A Syracuse University political science expert says the maneuvering by Onondaga County Republicans to keep a ballot line open in November without naming a candidate could work for and against the party.
Professor Grant Reeher of the Maxwell School of Citizenship says it is a bit unusual, and could also be risky:
Onondaga County taxpayers will be spending $2 million more this year on projects meant to keep rainwater from flooding the sewer system. The County Legislature approved the money for additional “Save the Rain” projects…even though the program has its own budget.
President Barack Obama riled up a cheering, mostly supportive crowd with a message that he's ready to make it easier to go to college, in his first visit to Syracuse. Obama repeatedly made the case foe the importance of a college education.
"There aren't a lot of thing more important than making sure people get a good education. That is key to upward mobility; that is key to a growing economy; that is key to a strong middle class."
