BLOOMBERG'S LANE - Blake Zeff for POLITICO New York: As Michael Bloomberg decides in the coming days whether to launch a third-party presidential bid, he's being hailed as a non-ideological conciliator by his boosters, and dismissed as a joke by his skeptics. In fact, both are wrong. His centrist-lane rationale for running is mostly a P.R. concoction, but his ability to affect the campaign shouldn't be in doubt. It's tempting to dismiss Bloomberg's latest flirtation as a flight of fancy from an ego-driven, understimulated billionaire. He's a proud anti-populist running in the year of the populist, with no charisma or political party, with unappealing poll numbers and impossible-looking electoral college math. Yet despite that, his resources and history suggest that if he runs, it won't be an option to ignore him. He may have little chance of actually winning, but by the time he finishes air-dropping a billion dollars worth of targeted ads across America, there will be people reciting his name and mantra in their sleep.
Bloomberg's campaign would be missing one tiny thing, however: an actual reason for his candidacy. Yes, Bloomberg has the resources to promulgate his name and argument enough that everyone in America hears it. But as Jeb Bush just showed, simply having a lot of money to sell cat food doesn't help if the cats find it inedible. In other races, Bloomberg has first decided he wanted the job, and then come up with a persuasive message and justification later. ... Now, Bloomberg would love to be president. And he's again in search of a rationale to sell the public. His public exploration for a reason currently looks like a seven year-old's dartboard at the end of seven rounds. http://politi.co/1QmwAqR

BERNT -- In some districts, Bernie Sanders does not have enough delegates -- Azi: In seven of the New York's 27 congressional districts, Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign did not file enough delegates to field a full slate. A copy of the ballot to be used in the state's April 19 presidential primary was posted online Thursday by the New York State Board of Elections. In the 4th, 6th and 8th congressional districts, Sanders campaign only fielded five delegates, instead of six. In the 7th, Sanders fielded six, instead of seven. In the 14th, Sanders fielded only five, out of seven slots. And in the 15th and 18th congressional districts, Sanders fielded four delegates, out of six slots. There is one silver lining on the ballot for the Vermont senator's campaign: Thanks to a lottery conducted by state election officials, his name and his slate of delegates will appear before Hillary Clinton's. http://goo.gl/pDordE

MARK YOUR CALENDARS -- CITY COUNCIL TO BEGIN PRELIMINARY BUDGET HEARINGS ON TUESDAY -- Gotham Gazette's Meg O'Conno r: "The City Council will hold the first of many preliminary budget hearings on Mayor Bill de Blasio's initial fiscal year 2017 spending plan, part of a months-long negotiation process that will end in June when the City Council and the Mayor must agree upon a budget for fiscal year 2017. First in general terms, then agency by agency, the Council will ask de Blasio administration representatives to explain spending and programmatic choices. Council members will examine overall budgeting principles, looking at savings from prior years and money socked away in case of an economic downturn, as well as how clearly the administration is showing what money is being allocated for. Throughout the weeks of hearings, members will also push for their individual funding priorities, such as summer youth employment and efforts to fight gun violence and rape." http://bit.ly/1TLMQUK
#OSCARSSOWHITE -- FIRST LADY DOESN'T BOYCOTT OSCARS -- Newsday's Emily Ngo: "New York City's first lady Chirlane McCray said Sunday she won't be among those boycotting the Oscars for the Academy Awards' lack of nominees of color, but acknowledged she believes the academy has 'underappreciated minority populations and women of all ethnicities since day one.'
