Unfriendly in Albany

That Shelly Silver and his long memory.

He welcomed Mike to the fight for city education money today with a letter, Capitol Confidential reports, that included this line:

“While we are certainly pleased that Mayor Bloomberg has decided to join us as an ally in our fight, it is hard to understand why he has chosen not to get involved until now and why even today, he will not join us in publicly calling upon the governor to drop his appeal of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity lawsuit.”

Also on the Albany blog today: an obscure challenger for Hevesi and former Lieutenant Governor candidate Dennis Mehiel heading the fundraising for the State Senate Democrats.
