History Repeating

Dear Editor:

Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio have a lot in common with the late Republican Governor Nelson Rockefeller and Mayor John Lindsay from the 1960s. Both Rockefeller and Cuomo deal with mayors who want equal billing on the political marque. Lindsay and de Blasio's urban agenda is dependent upon both increased state and federal assistance. This conflicts with governors who have to worry about all 62 counties making up New York State. This creates problems for governors who harbor presidential ambitions.
