Last night the bedrock of American politics was rocked. Regardless of your party affiliation you need to be energized with the fact that the tax paying public has had enough of the business as usual, self-importance approach of governing. For Massachusetts, a state that hasn't elected a Republican senator in 30 some years, to elect Scott Brown to a senate position that has been a Kennedy stronghold should send shock waves through every house of government from coast to coast.
Residents of Troy this year will have the opportunity of voting for representatives for each house of government at the state and federal level and for governor. Its about time our elected official listen to and follow through by conducting what is right for the people. Our State government is dysfunctional on a good day and it appears those at the federal level are more concerned with pleasing special interest groups, who in return aid them in reelection.
Somebody(s) need to take office with the real intent of curbing spending and the costs taxpayers bear each year. We need people with enough political courage to take on government, NYS government has grown too big and bureaucratic. A "tune up" is long over due.
Thank you Massachusetts for putting these politicians on notice and drawing a line in the sand. In November, New York is next...
