Update from the inbox: Saratoga Citizen to meet tomorrow, Gibson opens Saratoga Springs disrict office

City charter change group Saratoga Citizen will meet tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the Saratoga Springs Public Library on Henry Street.

"This meeting will mark the beginning of the THIRD Year of our efforts to explore governmental reform in Saratoga Springs," writes organizer Pat Kane in the email release on the meeting. More information can be found at the group's website or by emailing

Congressman-elect (for another few hours) Chris Gibson announced he will open a district office in Saratoga Springs at 513 Broadway, across from the City Center.

"Having a District Office in Saratoga Springs will help to make certain that local residents in the area have a place to go where they can express their views on legislation pending in DC and can also get help with personal matters involving the federal government,” Gibson said in a release.

Also, Accounts Comm. John Franck called me from Gloversville to give me a head's up on Albany's push for voluntary 2 a.m. bar closings. [TU]

He said he thinks Troy is looking into the same measure, and I'd venture a bet that he brings it up at tonight's City Council meeting; public hearings start at 6:45 p.m., meeting proper at 7.
