Joe Bruno in City Hall

It’s not often that staunchly upstate-ist Majority Leader Joe Bruno shows up at City Hall.

But yesterday, he did just that, meeting with the mayor at 3:30 and dropping in unannounced on some puzzled reporters in Room 9 afterwards.

After asking around, I still don’t have an in-depth explanation for what he was doing here. Just this email explanation, from a Bloomberg spokesman:

“The Mayor thanked Senator Bruno for everything he did for the City in this year’s budget.”
