What an obsequious weasel this guy is....The Syracuse City Council member who took it upon himself to apologize to Governor Cuomo because the Salt City's suddenly feisty mayor spoke against the Cuomo pension "smoothing" plan, calling it a "gimmick." Tough talk, especially in the hegemonous Democratic Party of NY.
Stephanie Miner took to the NY Times and Capital Tonight to give voice to sentiments no one else dared utter.
Democratic hacks are aghast and Council Member Patrick Hogan hopes to run for mayor. His slithery performance in trying to suck up to Eagle Street doesn't make him likely to win.
Mayor Miner is up for reelection this year and her spat with the Governor brightens her star politically and expressing her concerns was a refreshing turn towards free speech again in NY politics.
Anyway, if you appreciate the mayor's gutsy move, you can help out her reelection bid at www.minerformayor.com
