The following link is to an editorial in the Kingston Daily Freeman decrying the way that outgoing members of the "dysfunctional legislature" in Albany are being appointed to important executive posts in the Cuomo administration and state government generally.
Jack Mc Eneny was co-chair of the Legislative Task Force on Reapportionment and Demographic Research (whatever that means!), in common parlance the "Redistricting Task Force", which did such an awful job that a federal court stepped in to completely replace their work with its own. He has announced that he will not seek another term as legislator, and so has the current Assembly Majority Leader Ron Canestrari. Both of these gentlemen live and work in the Capitol District and if they're appointed next spring to important executive positions in state government, can we then say "the fix was in"?
