RUSSELL: NORTH COUNTRY WILL NOT LOSE OUT ON COMPETITIVE FUNDS--118th Assembly District representative Addie Russell told 99 News Friday in response to the idea of competitive grants for education and economic development in Governor Cuomo's "State Of The State" address, that the North Country is more competive than people think it is, and that 'many times we will be first place, not second.' Senator Joe Griffo says there needs to be a baseline of aid for areas like this that lack resources to keep the playing field level with more urban areas that have more talent and cash because of population. Russell agrees, but she believes the North Country will impress the competition many times over.
