Stratton Going to State

This reporter is ready to report that Schenectady Mayor Brian Stratton will be heading to the arena of state politics with an appointment from Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Through a source knowledgeable about Schenectady and state politics, I believe that Stratton will be replacing a popular commissioner, which is why the governor's office's official position (through Josh Vlasto) is that they will neither confirm or deny.
Stratton's name has been bouncing around in the administration recently, but it hasn't been clear whether he would be heading for a temporary task force or something more permanent. It appears he will be heading to something more permanent....
Not that it means anything, but former Congressman Mike McNulty was in the Capitol on Monday, but we doubt that has much to do with anything.
