Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah: The Editors wish all our Readers and their families a joyous Holiday Season. We were without power and heat for 2 days due to a storm outage. They fortunately were restored last evening. This caps an eventful year in New York politics. The brothers Cuomo both attempted comebacks. Chris launched a nightly news broadcast. Andrew after toying with another campaign now hosts a podcast. Hochul narrowly defeated Zeldin in the race for Governor. He came within 5 points of what would have been an historic upset. He is credited with flipping 4 congressional seats red which gave the GOP control of the House. Pay to play schemes besmirched Hochul. Letitia James abandoned her race for Governor and then came under scrutiny in her top lieutenants harassment scandal. All in all it was a jarring time for New Yorkers. Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. It is anyone’s guess what the New Year will bring !!
