1199 Goes After Paterson’s Friends

Here’s a print ad that’s in the Daily News. It’s the latest shot at David Paterson from 1199 SEIU over the governor’s proposal to reduce health care spending.

The union’s strategy is to target Paterson’s very public allies, like Macy’s department store, Time Warner Cable, and Con Ed, which, for most Americans, are better associated with New York City rather than Albany or health care issues.

The companies are members of the Partnership for New York City, a business association that the union says is supporting Paterson on this issue.

1199 is also planning a protest outside the Macy’s in Herald Square today at noon.
