Governor Andrew Cuomo is in the New York City area with no public schedule.
It's been that way since the election.
He is said to be making plans for his second term.
I posted last week that he is sitting in his darkened room preparing to settle all Family business and dispatch his enemies and anybody else who humiliated him during the election cycle.
We know he's going to go after teachers and schools - he already told us he plans to "break" us.
I expect that he will try and revise APPR (which he has promised to do in order to add "real sanctions"), that he will try and further weaken tenure and go after seniority rights for layoffs.
And of course the charter cap will be either lifted or eliminated - that goes without saying.
Also mayoral control in NYC will be revised to humiliate de Blasio and further empower the charter school entrepreneurs.
I have heard rumors of even darker things to come, with Cuomo planning a full-out assault on unions in the state, a la Scott Walker.
There are rumors that he plans to go after the Triborough Agreement and pensions of current (and perhaps even retired) state workers, a la Chris Christie.
I have a difficult time seeing him getting the political juice to mount a major assault against the Triborough agreement or pensions, given that he won re-election by just 13%, many of the people who voted for him weren't particularly enamored with him to begin with and he's got lots of enemies in Albany who would love to stick a shiv in him.
But you never know - Cuomo's a vindictive SOB and he hasn't hidden away for the last few weeks in a darkened room with Joe Percoco and his other henchmen to throw us all a party in January.
So, whatever's coming is going to be pretty bad.
What do you expect him to try and do and what do you think he'll actually be able to do?
That second part of the question is important - Cuomo's got all kinds of evil in his heart he wants to unleash on people, but we need to remember, after spending 9 to 1 over his GOP opponent, he won the election by just 13 percentage points.
And he has a U.S. attorney looking into him.
And he has a lot of enemies in Albany and around the state looking to pay him back for his previous crimes against them.
This is not 2010 and Governor Cuomo is not some juggernaut.
He CAN be beaten in whatever fight he brings to us.
