Keeler Show Notes for Wednesday, October 5th, 2016
Wednesday, October 5th, 2016
6 AM Hour
Toronto wins the AL Wild Card, 5-2 over Baltimore. The Mets and Giants go at it tonight. And, thoughts on last night’s vice presidential debate.
Keeler has uncovered a story about misappropriated funds in Herkimer County. It doesn’t appear there was any wrongdoing, just miscalculations. Some municipalities received more funding from the county than they should have, some received less. We hope to speak with Herkimer County Administrator Jim Wallace this morning. \
Peter Franklin the Gabby Cabby checks in. He did not watch the debate last night but wants to talk about the NY corruption/ziti scandal.
7 AM Hour
Former NY gubernatorial candidate and current Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino reacts to the report that Governor Cuomo and Governor Christie colluded on the Bridgegate scandal – story here. Astorino is calling for both to step down. And, he has strong words of praise for congressional candidate Claudia Tenney.
John Zogby reacts to last night’s vice presidential debate. Tim Kaine had more substance by Mike Pence won with style, he says:
Tauni wins $100 with our FREE Money Question of the Day from the Hobika Law Firm. What century was the apple seed introduced to the United States? – Answer is 17th century.
And, Keeler recaps the issue of misappropriated Herkimer County funding. We’re told the formula was incorrect and some municipalities received more than they should have while others received less. We’re still hoping to hear from county administrator Jim Wallace.
Steve Greenberg from the Sienna Research Institute talks about a recent poll on the NY-22 Congressional District – full results here.
