Hawley buys NY flags for Assembly colleagues

This information is from a news release from Steve Hawley.

On July 1, Assemblyman Steve Hawley closed out the 2010-2011 Legislative Session by giving New York State flags to his colleagues in the Assembly.

Earlier in the week, Elba Town Supervisor Lucine Kauffman, and her husband Bill, took a tour of the State Capitol arranged by Assemblyman Hawley.

Upon reaching the Assembly Chamber, Supervisor Kaufmann and Bill were surprised to find that in addition to the American flag, many of the members' desks included flags of other countries and social causes, but there was not one New York State flag.

With that in mind, Assemblyman Hawley purchased New York State flags for each of his Assembly Minority colleagues, and several of his colleagues in the Majority, to go with their American flags.

They serve as a reminder that although this year was a banner year for dysfunction and fiscal mismanagement in Albany, the legislature should still show pride in our home - New York State!

I'm not surprised there were no state flags - our legislature doesn't really give a damn about NY - just keeping their underachieving butts in office (which won't happen). That goes for BOTH sides of the aisle. How many minutes was it after they received their flags until they left for their holiday with NO progress on the budget. If we keep these incompetent people in office we deserve what we surely get - nothing - except ever higher taxes and even more wasteful spending.

Bob, While no fan of the budget or the process, to be fair, the Assembly did finish their part. It is the State Senate that went home without finishing their job

John, to be fair, they did a pretty crappy job of it. Bob is right, all should go.

Dave, I am not arguing that they did a bad job. I just wanted to point out at least one side finished up.
