Cuomo’s Government-Shrinking Commission

Consolidating the layers of local government is one of the major goals of Andrew Cuomo’s administration (and was once the topic a statewide tour he undertook while attorney general).

Today he announced members of his commission that’ll study the issue. They include:

Denis Hughes, president of the NYS AFL-CIO

Michael Balboni, former state senator 

Andrew Spano, former Westchester County Executive

Robert Zimmerman, public relations expert who served on the NYS Commission on Open Government

Recommendations  by the committee are due June 1, 2012.
