The New York Times
Nick Confessore writes: “Backed with millions of dollars in contributions from business, the Committee to Save New York has been Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s most important ally in his battles with public-sector unions over government spending, pensions and teacher accountability.”
Hakim & Bagli report: “Now that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has abandoned his dream of building the nation’s largest convention center at the Aqueduct racetrack in Queens, he is handling multiple offers from the gambling industry to develop a combination casino and convention center at other sites around New York City.”
Benjamin Weiser notes: “At the June 19 retrial of City Councilman Larry B. Seabrook, federal prosecutors may seek to characterize the defendant as a liar or a cheater, as they had in the first trial. What they cannot do, however, is simply refer to him by only his last name.”
