One Opponent’s Take on the Mayor’s Negotiating Skills

So in the wake of the serious but apparently but quite fatal failure of congestion pricing in the legislature, I had a chat with Assemblywoman Joan Millman of Brooklyn, who was outside City Hall earlier today.

Millman said legislators outside the metropolitan area didn’t want the end of session to be consumed with congestion pricing, an issue that basically has nothing to do with them.

“New York State is not only about New York City.”

So, who understands better how to get legislation through the legislature: the governor or the mayor?

“I can’t talk about the governor because the governor hasn’t’ been there, but certainly the mayor doesn’t seem to get it.”
