Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner is getting attention from her broadside against Governor Cuomo's budget and his approach to pension reform. Columinists are hearting the first term mayor, who says she intends to remain in her post as State Democratic Co-chair.
Whether right or wrong in her criticisms, Ms. Miner cannot afford to back down. She needs to deliver her message that on matters of mandate relief and pension reform, the Governor should double down and not just look at 2016.
The party hacks and various caucuses who "stand with" whomever they are supposed "stand with" want her scalp, and while I don't know her beyond a brief handshake last year, I like her attitude.
Go Orange !
