Eliot Spitzer continues to fill his public schedule with announcements on basic, broadly appealing policy issues.
This morning he directed the M.T.A. to keep base subway and bus fares at $2, and later today, he’s making an economic development announcement in Binghamton.
It’s a seamless continuation from yesterday, when he announced more than a $1 billion in federal funding for the 2nd Avenue subway and education benchmarks for a number of school districts.
One of the state senators on hand for the education announcement, Antoine Thompson of Buffalo, told me yesterday, “I think it’s a core Democratic issue, education and health care. And I think the closer that the governor gets to trumpeting those core Democratic issues like education and health care, many Democrats will be even more excited than they were today.”
