Donald Trump endorsed by NY GOP chair | WGRZ.com

    After joining with the rest of the establishment pols in NY quietly backing John Kasich, Nixon son in law and State GOP Chair Ed Cox finally backed the overwhelming winner of the primary, Donald Trump.  About time Ed.
    Ted Cruz has an issue....Bathrooms. When asked on the Today Show if Caitlyn Jenner could choose the bathroom of her choice at Trump Tower, Donald Trump said yes.  Lyin Ted jumped on it telling a Maryland audience that Mr. Trump thinks men should be allowed to go to the little girls room.
    This bathroom deal is such a non issue. I asked the same question Matt Lauer ask Trump of the owner of the restaurant where I am having dinner and he gave the same answer as Trump.
     Ran into a couple of establishment Dems at Pete's and showed them the map of all the Bernie counties where the Upstate Rural Conference is. They discounted it, suggesting to me they are not in touch with their peeps.
     With the Arena fiscally vilified by the Third Floor as the reason for budget woes, I speculated today on the radio that maybe the whole effort was in error. Between the roll out, the infighting and the scapegoating I do wonder but I still hope in the long run families and visitors will enjoy it.
      I did stick up on the air for Mayor Butler who really found a pair Tuesday when he finally articulated the Council's position on the fire union. He needed to explain it and he did. The statement provides the public needed insight into the other side of the current CBA negotiations.      What a beautiful day it was, until the news about Prince.

Mayor Butler is a pimp. I didn't realize until today that it was Addison all along. Make no mistake, Butler will pay for his treachery in the next election. But until there is a change in the city managers office we are all doomed.

Its not the manager, its Slye. He runs the city and has had it out for the fire department for years.

Mayor Butler just sealed his fate as a one term mayor via his comments about the fire department. Pretty funny that a white collar banker lectures blue collar union workers about wage fairness. Butler won the election with firefighters and their families support and he will loose the next one without it. Enjoy it while it last Joe, because you will be FIRED in the next election! And Jennings and Macaluso might just join you.

The Mayor forgot to add the city manager and a few other department heads who don't live in the city to his public shaming performance. What's good for the goose...

7:52: Don't give me that old blue-collar/white collar BS. Not to be crass, but your "blue collar" union president lives in a city home assessed at a much higher rate than the 'evil capitalist' mayor does. Quit the class warfare crap. This isn't 1950, and the city needs to address the fiscal issues relative to 2016!. And BTW, if this level of fire protection is so necessary, than why do the vast majority of firemen live outside the city, exposing their families to a lower level of protection??

The guy just screwed you all! Jennings made the mistake of coming after you during the election. You let Joe, along with his buddy Todd, run you around by your noses..Hows is it feel Todd? you thought Jeff Graham was coming for your pockets!

re 7:52
Well if the city ever has a major hotel fire, apartment building fire or or a block fire in a large residential area I'll be looking for Addison and Butler to be suiting up and ready to enter into action. You are right about it not being 1950. There are far more large populated buildings to be taken care off.

Oh, and get ready for your insurance to go up once the big insurance companies realize Watertown is not up to state mandate code with fire protection. Didn't hear that from Slye, Addison or Butler did you?

I don't know about that, as Watertown's population was much higher in 1950 compared to today (34,000 vs 27,000-- and I could guarantee few if any houses had smoke detectors back then). And if that insurance canard is true, why do most fireman live outside the city where they presumably they are paying more for insurance???

918.. What planet are you from. If something like that happened you would call in many many mutual aid companies and most of them will be volunteers.. Then you can hang your head in shame. The money you make is obcene. The work you do based on a work day is minimual. You spend and spend on trying to protect your turf but how many of you give of yourself to help your city.. Oh... I forgot most of you live elsewhere.
