Statement by John Tkazyik on the withdrawal of

Jim Coughlan from the State Senate Race


“So now we have a contest between two—Sue Serino, Albany’s hand-picked candidate, and me, the only one that the Albany bosses have not yet been able to drive out of the race.  I have news for the Albany bosses. I believe the people of the Hudson Valley are smart enough to pick their own Senator without the help of three men operating in some dark room in the bowels of the Capital. I am not going away. The trouble with newest hand-picked candidate is that she sounds, votes and acts just like the Albany politicians. She proclaims that she voted against the energy tax, yet she voted for a budget that contained the tax. Just like Albany politicians claim to be against taxes, then vote for budgets that contain new ones; claim to oppose the SAFE Act, then vote for budget that funds a gun registry; claim to oppose unfunded mandates, then vote for budgets that contain unfunded mandates. I think the people in the Hudson Valley have had their fill of Albany double-speak. I intend to prove it.”

"Governor Cuomo should make good on the promise to create an education tax credit in New York this year.  It would help thousands of low-income students get a solid education, and it would encourage more and more New Yorkers to contribute toward that effort. What's at stake is important; let's not allow it to become a political football.  I call on Governor Cuomo to make this bill a priority and to pass it before June is out."

Cox calls for investigation of Cuomo over WFP bribery
Contact: David Laska
ALBANY... NYGOP Chair Ed Cox today called for an investigation of Governor Andrew Cuomo for soliciting a bribe from the Working Families Party - their endorsement - in exchange for promising political favors.
According to New York State penal code:
"A public servant is guilty of bribe receiving in the third degree when he or she solicits, accepts or agrees to accept any benefit from another person upon an agreement or understanding that his or her vote, opinion, judgment, action, decision or exercise of discretion as a public servant will thereby be influenced.    
"Bribe receiving in the third degree is a class D felony."
It has been widely reported over the last twenty-four hours that Andrew Cuomo has offered his support for legislation and other matters favored by the Working Families Party in exchange for the party's endorsement.
"Andrew Cuomo's backroom dealing with the Working Families Party represents the worst of Albany," said Cox.
"That Cuomo's actions are cynical and unethical are without question. Whether or not they constitute actual bribery is worthy of an investigation, and I call upon the proper authorities to begin one as soon as possible."

Cox: Cuomo sells out to de Blasio
Contact: David Laska
ALBANY... NYGOP Chair Ed Cox tonight released the following statement in response to Andrew Cuomo winning the endorsement of the Working Families Party:
"By accepting the Working Families Party endorsement, Andrew Cuomo just sold his soul to Bill de Blasio and the radical New York City left.
"We already know that Andrew Cuomo's election year ads claiming that he is 'pro-business' and 'bipartisan' are nonsense, but this seals this deal.
"There's no doubt who runs Andrew Cuomo: he just became a wholly owned subsidiary of Bill de Blasio and the radical extremists of the Working Families Party."
Earlier today, Cox called for an investigation of Cuomo for accepting a bribe from the Working Families Party, their endorsement, in exchange for political favors.

"The real Andrew Cuomo just handed the keys to New York to a bunch of radicals hell-bent on increasing taxes and spending, which will force out more middle class families and jobs to other states.  I will put an end to this tax madness and bring New York back into the winning column again."

Will Sean Patrick Maloney Support the Administrations Cap-And-Trade Scheme?
Maloney Will Have to Decide Between Saving Jobs or 
Filling His Campaign Coffers
WASHINGTON - Today, Environmental Protection Agency Chief Gina McCarthy, unveiled the Administration’s costly and job-destroying carbon limit rule. Now, Sean Patrick Maloney will have to decide between saving the economy and jobs or supporting the President’s liberal cap-and-trade scheme for political gain.
In a recent study, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that the new cap-and-trade scheme could cost the U.S. economy $50 billion a year and eliminate an estimated 224,000 jobs. This is coming on the heels of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's recent press release stating the economy “decreased at an annual rate of 1.0 percent in the first quarter.”
“Unfortunately for New York families, the Democrats' new cap-and-trade scheme will take more money from their pockets,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Instead of ensuring New York families have more fiscal stability, Sean Patrick Maloney will fall in line along with his Democratic allies as he is in the political fight for his life this November.”
Sean Patrick Maloney will have to decide between saving the economy and jobs or political gain.

"This is what Democracy looks like"

That's what AG Eric Schneiderman said about the last-minute backroom deal Andrew Cuomo cut with the Working Families Party on Saturday night.
Yes, New York's top law enforcement official said, "this is what Democracy looks like" in reference to one of the most undemocratic things to happen in New York politics in recent memory.
Call it Cuomonian politics, call it a quid-pro-Cuomo - just don't call it Democracy.
In case you missed it, the Working Families Party almost dumped Andrew Cuomo in favor of an insurgent liberal candidate at their convention on Saturday night. Cuomo saved himself with a last minute deal: he promised a $10 million slush fund for Democratic Senate candidates and public support for a slew of liberal legislation favored by the Working Families Party.
That's clearly unethical, but it may also be criminal. On Saturday, Chairman Cox called for an investigation of the WFP's bribe of Cuomo, citing section 200.10 of New York State penal code.
At the very least, Cuomo's deal with the WFP is a tacit admission on his part that his campaign ads casting him as "pro-business" and "bipartisan" are laughably inaccurate.
Tom Precious of the Buffalo News described the ramifications of Cuomo's deal:
"If the governor gets his way, it would mean the offices that wield the power in Albany on legislative and fiscal matters - the governor, Assembly and Senate - would be dominated by Democrats with downstate home addresses."

