The Buffalo News is the only Western New York news organization with its own full-time reporter, Tom Precious, in Albany -- relentlessly keeping tabs on how taxpayer money is spent and shedding light, every day, on how decisions are really being made.
On Sunday, Precious offers an in-depth report on the largely unknown players driving politics, policy and money at the Capitol. It's the governor and legislators who get their names in the papers. But behind them are people who regularly wield tremendous influence. Meet them on Sunday, exclusively in the Spotlight section of The Buffalo News.
