Spitzer: Postpone that Hearing!

“While I strongly support development at the Atlantic Yards site,” Attorney General Eliot Spitzer wrote in a letter to the Empire State Development Corporation, “… I believe it is appropriate that the public hearing associated with the DEIS, that is now scheduled for August 23, 2006, be postponed for at least 30 days.”

A candidate for governor can say what he wants about development projects, but he can’t say no to opening up the public process, right?
