If you happen to have an issue with my remarks about New York, you're more than welcome to talk about it with me instead of talking about me in a backhanded manner to others. I was born in New York and I spent a large portion of my life as a resident of New York. I lived in Plattsburgh, White Plains and Schenectady and I have dozens of family members who've lived in New York their entire lives, in various parts of the state. We discuss various issues that affect New Yorkers. I care deeply about NY and I consider it my second home, so please do not dismiss my point of view on NY simply because you don't like my political stances and because I currently live in Washington. Those two things have nothing to do with my level of knowledge or understanding of where I'm from. You should know the difference.