"'My choice is to watch this year,' McCray wrote in a blog post on her flo.nyc website. 'As I see it, the film industry does not consist of just power players, who are predominately white and male, but also hundreds of other workers from production assistants to grips, that help bring these movies to life.' The industry is vital to the city's economy, employing at least 130,000 people, she said. McCray, who is black, wrote that there are means beyond boycotting that can empower minorities in the entertainment industry. One option is supporting a city-run training program that connects young people to jobs, internships and mentors to learn how to write, direct, act and more, she wrote." http://nwsdy.li/1TgKFsw

CUOMO THE 'CHAMELEON' - Wall Street Journal's Mike Vilensky: "More than five years into Gov. Andrew Cuomo's tenure, some legislators, lobbyists and political players said his tendency to change positions has left them unsure where he stands on issues and uncertain of his core beliefs. Now, as Albany enters its deal-making season with the state budget due by April 1, several high-profile proposals topping the Democratic governor's agenda are issues that months ago he opposed or dismissed as unworkable, a change that has left some lawmakers scratching their heads. 'I don't know what he wants,' said Assemblyman Daniel O'Donnell, a Manhattan Democrat. 'Nobody ever knows what this governor wants. He's a chameleon.' In an interview, Mr. Cuomo disputed the notion that he regularly shifted his positions, saying most of the changes marked different strategies toward the same goal or were the result of new political circumstances. He said critics who described him as a political shape-shifter were taking 'nasty and derogatory' shots at him." http://on.wsj.com/1QeKkmb
LABOR, HOMELESS ADVOCATES CALL ON CUOMO TO WORK WITH CITY HALL - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: A coalition of community activists and New York City's largest municipal public sector union are calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to do more to help New York City's homeless population and calling out the governor and his administration for what they say is a "counter-productive" lack of cooperation between City Hall and the governor's office in efforts to address homelessness.
While Cuomo pleased housing and homeless services advocates when he announced in January plans to build 20,000 units of supportive housing over the next 15 years, the governor's administration has openly clashed with City Hall in recent weeks over the conditions at city shelters, trading blame in aggressive letters after a triple murder at a temporary homeless shelter on Staten Island, and a false report of a gang rape at a men's shelter in Manhattan. In a report set to be released Monday, members of VOCAL-NY, the Community Service Society and DC 37 will call on Cuomo's administration to do more to help the homeless, by increasing a state-set subsidy for homeless individuals and families, expanding eligibility for rent subsidies to victims of domestic violence and revealing more details about how, exactly, he plans to pay for the 20,000 units of supportive housing he has promised. http://politi.co/1UthYaX
IN THE ZONE -- Bill de Blasio barnstorms Bed-Stuy for his housing plan -- Newsday's Matthew Chayes: "Mayor Bill de Blasio barnstormed Saturday through beauty parlors and barber shops in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood to promote his housing agenda - escorted by the local city councilman who would not commit to supporting it, yet. Like many other council members, Robert E. Cornegy Jr. wants the plan to require more apartments that poorer New Yorkers can afford. Like many other council members, Robert E. Cornegy Jr. wants the plan to require more apartments that poorer New Yorkers can afford. 'We'd love deeper affordability,' he said, expressing sympathy for the broader goals of the proposal, if not its current form.
"'We are probably the epicenter of gentrification, and I need to do something immediately to stop this bleeding,' Cornegy said on Fulton Street, a busy thoroughfare of a neighborhood that saw average rents rise by 9 percent between 2014 and 2015, according to the Brooklyn Rental Market Report. De Blasio's plan, which is to be voted on by the full council late next month, requires real estate developers who want to build in rezoned neighborhoods to include some below-market-rate housing for the poorest New Yorkers in a mix of different income brackets. http://nwsdy.li/24wdchk
HOUSING CONUNDRUM-"The senior housing crisis," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "For two years and three months, the only fresh air Steve Mancuso managed to breathe came from an open window in his small, second-floor walk-up in Queens. Mancuso had a bad fall on a wet bathroom floor. He developed an infection, and 16 months later, in May 2012, his right leg was amputated below the knee. He shared the $975-a-month apartment with his brother Vincent, who is legally blind and suffering from kidney and heart troubles. The two slept in the same bedroom. Mancuso, who was 62 at the time of his surgery, was confined to a wheelchair. But his apartment, situated atop a Chinese restaurant on Rockaway Boulevard, did not have an elevator.
"An ambulette team carried him downstairs to drive him to medical appointments. Meals on Wheels brought him food. Social service aides helped him bathe and cleaned his apartment. 'Outside of going to appointments I was stuck there and I could never get out. I mean, I didn't get out for a couple years,' Mancuso said in a phone interview. 'There wasn't much air. It was a very humid apartment too. I suffered in there quite a bit. I had no choice. I was begging people to get me out of there. Nothing I could do,' he said. On July 15, 2015, one year after he was put on a waiting list for an apartment in a senior-citizen development for people with low incomes, Mancuso moved.
