Re: “Cuomo deserves our vote

City is hopeless. You present yourself as some kind of objective truth squad for the media and then you go and gloss over or simply lie about what any non Republican does. Cuomo violated the NY constitution in order to pass the SAFE act, but that's ok because City can't bring itself to defend any aspect of legal gun use in NY, or really anywhere. If Pataki had strongarmed, bribed and made up new rules to ram through one of his pet projects, City would have rightly blasted him for it. No mention of the 400,000 and rising NY residents who have fled the kind of laws and policies Cuomo and City endorse. He might create some jobs in new tech that has failed before, but he certainly has driven out thousands of jobs and business thanks to the SAFE act, but that's ok with City because all those businesses and jobs were related to legal firearms. The day City examines the utter failure of NY gun laws to stop Illegal gun crime, will be a first. I'd love to see the video of someone asking the 3 staffers who wrote this, to describe what is required to own a handgun in Monroe county.
He 'bolstered' food industries? LOL, yeah ask any landowner about the rising property taxes thanks to mandates from Albany via NYC. I'm not a paid reporter like Jeremy, Tim and Christine, but even I know that the $2 Billion school technology effort has 2 parts that would interest your readers. First the payments by the state for any iPads, etc, that upstate might receive from this debt will be over an EIGHT year period. Maybe City is still using some 8 year old computers, but most people don't. Especially people who are training someone for the latest operating systems and programs. The other part of this new debt that might interest City is the fact that part, maybe a large part of the debt is to repair NYC schools. I keep hearing how well NYC is doing, how they really support upstate and then everyone at City along with the rest of us get to rebuild NYC schools that we will never see.
Some would read the Womens's Equality Act as the countries most extreme late term abortion law, but that's the way City always covers abortion. Never a mention of how to handle tragic medical emergencies as exceptions instead of what ever you want to call killing a healthy baby girl or boy. Bill Clinton emphasized the idea that we as a country ought to work harder to make abortion rare. I guess that's not 'militant' enough for many.
When NY state spends millions and years to 'study' fracking and when we are next door to PA where thousands of fracked gas wells are producing gas, is it really too much to ask to expect City to be critical of this Gov for not releasing the NY fracking study? Oh right, the report might support fracking and the objective, looking for the truth, City can't have that.
You really want to mention Sandy? Just because other NY outlets can't be bothered to ask why billions of that aid aren't accounted for, is no reason you guys shouldn't wonder why that effort is still incomplete years after the event. I suppose politicians have to sort out their priorities before they act, but a lot of people suffered unnecessarily because of more talk than action before, during and after that storm. Cuomo ought to receive his share of blame for that instead of you touting him as 'responding well to natural disasters.'
NY state is dead last in too many categories to continue to blow smoke for liberal theories, but it is fun to pretend the problem is the right instead of actually looking at things like, how effective was the ballistic fingerprinting law? What is the crime rate of police in this state vs NY permit holders? Come on, at some point even the most die hard, far left, liberal at your paper must have a moment where you think the propaganda is just not right. You advance this world by being truthful, NOT by pushing a lie or shouting a half truth. You are one of the last surviving print outlets, please do your job better.
