    What is our Governor taking or smoking? He obviously has been away from NYC in the Hamptons too much, like Al Gore was from Tenn. Long Island was developed using the GI WW2 Bonus benefits enabling the purchase of homes, to avoid the overt discrimination of hiring and housing in Manhattan and even designating certain ethnic groups for certain NYC civil service jobs. Robert Moses built the parkways to facilitate the migration to Nassau and Suffolk. Bill Shea led the fight to have a baseball/football stadium in Queens. Mario as Sec’y of NY State was confronted with middle class and overt ethic discrimination causing the ethnic and economic ghettos of Queens, and just destroyed the small real estate companies. It was Eisenhower that offered NY construction of Interstate highways, assisted by the rabid support of the car by Bob Moses for work in Manhattan and living on the Island or Westchester. When Mario became Mayor he built 12 prisons in upstate, housing 47,000 inmates mostly African American that he considered economic development of Upstate NY. Now he wants to construct railroad tracks for trains that are never full to capacity and build more trackage for trains that will have few users but receive government subsidies and continually raise fares. Obviously, this is a great gift to the construction and real estate industry. Cuomo ignores that there is actually rail right of ways to provide express transit to JFK. The infrastructure funds must be used to restore our quality of life with economic development suitable for the specific region of our State. This does not include sports betting, legalized pot, or casinos worthy of public support. When NYC was going to get thousands of Amazon jobs what did Cuomo do wrong? Can the ego of Cuomo be trusted?
