NEW YORK?STATE: Questionable choice for new commission

Another commission has been formed by state Gov. Andrew Cuomo. This one is targetting tax relief for residents.

One of the co-chairs of the commission? Former state Gov. George Pataki.

Yes, the former governor who was in office as the upstate decline accelerated. The same former governor who was synonymous with late budgets. And, that same governor who increased spending and borrowing annually.

With a glowing list of achievements like this, it sounds as though Cuomo just appointed one of the people most responsible to the state’s major problem. Good luck with any progress on this one.
