Legislators: We Want Ravitch
February 25th, 2010
“Given the critical and timely nature of the budget negotiations, I would urge him to turn over responsibility for the budget and day-to-day negotiation on the budget to Lieutenant Governor Dick Ravitch,” Krueger told Benjamin.
Sen. Neil Breslin told the Gazette on Tuesday, before the scandal broke, that he thought it was appropriate for Ravitch to take the lead on negotiations, given the governor’s relationship with the legislature.
“If the governor let the lieutenant governor negotiate on his behalf, he would be very well served,” said Breslin.By David King on February 25, 2010, 11:32 am
