ODDS AND ENDS

The Times Union warns us Convention system harms democracy ........a good summary on the dilemma of selecting competent judges..........and El Diaro has Spitzer Tapping Latinos for state gov’t "In their efforts to assemble a new gubernatorial team, Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer and Lieutenant Governor-Elect David Paterson have recommended three Latinas for state offices.
We support the focus on identifying strong leaders. Latinos not only have the expertise and vision to drive progress in New York, but should be in positions to shape policies in a state, and nation, with a growing Latino population. " The 3 Hispanics mentioned are The gubernatorial team will nominate Lorraine Cortes-Vazquez to serve as Secretary of State, Another nominee is Gladys Carrión. In line to serve as the Commissioner of the Office of Children and Family Services, and finally The gubernatorial team will also recommend Priscilla Almodóvar for appointment as the President and CEO of the New York State Housing Finance Agency (HFA).

and Fred Dicker from the New York Post has come up with his own political Naughty and Nice List MAKING A LIST: WHO'S BEEN BAD OR GOOD IN ALBANY The losers this year are.."Nassau County Executive Tom "Kamikaze" Suozzi, who actually thought he could defeat Eliot Spitzer" ............"an entire political organization - the state GOP - which had its worst year in three generations by losing every statewide office. " ............."disgraced Alan Hevesi" ..........you get the picture.....but the real winners of 2006 will be the voters of new york...who elected Eliot Spitzer as their next governor.........and Dicker lets us know REPUBLICANS NEED NOT APPLY FOR HEVESI'S OLD JOB: SILVER ......nothing wrong with that........andy
