There is even more to March 14th’s Dispatch, "Budgeting" by Victor Maltsev.
It should be no surprise to anyone that Governor Andrew Cuomo continues to walk away empty handed after meetings with President Donald Trump to make his case for the proposed Gateway Tunnel project.
Cuomo ran for another term against Trump in 2018. He spent millions on television advertising portraying Trump as an ultra-right wing conservative whose values will destroy New York.
After winning reelection, he goes to Washington hat in hand to meet with Trump about the $29 billion Gateway Tunnel. He wants Washington to pick up half the tab of the $13 billion needed for phase one.
The governor came away with a photo op, but no money.
