ALBANY —- State Sen. Darrel J. Aubertine, D-Cape Vincent, will be named chairman of the New York State Legislative Commission on Rural Resources, the Daily Times learned late Tuesday afternoon.
Senate Majority Leader Malcolm A. Smith, D-Queens, will make a formal announcement of the appointment and the commission's agenda will be made at a Wednesday afternoon press conference at the state Capitol in Albany.
Mr. Aubertine, as chairman, "will transform the commission into an engine for substantive public policy initiatives for which the primary function is the economic revitalization of upstate New York," according to a statement released by the Senate Democratic conference.

The JD spin:
Congrats Darrel. Those Senate Republican naysayers, and their local busom buddy P-IV, who blow hollow invective at you at every turn will have a tough time dirtying you up after this giant feather is placed in your cap. Keep on keeping on Darrel! We love ya.
