Who among us hasn’t thought that they could do a better job managing NY’s money? While I’m sure this task is far more difficult than managing my household budget, I still wouldn’t mind taking a crack at the state’s fiscal focus.
It sounds as if Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith wants to give us arm-chair economists our chance. Smith is setting up a Web site, e-mail, phone and text options for New Yorkers to share our ideas on how the legislature and governor should spend $120 billion.
Here are those contact details. Plans are also in the works for a Twitter page. Stay tuned for that when it becomes available.
