T.G.I.F - Paul Male considers retirement, GloFo expected to have positive impacts on Cap Region

Happy Friday everybody!

If you haven't already, take a look at the videos from Tuesday's City Council meeting. There are statements from Pat Kane and Remigia Foy, Mayor Johnson's rationale for his appeal proposal, and the council discussion and vote.

In the headlines this morning; City engineer Paul Male is considering retirement this year, thoughts he said have nothing to do with a recent lapse in his registration as a professional engineer. [Srtgn]

Sen. Roy McDonald stopped at Quad/Graphics in Saratoga Springs yesterday on a tour of district businesses. [Srtgn]

GlobalFoundries Fab 8 plant in Malta is expected to bring "positive impacts" to the Capital Region. [Record]

In Albany; new reports show how Senate Democrats overspent their budget last year. [CapCon]

Governor Cuomo has proposed a bi-partisan redistricting panel. [WXXI]

And finally; "Tatiana", come on down to the beautiful Spa City for Travers Day 2011! The Price is Right contestant won a VIP trip to the city along with a trip to Scotland and a sailboat.

Check out the full episode (what I'll be doing immediately following this post) online here.

The chip plant will have a very positive impact on jobs and commerce. Why is it that our tax bills are not decreasing and probably never will?

Patrick,if Mr.Male did not have his engineers' liscense for 2/1/2 months which is about $25,000 in salary why was he still being paid,why did Civil Service approve his pay? If a city employee loses their drivers' liscense they don't get paid for driving a vehicle,they have to take a drop in pay, it seems to me that should also apply to Mr. Male,why is Civil Service asleep on this one?