"He and his brother now share a larger apartment in Flushing for $734 a month, utilities included, in a development run by Selfhelp Community Services. Most importantly for Steve: the 19-story building has an elevator, allowing him to go outside. 'Breathing the air was wonderful,' he said. 'When I was a prisoner there was not much I could do; just stay there and look out the window and wish I was out there.' Mancuso's story is replicated throughout New York City, as a growing population of senior citizens, many living on meager and decreasing budgets, contend with a limited supply of housing." http://politi.co/1pjxQ46
PFOA IN SBURGH - Times Union's Brendan Lyons: "A plastics company in sburgh first alerted the state Department of Environmental Conservation in 2005 about its discovery of a toxic chemical in the groundwater around its plant on Route 22. At the time, according to state officials, the discovery of the hazardous man-made chemical, perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA, did not result in any public notification or additional investigation by the state. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it has no record that the company or state DEC notified the federal agency about the situation at that time. The company, Taconic, installed a carbon-filter system on the wells at its plant along the Little Hoosic River after it said low levels of the chemical were discovered there. The company also provided alternative water treatment systems for nearby residents, a person briefed on the case said. Taconic's plant on Route 22 near the Little Hoosic River makes specialty products including silicone-coated fabrics and tapes." http://bit.ly/1TFs6Ne
-- State officials said on Friday that they did not test water in sburgh for the toxic chemical PFOA in 2014, even though a state employee privately raised the possibility of its presence in the water supply, because it was not on federal regulation lists. POLITICO New York reported on Friday that a Department of Health staff member suspected that PFOA was being used at Taconic Plastics in sburgh and emailed her concerns to three other officials in late 2014. Tests conducted more than a year later showed levels of PFOA - which has been linked to kidney and testicular cancer and thyroid problems - in the town water supply that are just below the federal warning levels, and the state is now helping distribute bottled water throughout the town. On Friday, at a quickly assembled press conference in Hoosick Falls, state director of operations Jim Malatras said officials did not act in sburgh, just 10 miles away, because PFOA was not on a federal watch list. He characterized the email as a staff member's inquiry, not an official report that the water was polluted. http://politi.co/1QDq36R
-- The Center for Environmental health at the DOH, according to one scientist who spoke with Lyons, is "filled with ethical and well-meaning scientists." "They're not complicit with industry, they're not bought off and no one is telling them to put their thumb on the scale," he said. "It's just that they are by nature minimizers. The result comes out consistent with what the industry would want." http://bit.ly/1QeJbuS
-- The big picture, from Jesse McKinley's A1 story in the Times: "The situation in Hoosick Falls has led to heightened and some frightened awareness of PFOA and other potentially hazardous chemicals, with worries rippling out to neighboring towns, over state lines and across the nation. On Feb. 20, state officials announced that PFOA had also been found in the water in sburgh, N.Y., 10 miles south of Hoosick Falls. On Thursday, Gov. Shumlin of Vermont announced that wells in North Bennington - just east of Hoosick Falls - had also tested positive for the chemical. Across the nation, concern over contamination has risen in places like Seattle, where the city recently sued the agribusiness giant Monsanto over chemical pollution in the Duwamish River, and in Minnesota, where a state report issued last week found that up to 60 percent of groundwater samples from wells in the central part of the state had unsafe levels of nitrates. Polls show that nearly half of Americans are concerned about their water supply. And if Flint is the national standard-bearer for water woes, Hoosick Falls seems to be a local surrogate: Last week, officials in Bethlehem, N.Y., a suburb of Albany, tried to tamp down fears about high levels of trihalomethanes, a common byproduct of chlorination in their water. 'Current events in other communities, such as Hoosick Falls and Flint, Mich.,' a statement read, 'are very different.'" http://nyti.ms/1QmsRto
LONG READ -- Technology and Education -- Rebecca Mead, in the New Yorker: "Seen from the outside, AltSchool Brooklyn, a private school that opened in Brooklyn Heights last fall, does not look like a traditional educational establishment. There is no playground attached, no crossing guard at the street corner, and no crowd of children blocking the sidewalk in the morning. ... There is no principal's office and no principal. Like the five other AltSchools that have opened in the past three years-the rest are in the Bay Area-the school is run by teachers, one of whom serves as the head of the school. There is no school secretary: many administrative matters are handled at AltSchool's headquarters, in the SOMA district of San Francisco. There aren't even many children. Every AltSchool is a 'micro-school.' In Brooklyn Heights, there are thirty-five students, ranging from pre-kindergarten to third grade. Only a few dozen more children will be added as the school matures.
