Green Times 18

Hmmmm...

I was just thumbing through the transcript of Monroe County Executive Maggie Brook's State of the County address, and I counted 18 "greens." I did not count the number of times she said "sustainable,"" renewable," or "clean."

So, I'm left wondering...is Monroe County really a leader when it comes to being green? Or are we just on that green wagon, trying to look greener than everyone else? Is this political "greenology" or the real thing?

I'll try to get an answer to that question on this week's Need to Know. Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy will be joining me as well. We might be talking about red, as in an estimated $17-million city budget deficit.

Need to Know airs on Friday at 9 p.m. and Sunday at 12:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV, Channel 21, Cable 11. You can also listen to the program on WXXI-AM 1370 on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
