Mellow gets another 25 years in office for landing the Med School.
Thats the way it works in NEPA, isnt it?
Bob Cordaro thought he was getting
another term for bringing the NY
Yankees to town, too! Mellow is pushing the envelope recently according to what I read. Paying yourself rent is probably an old political trick and he's worked them all it appears. In office since 1971 is just too long and outside interests are too great for this man to continue. Thanks for your service, Bob. Now shove off! At least to another office.

Your missing the big picture. Bob sits on the Senate Banking and Insurance Committee. He collects a salary for sitting on the NEPA Blue Cross Board of directors. He sits on a board of an industry that he should regulate.

Who gave the big money for the med school to open? Blue Cross anyone? Did they offer you a rebate in premiums???
