WEEKEND DEBRIEF: ‘Redo’ on local budget, health officials frustrated with contact tracing, and digital advertising (podcast)

As Thanksgiving approaches all eyes are on the regional situation, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to play out at full-speed. Governor Andrew Cuomo got into a verbal spat with reporters on Wednesday — prompting criticism in some circles.
