The Ulster County Chamber Breakfast was packed. For an institution that often features speakers in the majority or executive leadership, it was nice to hear from intelligent voices from the minority to get the other perspective.
Mark Molinaro and Pete Lopez spoke on the issues that face the state and the hopes that our new Governor holds fast to his intent to change the way Albany does business. 

 It was a light review of the way the Assembly works considering noone in the audience needed much review, but I have to say some of the questions prompted spirited debate. Questions about "School Funding" and "Mandate Relief" were touched as was the ridiculous cost of replacing even a small bridge over Broadway in Kingston. 

 Legislators in attendance were Fred Wadnola, Terry Bernardo and myself. 

 To the Chamber leadership and staff, congrats on another successful event!
