Immigrant Advocates Aim To Influence Midterm Elections

Thursday, May 27, 2010

As the Obama administration continues to step up immigration enforcement, advocates in New York and elsewhere are pushing harder for reforms that are more friendly to immigrants without legal papers. And with midterm elections coming, the debate is gaining intensity. People on both sides of the issue agree that the federal government has done too little to fix a broken immigration system. But the two camps have very different ideas about how to fix it.

In Choice of Running Mate, Cuomo Sends a Message to Unions

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

It was just 24 hours after the debut of the "New Democratic Party" signs up here at the site of the party's convention in Westchester. Attorney General Andrew Cuomo was in midtown making public the results of his first critical deliberation as a candidate for governor.

In choosing Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy as his running mate, Cuomo got a career cop who evidently turned around the city of Rochester by restoring public integrity, improving municipal services and cutting taxes. But that's not all.

Center for Public Integrity:  Cuomo Plan Gets a “B”

And that’s a good thing.  When it comes to ethics disclosures by legislators, New York is hardly a beam of sunshine.   Under the current law, legislators have to disclose information about outside employers, but don’t have to say how much they are paid, or who their clients are.  Nor do they have to say how much investments or real estate are really worth.   So right now, CPI gives New York a “C” for its disclosure laws, behind Hawaii and Lousiana (!) but slightly ahead of California.  In his policy “book” (link here) Cuomo proposes disclosure of client lists and “any and all outside income [elected representatives] receive.”  That would be a significant “ouch” for legislators like Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, arguably the most powerful man in Albany right now – and also a successful lawyer.

That would move New York to a “B,” if enacted.

Cuomo on Education – Race to Efficiency

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

WNYC’s transportation guru Andrea Bernstein has already commented on the true brevity of Andrew Cuomo’s “New NY Agenda” despite the fact that it takes up about 250 pages. The wide margins and generous spacing do, indeed, resemble a high school student’s creative attempts to fulfill a term paper requirement.

Race to Be the Next Attorney General: Meet the Candidates

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

WNYC

This week’s New York State Democratic State Party Convention delegates will weigh in on which one of five fellow Democrats they want to see replace Attorney General Andrew Cuomo as the state’s top law enforcement officer. The opinion of presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Cuomo will loom large. If one of the AG contenders gets 51 percent, they win the party’s designation. And anyone who garners at least 25 percent is qualified to get their name on the September primary ballot. Short of those two options, Democratic contenders would have to get 15,000 signatures from around the state to get on the ballot for the primary.

Cuomo's Policy Plan: Big Book, Wide Margins

Monday, May 24, 2010

WNYC

Andrew Cuomo's press office touted over the weekend his 252-page briefing book.

"The book lays out a bold vision for reform and action on the serious issues and challenges facing our state," the press release says. If past is prologue, Cuomo will be making many references to his policy book in the months to come. It's a way to give heft to his ideas and lend credibility to his campaign.
