Jude Seymour (WWNY) has an interesting article (click here) on how Senator Ritchie has now reneged on yet another campaign promise.
Many readers recall that during her campaign run, Patty made a big issue (click here) about how State budget plans to rein in STAR rebate check spending was unacceptable. Flash forward to her current position (click here) and you can see that her passionate defense of the homeowners was more like rhetoric reserved for the campaign trail. She stated that STAR had to be left intact, but she is pulling back on that campaign promise. Apparently it's much easier to make campaign promises than to pass legislation.
