Silver’s Last-Chance Fund-Raiser

If you’re free Friday afternoon — and you have $25,000 to spend — you can drop by Tavern on the Green and sponsor a table at Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s fund-raiser.

The invitation, sent along by a reader, is sure to draw anybody with a rooting interest in what gets passed in Albany. And the timing of the event is perfect, coming just as session is winding down and deals are likely to be made on all of the legislature’s unresolved proposals on issues including congestion pricing, gay marriage, legislative and judicial pay raises, campaign finance reform and non-partisan redistricting. To name a few.
