A Watervliet man is representing the Capital Region nationally as a competitor and cast member on the CBS tv show 'Survivor'!

Reported by the Times Union, Pat Cusack, a maintenance manager from Watervliet, is going to be a past of the 37th season of 'Survivor.'  Technically, he's going to be on "Survivor: David vs. Goliath", the title of the upcoming season, where there are two teams.  According to the Times Union, Pat is part of the "David" team, a group of people who have overcome adversity in their lives.  I'm already a fan of this show, so it's great to see a Capital Region resident competing.  If there's anyone I know who can work hard and deal with all types of circumstances, it's the maintenance guys! Every setting I've worked with, they deal with all types of stress, frustration, and crazy hours.  So here's to hoping that the experience helps- good luck Pat!
