POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by the United Federation of Teachers: BLOOMBERG drops hypothetical presidential bid -- REGENTS board makeover -- ANTI-TRUMP citizenship bump

03/08/2016 07:25 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, and Mike Allen in D.C., with Daniel Lippman

BLOOMBERG STOPS -- Bloomberg, on Bloomberg: "The Risk I Will Not Take": "[W]hen I look at the data, it's clear to me that if I entered the race, I could not win. I believe I could win a number of diverse states -- but not enough to win the 270 Electoral College votes necessary to win the presidency. ... As the race stands now, with Republicans in charge of both Houses, there is a good chance that my candidacy could lead to the election of Donald Trump or Senator Ted Cruz. That is not a risk I can take in good conscience."

-- According to a map created by Bloomberg's aides that was provided to the New York Times , he expected to be a clear frontrunner for 201 electoral votes in a potential race against Sanders and Trump.

-- Gawker said it "has less of a basis in reality than even the most absurd thing that has ever occurred on House of Cards."

-- Bloomberg had vetted former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Michael G. Mullen as a running mate.

-- Isaac Dovere writes: "The former mayor concluded that he'd lose in November or lose later in the House. Either way, it would probably put Donald Trump in the Oval Office. In the Upper East Side townhouse headquarters of Bloomberg's foundation where his top advisers met ... they talked themselves into believing there was a chance Bernie Sanders would swipe the nomination from Hillary Clinton. 'There was a moment where it seemed considerably more likely than it does today,' said Howard Wolfson, an adviser to Bloomberg who worked on the planning."

DONALD TRUMP, INSPIRATION TO NEW AMERICANS -- "More Latinos Seek Citizenship to Vote Against Trump," by Julia Preston: "Over all, naturalization applications increased by 11 percent in the 2015 fiscal year over the year before, and jumped 14 percent during the six months ending in January, according to federal figures. The pace is picking up by the week, advocates say, and they estimate applications could approach one million in 2016, about 200,000 more than the average in recent years. ... While naturalizations generally rise during presidential election years, Mr. Trump provided an extra boost this year. He began his campaign in June describing Mexicans as drug-traffickers and rapists. His pledge to build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it has been a regular applause line. He has vowed to create a deportation force to expel the estimated 11 million immigrants here illegally, evoking mass roundups of the 1950s."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "When I look at the data, it's clear to me that if I entered the race, I could not win." -- Michael Bloomberg via the WSJ:

QUIZ OF THE DAY: Can you pass the civil service test required to become a New York State toll collector?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Spokesman Sean Magers, NY1 reporter Zack Fink and Eric Sumberg, an aide to NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer.

REGENTS SHAKE-UP - POLITICO New York's Keshia Clukey: The appointment of Betty Rosa as chancellor of the state Board of Regents will bring a sea change to the education policymaking board, ending the reign of Merryl Tisch - a leader whose positions on most education issues vary greatly from that of Rosa. The selection of the Bronx Regent will also likely embolden test refusal movement leaders, who endorsed Rosa for the leadership role. And whether Rosa, who has been outspoken on testing and teacher evaluations issues, will clash with state education commissioner MaryEllen Elia, who was hired under the leadership of Tisch and supports high standards and state testing for data purposes, remains to be seen. Rosa, as was first reported by The Wall Street Journal last week, is expected to be appointed as chancellor at the board's March meeting, set for March 21 and 22. Rosa is the only member to actively put his or her name in for the role.

-- Luis Reyes, Nan Eileen Mead and Elizabeth Smith Hakanson are set to be voted onto the Board of Regents during a joint session today.

CORNELL PRESIDENT DIES AT 52 - Times' Daniel Slotnik: "Elizabeth Garrett, a lawyer and scholar who was the first woman to be president of Cornell University , died on Sunday at her home in Manhattan, only eight months after starting the post. She was 52. The cause was colon cancer, the university said. In her short time as president, Ms. Garrett spearheaded an effort to group Cornell's three accredited business programs into a College of Business. She had succeeded David J. Skorton, who stepped down to head the Smithsonian Institution. Ms. Garrett announced on Feb. 8 that she recently learned she had colon cancer and that she would undergo aggressive treatment. The university's provost, Michael Kotlikoff, was later named acting president."