Cox to Cuomo: Reveal natural gas meeting details immediately
Contact: David Laska
ALBANY... NYGOP Chair Ed Cox today called on Andrew Cuomo to reveal details of multiple meetings that took place between the leaders of Cuomo's hydraulic fracturing review team and Cuomo's top political advisors.
Gannett's Jon Campbell released an explosive report yesterday based on documents released by the Department of Health after a Freedom of Information Law request. The documents were heavily redacted: even the subject of the meetings was not disclosed.
According the report:
"During a key period in New York's review of hydraulic fracturing, the commissioners in charge of the analysis met with two of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's top political advisers..."
"From the start, Andrew Cuomo has said that the State's process of reviewing natural gas development was based upon scientific considerations rather than political considerations, and from the start, Andrew Cuomo has not been telling the truth," said Cox.
"If he has been telling the truth, he should release all of the details of meetings between his political advisers and the natural gas study team.
"The only conclusion we can draw from the Cuomo administration's heavy redacting of the released documents is that Andrew Cuomo is hiding his capitulation to the special interests that have robbed New York of the chance to take part in a billion dollar industry that supports a quarter of a million jobs in Pennsylvania."

R.O.I. By Frank J. Rich
Let's Advertise, but Where?
Advertisers may be getting smarter or just more courageous in commenting just how poorly much of their "digital" media spending is falling on deaf ears. Either way, smarter is the result. 
Before we get our knickers in a wad, this is no indictment against the use of digital media. But like all things, the choice of "marketing" tools has its place.
For SMBs (small and medium size businesses) there is growing awareness that Facebook's changing Edgerank algorithms are yielding less and less from posting and "like" drumming than most realized. Not unlike Google's system for ranking search results, dictating what content will appear at the top of each user's news feed based on a sliding scale of relevance, Edgerank algorthims have meant declining "post and like" responses from consumers, according to reports. Broken down, every piece of content is an object and every interaction with said content is an "edge;" hence the idiom "Edgerank."
If brands were to produce vast amounts of content, typical users would be overwhelmed by it as they attempted to connect with their friends. It could dissuade those users from liking certain pages that post a lot just so they appear more in a feed. It isn't just large brands that aren't reaching their audiences; small businesses are feeling the hurt as well. The decline in posts is now reaching, on average, less than 10% of followers across all businesses-large and small.
How does it make you feel to know that 90 percent of your target audience will never see your latest message? And the real effect on SMBs is yet to dawn on this group that may not be aware of Facebook's tinkering with their algorithms. It's a little like a soup on high that has boiled all of the flavor out of its ingredients.
Recent moves by Time Magazine and others to place advertising on hallowed ground, heretofore reserved for editorial, has many wondering over the obvious-is advertising really so important to consumers' decision-making, or are advertisers such as Time hurting so badly that help is anywhere you can find it?
Expanding the ad hole is, well, what every media product has always sought to do; so what's all the fuss? Advertiser-supported publications selling advertising space to advertisers, magazines and newspapers have always put editorial up for sale.
Called "native advertising," it is content that looks just like editorial and is surrounded by editorial but is created for or by an advertiser, usually with minimal disclosure--ads as stories.
The goal is the same: the publication's credibility and the reader's trust might move to the advertiser. It's what publications have always done ... because ad supported media needs the money.
The appeal of a borderless fan base may have more advertisers spending their marketing dollars elsewhere, such as on search. But for local businesses and brands as well, the ROI on print remains the best bet. Print is a browse media that warms the senses more than all other media forms, and so, relates more easily to the reader.
When in consumer mode, the reader, who spends the overwhelming majority of their disposable income locally, naturally finds the goods and services they need within a short walk or car ride.
The nine tenths of those who don't "post or like" on company Facebook pages are the ones responding to print advertising, the biggest delivery system in the marketplace. In the end, everything is advertised, even messages warning of its evils. Why? Because it works.

Albany, N.Y.6/02/14 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) welcomed former SeaWorld killer whale trainer, John Hargrove, to the State Capitol during last week’s Fourth Annual Animal Advocacy Day. John Hargrove, who was recently featured in the documentary “Blackfish,” joined Senator Ball and Assemblyman Tedisco in Albany to speak in support of Senator Ball’s “Blackfish bill.”

The legislation was introduced after the documentary “Blackfish” highlighted the captivity of Tilikum, an orca whale who has been in confinement for the past 30 years. The documentary shows how large marine animals can develop health issues and become agitated from living in the confined spaces such as aquariums and sea parks. If passed, the legislation would  ban the possession and harboring of killer whales in New York State aquariums and sea parks.

“We are very grateful for John Hargrove’s support of our 4th Annual Animal Advocacy Day. John’s testimony and insights in support of our ‘Blackfish’ bill were greatly appreciated and have helped raise awareness for this important cause,” said Senator Greg Ball. “The documentary ‘Blackfish’ opened a lot of eyes to the conditions orca whales are often subject to when they are held captive. These are huge, intelligent and majestic creatures and it is an atrocity that they sit captive in oversized tubs. We want to send a message as a state that we will never allow this type of cruelty in New York.”

“I am grateful that people in influential positions like Senator Ball and Assemblyman Tedisco care about this issue and are taking it to another level. I believe that at the end of the day, this is how we will stop SeaWorld and this outdated practice of enslaving these majestic, supremely social and intelligent animals that are truly suffering in captivity all for profit and exploitation,” said John Hargrove.

A petition in support of the legislation has received over 10,000 signatures. To sign the petition visit:
