“Governor Cuomo has raised nearly twice as much in his first full year in office as former Governor Spitzer did,” Mahoney writes. (Bill’s cash raising comparison is after the jump.)

Not only did Cuomo raise gigantic but the Committee to Save New York, the group of business and real estate interests formed to back Cuomo’s policies has set records with their fundraising.

“New lobby filings indicate that the Committee to Save New York spent $2,130,792 in November and December. This brings their annual total up to $11,898,400, the fifth highest total in modern New York history,” writes Mahoney

    Thanks for the tips on credit repair on all of this site. The things i would advice people is usually to give up this mentality that they can buy at this moment and pay back later. Like a society we all tend to make this happen for many things. This includes getaways, furniture, plus items we want. However, it is advisable to separate one’s wants from all the needs. While you’re working to fix your credit score actually you need some trade-offs. For example you possibly can shop online to economize or you can look at second hand merchants instead of pricey department stores pertaining to clothing.
