In yesterday’s Syracuse.com/Post-Standard, reporter Michelle Breidenbach anticipated the first meeting between Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and Governor Andrew Cuomo “since their public back-and-forth over the governor’s proposed pension smoothing plan.”  It was to have happened last night at the executive mansion in Albany during a meeting of state Democratic Committee leaders.  So how’d it go?  We will ask Mayor Miner this morning, as well as discuss with her the financial future of Syracuse.

Assemblymember Donna Lupardo and Senator George Latimer have an idea about how to cut costs as the state starts planning how to administer the new tax rebate program.  They will both be here to outline their proposal.

Anti-fracking activists & housing reform advocates have found common ground in their support of public campaign financing.  What’s the link?  John Armstrong from Frack Action and Jaron Benjamin, of the Metropolitan Council on Housing and a leader of the Real Rent Reform campaign join us to explain.
