Albany, NY, Mar 13, 2013 — New York Agriculture Commissioner Darrel Aubertine finds a lot to like in Gov. Andrew Cuomo's vision for the state.
The governor's State of the State and budget messages in January put farm country squarely under the administration's economic development tent. Cuomo called the agriculture sector of the economy "vibrant," with growing yogurt, and wine, beer and spirits industries.
And he said there's much more to be done to promote and market New York products.
Aubertine toured the region recently to talk about the budget. He sat down with Martha Foley.
(03/12/2014) Hundreds of prison guards, many from the North Country, rallied yesterday outside the Capitol in Albany, demanding that Gov. Andrew Cuomo cancel a plan to mothball four state prisons in July.
