Reform from Rochester

We missed this editorial in Rochester's Democrat and Chronicle praising the new initiatives being pushed by Rochester's Citizens for Better Government in New York.

As the editorial notes, CBGNY has grown from 6 to 200 activists in a very short time, underscoring the frustration felt in the Rochester region over the state's continuing failures.

We congratulate CBGNY on its tremendous efforts and accomplishments in just two years, and we echo the closing sentiment of the Democrat and Chronicle editorial:

Finally, it can't be said enough that legislative leaders have too much power. Yes, the Albany powermongers loosened their reins slightly last year, but not nearly enough.
