We Had Some Issues

The city of Albany played host to one of five EPA hearings for public comment on the Bush administration’s proposed changes to the Clean Air Act; Aaron Mair and the local chapter of the NAACP filed a lawsuit against the Albany County Legislature, forcing it to redraw gerrymandered voting district maps to provide adequate representation for the county’s growing minority population; the Albany Housing Coalition, which runs Tyler Arms Veterans home at 688 Madison Ave., found itself battling the mayor and the commissioner of public safety after allowing recovering drug abusers to stay in the building while seeking a permanent home; Albany Council members Dominick Calsolaro, James Sano and Richard Conti and Common Council President Helen Desfosses received a plaque from the NYCLU commemorating their efforts toward passing a resolution opposing the Patriot Act; Patches, a local homeless man, expressed his support for the “bottle bill,” a state legislative proposal to expand required nickel deposits to water and juice bottles, a measure that would bring some $300 million into the state’s coffers.