"AltSchool's ambition, however, is huge. Five more schools are scheduled to open by the end of 2017, in San Francisco, Manhattan, and Chicago, and the goal is to expand into other parts of the country, offering a highly tailored education that uses technology to target each student's 'needs and passions.' Tuition is about thirty thousand dollars a year. ... The curriculum is roughly aligned with the Common Core, the government standards that establish topics which students should master by the end of each grade. But AltSchool's ethos is fundamentally opposed to the paradigm of standardization..." http://goo.gl/xRKk5f
REPLACING RANGEL -- Wright defends his housing record; Perkins drops out -- Azi: Assemblyman Keith Wright, the money-leader and establishment favorite in the race to replace retiring Rep. Charlie Rangel, got a boost today when it was announced at a candidate forum that a leading rival in the race, State Senator Bill Perkins, was dropping out.
Perkins - who declared himself the "front-runner" in the congressional race - sent a text to the event's organizer saying that he was withdrawing from the 13th congressional district race to run for re-election. That message was curious, since the state elections are in September and the congressional primary is in June - giving Perkins and other sitting legislators time to run for their current seats if they lose the congressional race. A spokesperson for Perkins, who last week denied Perkins was withdrawing from the race, did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. ... Perkins may have also feared losing his State Senate seat to a Rangel-backed challenger. Perkins only has $30,658 in his State Senate campaign account. Brian Benjamin, a real estate developer and local Democratic operative with ties to Wright and Rangel, has $51,150 in his "Benjamin 2016" campaign account. Benjamin's campaign received $250 this past January from Wright's Assembly campaign committee. http://goo.gl/kCddai

Councilman Ritchie Torres, who proposed the legislation, said the tattle cards will encourage people to get off the couch and do their civic duty. ... As if seeing your spotty history isn't bad enough for some voters, Torres also said he is mulling adding a grade on the voter cards to further shame people." http://goo.gl/1Ra9LR
ICYM -- LABOR HEALTH SAVINGS -- To reduce costs, city will increase copays on certain health services -- POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg and Gloria Pazmino: With an eye toward changing employee behavior, the de Blasio administration and the Municipal Labor Committee have agreed to increase copayments for some health care services while decreasing others, hoping city workers will make more efficient use of the health care system.
The deal, announced Friday morning, is expected to save the city $150 million. It's part of the $3.4 billion in health savings the de Blasio administration has promised to find over four years, a piece of a deal made with labor unions that was supposed to partially offset the cost a new labor contract signed in 2014. The plan received a mixed reaction from the City Council and budget watchdogs, who praised the mayor's office for pushing employees to make cost-effective choices, while criticizing what they saw as a lack of transparency and too many budget gimmicks, which make up the bulk of the billion dollars that the administration claims it has so far saved. http://politi.co/24wbRqL

** A Message from Nuclear Matters: New York's existing nuclear energy plants provide 61 percent of the state's carbon-free electricity and play a vital role in achieving our clean-energy and carbon-reduction goals. Additional premature retirements of safe, reliable nuclear energy plants mean New Yorkers would pay more for electricity, the economy would suffer and we would face substantially higher carbon emissions.
New York has taken an essential step forward to address the premature closures of our nuclear energy plants. The proposed development of a Clean Energy Standard by the Public Service Commission would, for the first time, ensure that existing nuclear plants are valued for their carbon-free attributes.
We urge the state to include all of New York's existing nuclear energy plants, regardless of their geography in the state, in the proposed Clean Energy Standard. All nuclear energy facilities bring significant reliability and clean-air benefits to New York. Learn more: NuclearMatters.com. **
