Kruger Going Home (Updated)
July 15th, 2009

Sen. Carl Kruger just told a group of reporters that he is going home. Kruger said he is frustrated with negotiations over school governance and sees no reason to hold session this week. Kruger said he doesn’t want to be part of the “circus.”

Kruger said he expects to be back in his district later today.

This leaves Democrats with 30 or less senators–Sen. Daniel Squadron is on his honeymoon. Kruger hinted that other senators might follow his lead.

Kruger suggested session should resume in a few months when the Senate will take up the escalating budget deficit.

Kruger said that without the Assembly in session negotiations over mayoral control can’t take place.

I checked the hall, the Assembly isnt back. There is nothing we can do, that we can negotiate on because the Assembly isnt here, Kruger said.

Update: I just asked Sen. Hiram Monserrate about Kruger’s descision. Monserrate said he has nothing to say about it.
