EDITORIAL: Cuomo's speech left many questions


Niagara Gazette — It’s true that Cuomo spoke at some length about upstate, acknowledging the great need for economic development. But the programs he outlined — the establishment of non-Indian casinos and the creation of innovation “hot spots” — are not likely to land on our doorstep any time soon. And some of his least-detailed intentions — such as a coordinated marketing plan that is meant to help promote dairy products — were those aimed at upstate. 

We’re not naive enough to think that our region is a top priority for the governor. But as we’ve said before, he is governor of the whole state, not just the metropolitan areas and tourist destinations. If the governor is truly committed to the success of upstate, he’s going to have to do a little better than he did in his State of the State address.
