Cuomo Reax

24 May

The New York State Democratic Convention will be  – well, convening – in Rye Brook this week.  Chances are good that WNYMedia.net will head downstate for some nominating action, although that’s a lot of driving for dull speeches and foregone conclusions.

I wanted to highlight a few reactions to Andrew Cuomo’s gubernatorial campaign announcement:

1. The Brennan Center is cautiously optimistic, and pleased that some of the changes it has been advocating for have made it into Cuomo’s plan.

2. The Albany Project discusses the desirability of having a policy wonk as governor.  Specifically, there’s this book that Cuomo put out (.pdf, 224 pages), detailing his plan for New York.

3. Cuomo’s campaign logo is … unwieldly.

4. Cuomo’s pledge to reform New York’s campaign finance “system” is familiar and repetitive – time will tell if anything actually comes of it.

NB: A 224-page book is greater than being mad as hell.

    Just what we need, a policy wonk who sowed the seeds for the housing bubble during his tenure as the HUD Secretary.

      I can’t tell if the anti-Cuomo forces who are continually pushing this line of attack are shameless liars or utterly ignorant.
