Last week we asked Empire Page readers if aid to education should be included in the cuts necessary to balance New York’s budget. Surprisingly 72% of those who voted think it should be included while only 20% do not. Gov. Paterson will attempt to get the Legislature to agree on some means of bridging the $3.2 billion deficit this week.
This week we’re asking readers to tell us whether they support US Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to try the alleged mastermind of 9/11 and his colleagues in New York City. The announcement on Friday resulted in a rash of negative reactions, although I’m not sure I understand why. It seems to me that New Yorkers would want the trial held in the city where the greatest death toll and destruction took place rather than in some remote location. So, it will be interesting to see how the Empire Page readers vote.
