And more importantly, the voters don't agree with them, which is why DeMar lost big time and the mayor who promised to right size the department, won...by a lot.

7:33 the budget will be out in a couple of months. Please compare the savings the CM has given us. Then get back to us. Right size can then be debated. Are you little Marco?

733 you are an idiot as usual. You are not even a city resident so why do you feel so self-important that you have to attack people all the time? You are sad, strange little man.... As far as the election goes this was hardly a referendum on the fire department. Corruption exposed and some needed changes in city government. Lets hope the next election also brings some badly needed changes. Now go to bed.
