City & State – Is Cuomo Killing the Democratic Party?


My latest City & State column assesses Gov. Cuomo’s cynical alliance with the WFP:

“The Cuomo fils brand may in the long run weaken and bankrupt the state Democratic Party far more than his father did at the end of his 12 years as governor in 1994. In doing so, Cuomo may well leave the Democrats in the thrall of the WFP.

That end would be the most ironic kicker in the history of New York State politics.”

    Michael: Please don’t be too surprised…it’s me! Crystal Paris. Boy, I have tried to connect with you on Linked-In and filled out what I thought were the correct selections…but it would not “send”.
    So I have just gone on a Michael Benjamin journey thru all your sites. When I landed on your January 1014 speaking engagement at Union Grove…I was enthralled. Great presentation and it should be heard again and again…particularly as a message for Fathers’ Day. Back to my attempt to connect on Linked-In. Perhaps you could send an invitation to me and let’s see if it works that way. I want to tell you and your wife about a pre-production Off Broadway stage play that is seeking “angels.” It’s the producer’s 2nd play based on her recently published book: You’re Not My Mommy – Warnings from a Ex-Stepmother” by Donna Jarrett.
