Monday is fundraising night in Albany

Feb 14, 2017 12:02 am

Casey Seiler at Capitol Confidential asks the question: Is it possible for one person to attend all the legislative fundraisers scheduled to take place in tonight in Albany? The answer is "yes," if you have a healthy bank balance and strategically chart your course. Seiler writes that clustered legislative fundraisers have become a regular occurrence in downtown Albany every Monday. The cost of attending all nine events last week totaled $4,350; this week the price was slightly less, at $4,100. On Mon., Feb. 13, the evening began at at the Fort Orange Club with two Republican events for state Senators Bill Larkin and John Bonacic, and ended at Dawn's Victory Sports Cafe with a party for Staten Island Democrat, Assembly member Michael Cusack. In all, seven of the nine fundraisers will support GOP incumbents; two of the shindigs were for Democrats. Read the full story at Capitol Confidential, a Times Union blog.
