New York City Mayor elect Bill de Blasio recently spoke at the BALCONY/Greater New York Chamber of Commerce Expo on Small Business
November 6th, 2013New York City Mayor elect Bill de Blasio recently spoke at the BALCONY/Greater New York Chamber of Commerce Expo on Small Business. Here de Blasio is joined by Lou Gordon, BALCONY Director; Alan Lubin, BALCONY Co-Chair; and Mark Jaffe, President of the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce.
Robert Reich says "The biggest game-changer, though, is Bill de Blasio, the mayor-elect of New York City."
"Pundits who are already describing the victories of Terry McAuliffe in Virginia and Chris Christie in New Jersey as a "return to the center" of American politics are confusing the "center" with big business and Wall Street."

October 28th, 2013Dear Friends,
Now that America has finally gotten past the government shutdown, it's time to look forward to rebuilding our Nation and our State. BALCONY supports the passage of a federal farm bill that would provide food stamps to the millions of needy Americans and New Yorkers. We remain concerned that the social safety net, which includes Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits, which are all preserved in its current form by Congress.
We urge our fellow New Yorkers to support the constitutional amendment to expand casino gaming in New York, which would provide needed jobs in economically struggling regions of upstate New York. BALCONY further invites you to visit the New York State of Health website to determine if you are eligible for the Affordable Care Act, and to participate in its benefits.
This BALCONY October 2013 Report provides insight from our various members, including labor unions, businesses and non-profits on key issues facing our State. We thank you for your continued attention to these issues.
We ask you to continue your support of BALCONY, and our key non-profit partners, including Medicare Rights Center, Community Healthcare Network, WhyHunger, Strong Economy for All Coalition, DEMOS, American Diabetes Association of Greater New York, Fiscal Policy Institute, Institute For Leadership, Metro New York Healthcare for All, EffectiveNY, NYCOSH, Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State, and the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce.

As our politicians search for new revenue streams, including considering higher taxes on the top 1%, perhaps it is time to look at all possibilities. Although gambling is constitutionally banned in New York State, provisions and amendments passed over the years have stripped the ban of any real meaning. However, full casino gambling is still not permitted. We must amend our State Constitution to allow for full casino gambling in New York State.

It’s back. Another manufactured budget crisis. Another threatened government shutdown. Another failed negotiation.

Report from Northeast Business Group on Health highlights problems employers face in finding solutions and identifies program elements necessary for future success
NEW YORK, November 4, 2013 – Cost and prevalence make obesity one of the top health challenges for employers and they need help figuring out how to implement programs that work, says a report released today by Northeast Business Group on Health (NEBGH). The report, “Weight Control and the Workplace,” cites as key findings the need for individually-customized instead of generic programs, and the importance of including employees in designing and rolling out such programs. Findings are based on a collaborative examination of obesity’s toll on the workplace by 15 executives from large employers and health plans, facilitated by NEBGH.

Restoring the River Café and the Water Club
by Gina Bellafante, NY Times
Last year on the evening of Oct. 29, Michael O’Keeffe — Buzzy to virtually everyone who knows him on two continents — had devised a plan for how he would proceed. High tide was scheduled to arrive at Fulton Ferry Landing in Brooklyn, the site of one of Mr. O’Keeffe’s businesses, the River Café, around 9 p.m. He would stabilize the barge that housed the restaurant, deal with whatever potential repercussions he could, and then get in his car and travel up Third Avenue to 30th Street in Manhattan, where another one of his enterprises, the Water Club, also sat on the East River’s edge. High tide was set to arrive there at 9:56 p.m.
