Gotham Talk Radio Now on 620AM Guest: Senator Greg Ball

Gotham Government Relations’s dynamic duo is back at it. David Schwartz, Esq. and Brad Gerstman, Esq. are hosting Gotham Talk Radio on Wednesday nights from 8pm to 9pm on 620AM, and each week they feature New York elected officials. Last night’s featured guest was State Senator Greg Ball, whose district encompasses the Hudson Valley area and all of Putnam County. Beyond recent news that Senator Ball called Mayor de Blasio’s municipal ID card proposal the “de Blasio terrorist empowerment act,” listeners got to hear more about the true, self-proclaimed “red-blooded American.”

Senator Greg Ball grew up living on the Kennedy estate, where his parents were caretakers. He had a travelling petting zoo, and to this day, loves animals and outdoor activities.

UNIVERSAL PRE-K

Discussed the multi-billion dollar investment in universal pre-kindergarten in New York State – which albeit is a steep investment. “What are we teaching these kids, calculus?” Schwartz joked. When asked his opinion on funding, Senator Ball replied, “when you’re in a hole, its time to stop digging.”

NY JOBS FOR HEROES

Senator Ball’s legislation, the NY Jobs for Heroes program, sets money aside for returning war veterans. It has passed repeatedly in the Senate, but not in the Assembly. We will see what may change since Governor Cuomo announced his support for the bill in his State of the State address on January 8, 2014.
