Re: “We’re not making a dent in our high poverty rate

I believe many people are working to address the needs of people in poverty. If we are to continue to take action we'll have to see more of these reports. It'd be best if we didn't take each individual report as an indictment of the effort to solve entrenched poverty. Repeated calls to action are the job of the media. This article, however, has no reference beyond the ACT report and the ACT advisory committee chair. Unless you count the disgust of the author that action hasn't been taken. It's useful to review these reports when they come out, but repeating the same calls for action dulls the senses and makes the problem seem intractable. I'd like to see a response from someone who has had success in this area. Maybe include it in the next ACT article. Most likely it'll be very similar next year.

Re: “Downtown development misses prime parcel

Weird comment from a city council member about lack of parking downtown as the reason to extend a contract. Isn't this national bike to work week? Let's all acknowledge the UR wants to hold the parcel until the right price comes along to close. The city watches out for its top employer, just as it always has.

Re: “The future and the race for the Cuomo Billions

More money will not help city schools unless they hire lots of folks in the city and pay them a good wage. Social engagement and a willingness by the haves to associate their children with the have nots will solve this problem; new schools, new administration or new teachers won't solve this.
