the way the wind blows
As the annual NYS Black and Puerto Rican legislative conferance arrives in the State capitol this weekend, you will be able to tell which way the wind is blowing regarding the new governors Budgetary efforts! And you can bet that it will be the main topic of discussion at all the workshops , receptions, luncheons, and dinners! I fully expect the Goverbnor to be on the ground there with a presence. because simply put ,the political wind that will come out of Albany this weekend will be one that can billow the sails of the new governors ship of state, or it will be a wind that will create the most stormy of seas! And in these most treacherous of waters which is the NYS Budgetary session it will be necessary for All hands to be on deck as it were! This weekend is the Biggest political weekend of the year in NYS! where the political alliances that are needed to pass the budget will be forged, or where the political cabals that will scuttle it plan in the shadows. The way the political wind blows.You will be able to gauge it this weekend in Albany NY, and for the fledgling ship of state that is the New Cuomo Administration I hope it catches a political sail wind and not a headwind! Because it must get out of port, not remain landlocked as the Obama ship of state is or as the Patterson ship of state was! A lot is riding here, and it is imperative that Gov Cuomo insures that, coming out of this legislative weekend ,the wind is in his sails and beneath his wings!!!