FIRST RESPONDERS DECRY BAN ON ANNUAL 'STAIR CLIMB' - POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: An organization that raises money for veterans and first-responders will not be allowed to hold its second annual "stair climb" at One World Trade Center this year, and that's "Un-American," according to the organization's chief operating officer.

"It is incredible to me that civil servants were willing to give up their lives in order to save total strangers and the management of One [World Trade Center] is not willing to give up the building at 5 am on a Sunday morning because it is potentially inconvenient for them," wrote John Hodge, the chief operating officer of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, in an email to executives at Legends, which operates the observatory at the building's pinnacle, and the Durst Organization, which co-owns the building with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. "I am hoping that they will reconsider," wrote Hodge in the email, which was acquired by POLITICO New York. "I do not believe that this will sit well with the heroes of 9-11."

TRUMP SOHO HOTEL CATERERS FILE LAWSUIT - DNAinfo's James Fanelli: " Donald Trump's luxury hotel illegally stiffed its catering staff out of tips by keeping a mandatory 22-percent service fee it added to customers' bills, a new lawsuit charges. Catering staffer Deborah Garcia is suing Trump, his daughter, Ivanka, and his son Donald Trump Jr., claiming the service fee never reached her or other employees' pockets, even though most customers likely assumed it was for gratuity. 'A reasonable customer would believe that the service was in fact a gratuity for [Garcia] and similarly situated employees,' says the lawsuit, which was filed in Suffolk County Supreme Court on Feb. 13, 2015."

EAST NEW YORK PITCH -- City Hall proposes rezoning to skeptical City Council -- POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Where many see abandoned lots, underperforming schools and urban neglect, the de Blasio administration sees opportunity. The mayor's team is hoping to rezone a 190-block of East New York, one of the poorest neighborhoods in the city, as part of its multi-faceted effort to create more below-market-rate housing across the five boroughs. To accomplish that, the mayor's team must persuade a skeptical City Council, whose 51 members are simultaneously debating two other controversial citywide housing plans de Blasio has put before them. That tension provided the setting Monday for a lengthy hearing on the East New York proposal. ... I f the plan is approved, the Brooklyn neighborhood would become the first of 15 areas the administration wants to rezone to allow more residential development. It would be home to 6,492 new apartments, a new 1,000-seat school and another 1.3 million square feet of stores, office space and community facilities. ... But if the mayor makes substantial concessions to win the support of the Council members representing the area, he risks more pressure from other politicians when he begins similar efforts in their neighborhoods."

DOI FINDS ITS BALANCE -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: Department of Investigation chief Mark s told the City Council on Monday his agency has found a point of balance between making a significant number of arrests and conducting sweeping oversight reports of the city's agencies and programs.

Testifying before the Committee on Oversight and Investigations during a preliminary budget hearing, s said his office had taken into account concerns raised by members last year about the dramatic drop in arrests since s was appointed to lead the agency. "I am happy to report that as an indicator of our current strategy's success, key metrics are up from last year," s said. According to data provided by DOI, in calendar year 2015 the agency made 569 arrests stemming from more than 1,500 investigations, as well as 700 referrals for criminal prosecution. Despite the increase in numbers, s stressed a point he has made previously, saying arrests only account for part of the agency's work and should not be used a performance evaluator for the department.

THE TALK OF WALL STREET - "Wall Street Bonuses Fell in 2015, and 2016 Isn't Looking Rosy," by Dealbook's Liz Moyer: "The average bonus paid in the securities industry fell 9 percent, to $146,200, last year, while the bonus pool for employees who work in New York City shrank 6 percent, to $25 billion. The finance industry is a crucial component of the state's annual tax revenue, contributing about 17.5 percent of the total last year. ... Already New York State has cut its forecast for this year's bonus pool for finance and insurance jobs in the state, now predicting a 2.5 percent drop. Securities industry profit fell 10.5 percent last year, to $14.3 billion, the lowest since 2011."

