Just pathetic. And all these people actually were willing to put their names and reputations on this.
What, no mention of Gianaris removal from Public Authorities Control Board?
"Come back Mr. Bezos! We got rid of Gianaris! Please baby come back!"
In a stunning offer to get the Amazon deal back on track, Governor Andrew Cuomo joined dozens of business leaders, unions, and elected officials who published an open letter in the New York Times asking the retail giant to give the Big Apple a second chance.
Even though Jeff Bezos and co. may have landed a Valentine’s Day sucker punch, Iron Mike Tyson Cuomo isn’t close to throwing in the towel. He’s launched an all out campaign to woo the company back to Long Island City.
“You punch until you hear the bell, and the bell hasn’t sounded,” the governor said. “Until somebody rings the bell, I’m going to keep pushing.”
“At this point they are irrelevant because there are other ways that the state can get it done, and I told Amazon that,” Cuomo said.
I presume Andrew Amazon told them that in those initial secret meetings and Bezos still abandoned the city and notably the entire HQ2.
Well, well, well. There it is, Queens. The governor doesn't give a shit about the state senator and the city councilman's constituents. Which also happen to be his constituents too. This should show why the subways and highways are the way they are and how they got worse under Mario's arrogant son.
