I can’t believe that it’s already 2017! Frankly 2016 could have been a lot better but I suppose it could have been a lot worse. So I am compelled to give my predictions which are given for three reasons. Some I really DON’T want to happen so I put the double whammy on them by predicting something that I fear. Or, sometimes I predict things that I want to see happen so I predict them to make them happen, a little positive energy. Or, and this is a big or, I predict things that I really think will happen. It’s up to you, dear readers to decide which is which.

New York lawmakers are considering whether to have a special session this month to vote on, among other things, a pay raise. It would be their first pay increase in about two decades. Governor Andrew Cuomo has listed items he’d like to see passed if there’s a session, including term limits for legislators. But the Assembly Majority Leader says that item is likely off the table, because most Democratic members are against it. Cuomo also wants to enact reforms, including converting to a full-time Legislature and strictly limiting outside income, following recent corruption scandals that have resulted in prison sentences for the two former legislative leaders.

Well, the die is cast. The election is over and now we have to live with the results until 2020. My best guess is that those who have differences with the incoming President will have to make adjustments. From where I'm sitting, WAMC is one such adjustment. We have a budget that hovers around $7,000,000. About $419,000 comes from the federal government. Because of you, I am not worried. Our fund drives are marvels. It has always been true that the rougher things are, the more we all end up pulling together. That really is the story of WAMC from Day One.