CHRISTIE CHRONICLES -- "For Chris Christie and Donald Trump, Ties Go Back Years," by Times' Kate Zernike: "Gov. Chris Christie says he first met Donald J. Trump 14 years ago as a courtesy to Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, after she told him, 'My little brother really wants to meet you.' Mr. Christie had just become the top federal prosecutor in New Jersey. Mr. Trump owned casinos in Atlantic City, where it makes sense to have friends in law enforcement. But Mr. Christie left friends and associates with the impression that he was just as eager to meet Mr. Trump. He began referring to Mr. Trump as 'a friend of mine,' the way he later would Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, whose private plane and private box he enjoyed; King Abdullah, who hosted him on a lavish weekend in the Jordanian desert; Bono, the singer of U2, who joined them at parties there; and, after a long period of unrequited adulation, Bruce Springsteen. Much like Mr. Trump, Mr. Christie had shown that he liked to be around People Who Matter."

REAL ESTATE -- BIG DEAL-"Jared Kushner sells Two Rector St. for $225M," by Post's Lois Weiss: "Jared Kushner and CIM Group are in contract to sell the downtown office building at Two Rector St. for roughly $225 million to Kevin Hoo of Cove Property Group and the pension fund investment manager Bentall Kennedy. Hoo and Bentall Kennedy are expected to target boutique office users for the 465,000-square-foot tower that sits between Greenwich Street and Trinity Place ... Hoo is a former executive with Savanna, the investment firm that previously owned Two Rector with Larry Gluck and sold it to Kushner and CIM for $140 million in 2013."

TALL ORDER-"Permits Filed For 4566 Broadway, 19-Story Building In Washington Heights," by YIMBY's Rebecca Baird-Remba: "In January, YIMBY brought you the first look at a 23-story residential project planned for 4650 Broadway, on the border between Washington Heights and Inwood. Now, a different developer has filed plans for a 19-story apartment building only two blocks south, at 4566 Broadway. The 225-foot-tall development would rise at the corner of Broadway and Nagle Avenue, across the street from Fort Tryon Park. The building would hold 171 apartments, stacked on top of 7,780 square feet of retail. The apartments would be spread across 148,565 square feet of residential space, for average units weighing in around 870 square feet."

CHUGGING ALONG-"The History Of Little Engine 23, At 215 West 58th Street," by YIMBY's Evan Bindelglass: "Not everything happening on or near Billionaires' Row is supertall. Some of it is supersmall, relatively speaking. Two months ago, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the restoration and renovation of an individual landmark in the midst of the coming towers. That gives us the perfect opportunity to tell you a little bit about Engine Company No. 23. Located at 215 West 58th Street, it sits just east of the future driveway for 220 Central Park South, which will eventually rise 950 feet, and across the street from the back of 217 West 57th Street/Nordstrom Tower, officially Central Park Tower, which will eventually rise 1,550 feet."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: In the Big East women's basketball tournament, St. John's knocked off top seed DePaul, and will play Creighton for the conference title Tuesday night as a result.

-- Hofstra men's basketball held a double-digit lead, fell behind UNC-Wilmington, then rallied to force OT, but lost a chance at an NCAA bid, 80-73.

-- Iona, facing the best MAAC team in many years in Monmouth in Albany, managed to hold conference player of the year Justin Robinson in check and earn the auto bid, 79-76. If there is justice in the world, Monmouth will get an at-large bid.

-- The day ahead: the Knicks are in Denver. The Nets are in Toronto. The Rangers are in Buffalo. The Islanders host the Penguins.

#UpstateAmerica: Syracuse's Empire Brewing Co. is offering pairings between Girl Scout cookies and craft beer.
