Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters yesterday that he won't weigh in on the New York City mayoral primary after receiving multiple questions about Public Advocate and Democratic mayoral frontrunner Bill de Blasio's plan to raise taxes on the wealthy to fund school programs. "I am going to stay out of the New York City mayoral," Cuomo said. "Let's find out who the mayor is and what policies they actually put forth, and then let's take a look at them and consider them, and we'll have an opinion." De Blasio, who has a long relationship with Cuomo, has publically pressured Cuomo on plans to save a number of failing Brooklyn hospitals. Cuomo has avoided major appearances in the city this summer--including the West Indian Day Parade. Cuomo has held numerous events upstate and in Western New York. Some pundits see Cuomo's reluctance to engage in the race as a way for him to avoid having his name associated with the likes of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer. Cuomo told reporters yesterday that things aren't that complicated. "I'm not registered to vote in New York City, so I don't think it's a situation where it's appropriate for me to express a preference."

Today's Lead: Council Showdown on Stop-And-Frisk http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/08/22/todays-lead-council-showdown-on-stop-and-frisk http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/08/22/todays-lead-council-showdown-on-stop-and-frisk

The City Council is scheduled to vote today on overriding Mayor Michael Bloomberg's vetoes of two bills designed to restrict the New York Police Department's use of stop-and-frisk. A bill that would create an inspector general to oversee the New York Police Department is expected to be enacted today but the second measure that would increase the ability to sue the NYPD for racial profiling is less likely to become law. The second bill initially passed with 34 vote--the minimum number needed to override a veto. If one council member is convinced not to vote to override the veto will stand. Members have been targeted by Bloomberg and police unions on the issue. Council President Christine Quinn said at a mayoral debate last night that she expects both overrides to succeed.

Today's Lead: The Brooklyn Hospital Crisis http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/08/02/todays-lead-the-brooklyn-hospital-crisis http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/08/02/todays-lead-the-brooklyn-hospital-crisis

Yesterday Interfaith Medical Center in Brooklyn filed a request to close in bankruptcy court. Most of the patients the hospital serves are without insurance and the hospital has suffered greatly since the state slashed Medicaid reimbursements. Unless there is some sort of bailout the hospital will close its emergency room in September and close totally in November. The news comes as Long Island College Hospital in Cobble Hill is on the verge of closure. Public Advocate and Democratic Mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio has made the hospital issue a focus of his campaign and has gone to court to keep LICH open. He has also released a plan that would create a super-authority to oversee Brooklyn Hospitals that would be run by the mayor and governor. De Blasio has continued to press his long-time friend Gov. Andrew Cuomo to act to save the hospitals. Meanwhile, the Cuomo administration holds out hope that the federal government will approve a request to use $10 billion the state saved from restructuring Medicaid payments to buoy the Brooklyn hospitals.

Today's Lead: Cuomo's Storm Recovery Program http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/07/19/todays-lead-cuomos-storm-recovery-program- http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/07/19/todays-lead-cuomos-storm-recovery-program-

Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled a new plan to get storm-ravaged communities to work together in planning their futures during his NY Rising: Storm Recovery Conference in Albany yesterday. The 102 communities impacted by flooding across the state will be eligible for up to $750 million in combined state and federal aid. “What does the community think is the best approach to rebuild?" asked Cuomo. "And what are the best ideas and what is the best vision and let’s fund the community’s vision rather than ask the community to fit in the template that’s established from up above.” The Cuomo administration unveiled a website designed to help communities apply for the program and to find out how much recovery funding they are eligible for. You can watch a video of the conference here.

Spitzer Collects 27,000 Signatures

Eliot Spitzer filed 27,000 petition signatures with the Board of Election last night in his bid to get on the Democratic line for New York City Comptroller. Spitzer announced his run with only 4 days left to file signatures. His opponent, should at least 3,750 of his signagutes stand up to scrutiny, Scott Stringer filed 100,000 signatures. Stringer's camp and allies areexpected to mount challenges to some of the signatures. Spitzer's campaign paid some signature seekers $800 a day leading up to the Thursday deadline. Experts think Spitzer will make for interesting news for quite some time to come.

Down to the Wire For Spitzer

Eliot Spitzer has until midnight tonight to file 3,750 signatures to get on the ballot to run for comptroller as a Democrat. Spitzer is reportedly paying canvassers $800 a day in an attempt to hit the magic number. Spitzer's opponent Scott Stringer has already filed 100,000 signatures and his supporters will likely challenge a number of Spitzer's signatures. A new Wall Street Journal Poll gave the Spitzer campaign a boost--it shows that Spitzer leads Stringer 42 to 33 percent in the Democratic primary.

Spitzer in Albany: Good at Making Enemies

Eliot Spitzer made a lot of enemies in Albany with his agressive, uncompromising style. Experts say Spitzer could give the next mayor even bigger headaches and Wall Street should watch out too. “I pity whoever is the next mayor because, with the powers of comptroller, this guy is going to be on the mayor’s case on a daily basis,” Baruch College political science professor Doug Muzzio said in an interview this week. “This office is a stepping stone and he’s gotta step on the mayor.”

Today's Lead: Spitzer's Frenzied, Expensive Campaign http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/07/10/todays-lead-spitzers-frenzied-expensive-campaign http://www.gothamgazette.com/index.php/the-eye-opener/entry/headlines/2013/07/10/todays-lead-spitzers-frenzied-expensive-campaign

Eliot Spitzer's entry into the city comptroller race continues to reap headlines. To meet the tight petitioning deadline he's left himself, the scandal scarred ex-governor is paying canvassers $800 a day each. He needs 3,750 registered Democrats to sign by tomorrow at midnight. Some say his pitch to aggressively retool the position will remind voters of his "steamroller" image. Others point out that the office already wields significant policy powers. His stance against public financing seems to have shifted, or was at least the victim of a frenzied campaign that left him disorganized. He spent a lot of time during political exile in real estate, which brought him quite a bit of wealth.

Eliot Spitzer began his campaign for comptroller at a circus-like appearance at Union Square yesterday. His wife has yet to join him on the campaign trail. The Democratic party and business leaders have mobilized to oppose his candidacy. Scott Stringer, who has been the frontrunner for the seat so far, was caught by surprise by Spitzer's entry.
