From NY Times:
"Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s budget director mounted a blistering attack on Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s proposed state budget yesterday, asserting that it would create an $862 million shortfall in the New York City budget for the fiscal year that starts on July 1."
So is Mark Page (budget director for the city) right? Has the governor gone to far in cuts to the city for the benefit of upstate. While I am not the biggest fan of the mayor, I do respect Mr. Page and believe he is telling the truth in this situation and being very cautious about the spitzer plan.
And speaking of chutzpah, the personal-injury law firm of Weitz & Luxenberg -- also known as Shelly Silver's employer -- isn't exactly keeping its head down in the circles of government, or at least on their desktops.
Try Googling "Eliot Spitzer." The advertisement on the right addresses "NY Mesothelioma Sufferers."
