Election Year Politics

The Albany Zoning board voted against approving two new Charter Schools. As you know Charter Schools are quite controversial and much of the public is against them. But they also are backed by people with very deep pockets. And if we know one thing its that the zoning board and Mayor Jennings are known to side with anyone with deep pockets. And whenever the issue of charter schools comes up on the Mayor's radio show he really dances around the subject. Try calling and getting him to state his position.

This is an election year so perhaps the plan is to delay the new Charter Schools until after his re-election?
