Andrew Cuomo Isn't Doing Interviews

Also in this week’s paper, I look how Andrew Cuomo is winning over critics in uncharacteristic fashion: by doing his job and not letting self-promotion get in the way.

“What we’re seeing is a guy who sees the value of letting the work speak for itself, as opposed to engaging in gratuitous public relations,” said Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf, who spent the 2006 election cycle tauntingly referring to Cuomo as “Andy” on behalf of Mark Green.

Toughguy Republican consultant Rob Ryan put it this way: “Maybe the guy’s better suited for the job than I thought.”
