Astorino: $15 Minimum Wage is Quintessential Cuomo
March 29, 2016
A $15 Minimum Wage is Bad for New York


What's happening in Albany this week is quintessential Andrew Cuomo.

Everything's bluster. Everything's political. And nothing's thought through.  

The governor knows a giant minimum wage hike is bad for New York.  He's said so himself -- many times.  And so, too, does the legislature.

Yet here he is championing the largest minimum wage increase in state history to curry political favor with the left, even evoking his father's name in the process.

But there's a problem with The Mario Cuomo Campaign for Economic Justice, as he calls it.

It's a mess.
Don't take it from me: Listen to the non-profits, the farmers, the healthcare industry,  small business owners, school districts and local governments -- particularly upstate but ... also in the suburbs  They're all using the same word: Disaster.

Andrew Cuomo's $15 minimum wage would wreak havoc on their industries, and most ironically -- and tragically -- on lower wage employees, especially young people, minorities, and seniors back in the workforce -  who will lose hours or lose their jobs outright.

So now the governor is in damage control, setting different rules for different industries and different wages for different areas of the state, and throwing in massive taxpayer subsidies to buy off constituencies.

Immediate Release
Patrick Ziegler,


McGrath, Julie Killian, Chris Davis, and Chris Jacobs Pledge to Introduce Term
Limit Bill for New York Officials

York--March 28...
Republican state senate candidates also planning to run on New York's Reform
Party line this year, including Chris McGrath, the candidate in the upcoming
April 19 special election for an open state senate seat on Long Island (NY-9),
have publicly pledged to introduce term limits legislation in Albany if elected,
the New York State Reform Party today announced.

The other three candidates are Rye City Councilwoman Julie Killian, who is running
in the 37th State Senate District in Westchester County; Christopher Davis who's
running for the 44th State Senate seat in the Albany area, and
County Clerk Chris Jacobs who is running for the 60th State Senate District.

The Reform Party was created as a ballot line by supporters of Republican
Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino in his race for governor in 2014. Its principal positions are replacing Common Core with a better educational
curriculum devised at the local level and term limits for state office holders.
Mr. Astorino term limited himself to three terms as county executive in 2010.
The Party also supports stripping pensions from elected officials convicted of
crimes involving their public duties.

"Term limits are coming to New York State one way or another, and the Reform Party is thrilled that four leading state candidates are pledging to put in a bill," said Reform Party spokesman Patrick Ziegler. "The only way we can truly change the culture of corruption and insider dealing in Albany is to change the players, many of whom have been there for decades. Term limits will do that."

The Reform Party announced last week that it will only consider endorsing candidates
for state office in 2016 who will demand an up or down vote on term limits in
the New York State Assembly and the New York State Senate this year.

If Mr. McGrath wins the April 19 special election, he will immediately take office.
