Tue, 09/28/2010 - 10:00pm - 11:00pm

Capitol Pressroom's Susan Arbetter speaks with RGRTA's Mark R. Aesch tonight.

On Tuesday, September 28 at 10 p.m. on AM 1370, the Empire Page’s Peter Pollack returns with a review of Vincent DeSantis’ “Toward Civic Integrity”. DeSantis, a city court judge in Gloversville, lays out his vision for the renewal of cities like Gloversville, NY which have fallen on hard times. In a related idea: There is a place where the spheres of public transportation, economic development and upstate New York all collide into a fantastically powerful & galactic force called Smart Growth. Could that place be in … Rochester?? Mark R. Aesch, CEO of the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority joins us to talk about the future of that city.

Steve Greenberg of the Siena Poll drops by to discuss the latest numbers on a few key State Senate races.

And where does the Democratic AG Candidate stand on gun issues? We’ll be joined by Democratic AG candidate Eric Schneiderman, who shares his position with us.
