Spitzer and 1199

 Spitzer and 1199

I found this photo last night on the Flickr page set up by Eliot Spitzer’s campaign. It’s from 2005 and but it takes on a certain added poignance now that the governor is about to launch half-million dollars’ worth of ads against 1199 SEIU and the Greater New York Hospitals Association over his plans to reduce health care spending.

On a related matter, at 10:30 a.m. at the Hilton, 1199 will have a delegate meeting with union representatives from health care institutions where their members work, according to two sources. It’s possible that a few elected officials may drop by also.
