its done, thank you Syracuse
We did it. We have a Democratic congressman representing Syracuse.
After Walsh resigned, and the economy (and Bush) imploded, it may have been inevitable that a dem would take the district. But Dan Maffei is not an ordinary politician. What he lacks in charisma, he makes up for in integrity and intelligence. I know this because I literally grew up with the guy at Levy middle school and then Nottingham HS. He is unusually curious and diligent; a good person who people can be proud of as their representative.
Congratulations CNY, and cheers to a new beginning.
