ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo, who has been feuding with Mayor de Blasio, recently told a group that one of his top priorities now is to "save New York City," the Daily News has learned.
Cuomo made the comment several weeks ago at a private event for his fund-raising committee, according to sources who were in attendance and another who was told by two people who were there.
Given that Cuomo has pledged $750 million in taxpayer money to a solar company that has lost $1.2 billion since 2008, has seen its losses accelerate since and is under federal investigation, maybe he should try saving his own Buffalo Billion Project instead.
And speaking of investigations, given that the feds are investigating that Buffalo Billion Project, his campaign donors and what appears to be bid rigging in favor of them, Cuomo may have his hands full elsewhere and be unable to "save New York City."
It's kinda difficult to "save New York City" when your hands are in handcuffs.
