Griffo looking for specifics

Joe Griffo is watching Albany from the inside the state Senate for the first time. Griffo was elected in November to represent the district stretching north from the Utica area to Massena. He succeeds his fellow Republican Ray Meier, who stepped down to run, unsuccessfully, for Congress. Like Meier, Griffo came to the state senate from the office of Oneida County executive. Before that, he was mayor of Rome for three terms. Griffo is one of only two new Republicans joining the majority in the Senate; this week he was named chair of the Senate Election Committee. He also will serve on the higher education, environmental conservation and energy committees, among others. He was in our studios yesterday. He told Martha Foley he's encouraged by the new spirit of cooperation in Albany, and new initiatives to reform ethics laws and the budget process. But he's looking for progress on specifics.  Go to full article
