I am fairly leary of typing Nancy Cantor's name on my blog, click here for why that is so. But I found another letter to the editor that makes a good point.
If the constituents in Syracuse were asked, "If you found out that Jim Walsh had secured $2 million dollars for development of the SU corridor project, would you be pleased and support him?"
I think that the answer to that specific question would be yes.
Now, let's rephrase that.
"If you found out that Jim Walsh voted in favor of cutting student loans, money to the chronically ill, and the food stamp program, and shifted $2 million dollars of that money to pay for the SU corridor project, would you be pleased and support him?"
It's all our money. What are you in favor of? Pork projects for wealthy universities, or pork dinners for those in the projects?
We know Jim Walsh's response.
