Front page: 10.05.10 - I too regret missing out on 'Mad Men' and T-12 hours until the budget arrives!

Good morning!

Some fresh ink on the Saratoga Springs 2011 Comprehensive Budget, which will be revealed at tonight's 7 p.m. City Council meeting. Last year layoffs and a tax increase were the order of the day. The budget is adopted by default if it (or an alternative) are not approved by Nov. 30. [Saratogian]

Plans to open the Guardian House transitional housing facility for homeless female veterans are shaping up as the Saratoga County Rural Preservation Co. (SCRPC) will receive a $212,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for the project. Saratoga Springs Supervisor Joanne Yepsen is a founding member of the SCRPC Guardian House committee. [Saratogian]

Supervisor Yepsen is running against Sen. Roy McDonald this November. She will be in the office today for an editorial board meeting. You can post any questions you would like me to ask here. [TU]

Local public servant John J. “Jack” McNulty Jr. was posthumously honored at a ceremony in Green Island yesterday. [The Record]

Budgets have been announced in Clifton Park (no town taxes or layoffs) and Wilton (no town taxes, over 700,000 needed to balance budget). [Gazette, Post-Star]

State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli and his challenger this Nov. Harry Wilson held their first debate last night. Both candidates have not seen AMC's "Mad Men". [TU]

Was "Have you seen 'Mad Men'?" an actual question posed by moderators? I would've asked if they thought Lady Gaga's next album will be a referendum on the state of LGBT rights in the U.S., or I would just ask where the state's money goes at night. Just sayin'.

Yepsen and Chris Gibson in meetings today, post your questions here, call 583-8729 ext. 219 or email
