A $500 Million 'Shot in the Arm' for the Region

Remember when Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Syracuse won the "Upstate Hunger Games?"

This $500 Million shot in the arm from the  New York Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI) helps with economic development in the area.

Kevin Schwab from Centerstate CEO stops by NewsRadio 570 WSYR talk about this, and how the impact of new industries like drones are impacting our region?

We also ask Kevin why on one hand we are one of the highest cities per capita for poverty in the nation, and at the same time there's talking about economic development and the potential that it has for the area?

So who are we, and how do we reconcile those two distinct issues?
