Upstate, downstate NY flatlining in latest annual Census estimates.

PBA demands parole board redo hearing for cop killer’s release. Governor Cuomo, you said you disagreed with the ruling – despite the fact that the parole board members are all you appointees – and the fact that you say your hands are tied – the PBA request is a way to review the matter and at the very least postpone Harman Bell’s release. Keep this coldblooded cop-killer in prison – send the right message to all: if you kill an officer of the law, you will spend the rest of your natural life in prison. We stand with the PBA and Sen.
