Your thoughts on the governor spending enough time in Albany:

Answer: No."I'm not satisfied with basically anything the governor does." -Brian B., Schenectady

Answer: No."I work for nysdot and ome of the main complaint is that he does not stay around the capital. As well as if it was up to him,he would make nyc the capitol.Also he has to take care of NYC because thats where all his votes came from." -Mike C., Albany


Answer: Yes."The Governor’s schedule seems balanced, with adequate time spent in Albany. Besides, technology and media make location less important today. Our Governor makes his presence felt across the miles." -Gary D., Brooklyn


Answer: No."HE should govern more from Albany rather than spending taxpayers money globetrotting all over the state to run for president as an unannounced candidate, to do what papa Cuomo didn't have the cahones to do himself." -Anthony, Eastchester
