A mere four days after Election Day, Eliot Spitzer will be headed to Puerto Rico to take part in a post-election getaway hosted by the New York State Assembly Puerto Rican/Hispanic Task Force.
At the conference – which takes place from November 9 to 14 at the Intercontinental San Juan Resort and Casino – Spitzer is expected to talk about higher education.
The itinerary is here.
Another highlight should be a panel about economic development — moderated by indicted state Senator Efrain Gonzalez and Council member Larry Seabrook, who had an interesting way of getting money from the city’s Campaign Finance Board.
Gonzalez was invited to moderate “way before anything happened,” explained the chairman of the group, Assemblyman Peter Rivera. He also pointed out that Gonzalez has “moderated it for years.”
