A new poll finds that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is well positioned to win re-election next year, but there are some weaknesses in the governor’s generally positive numbers.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is appointing a new tax cutting commission that he’s charged with finding ways of slicing state revenues by $2 to $3 billion dollars next year.
Cuomo turned to the man who beat his father in the 1994 governor’s race, George Pataki, to co chair the commission. Pataki, a Republican, defeated Mario Cuomo on a platform that included tax cuts.
Pataki, who says the state “spends too much and costs too much,” says he’s happy to serve on the commission, but at first thought a mistake had been made.
