Bloomberg's priority for Albany

Monday, December 06, 2010 - 06:07 PM

"The first job of state legislature and governor-elect Cuomo, I think, more than anything else, is to reform the Board of Elections,"he said.

A spokesman for Cuomo emailed me this response: "Governor-Elect Cuomo will review the Mayor’s proposals and looks forward to working with him, the federal government, and others to increase voter participation."
