NEW AT NEWS CORP: The company's new deputy head of communications -- POLITICO's Joe Pompeo has learned -- is Ilana Ozernoy , who was most recently chief of staff to Mayor Bill de Blasio's legal counsel and who previously served as director of intergovernmental affairs and communications for the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs. Ozernoy is also an ex-journalist who covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and held positions at The Atlantic and U.S. News & World Report. (Fun fact: Her father, Dr. Leonid Ozernoy, was a noted astrophysicist and Soviet dissident.) Ozernoy replaces Daisy Dunlop, who recently returned to News Corp's U.K. operation to run communications under Rebekah Brooks.
TABLOID WARS-More from Pompeo: New York Post editorial writer Robert George is headed to the other team. After more than 16 years at Rupert Murdoch's U.S. tabloid, George has landed a new gig on the editorial board of rival media mogul Mort Zuckerman's Daily News, where he fills a vacancy created by Harry Siegel's return to The Daily Beast. "It's been a wonderful ride," George wrote in a farewell email to colleagues, who toasted him Wednesday night with drinks at O'Lunney's in Midtown.
THE NEW YORKER'S NEW MANAGING EDITOR IS: Emily Greenhouse , who returns to the magazine's staff after a 16-month hiatus during which she worked as a writer for Bloomberg Politics, an insider tells POLITICO's Joe Pompeo. Greenhouse succeeds Silvia Killingsworth, who was named editor in chief of The Awl last week. The New Yorker has a track record of recruiting precocious 20-somethings into its managing editor role.

ASSESSING CUOMO THE BUILDER - The Real Deal's Kathryn Brenzel: "A year into his second term, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is a man with a limited legacy. Well before fiascoes like the Moreland Commission, there were triumphs: He signed same-sex marriage into law just months after taking office, and in 2013, inked what he calls the "toughest" gun control law in the country. But when it comes to being a gubernatorial icon, nothing says "remember me" like giant infrastructure projects. On their paths to the White House, Franklin Roosevelt and Nelson Rockefeller constantly touted their records of public works that transformed New York. Cuomo, who likely shares their presidential ambitions, has some catching up to do. Which is perhaps why, in the days leading up to his sixth State of the State address, the governor evoked the names of Rockefeller and Robert Moses.
"Like the New NY Bridge, many of the projects Cuomo is focusing on have been several decades in the making and have failed to launch for myriad reasons. Efforts to redesign Penn Station began in the 1990s but were stalled by faulty design specifications. Laments over LaGuardia Airport's logistical shortcomings fell on deaf ears. And, for several years, many called for an expansion of the Javits Center but Cuomo, in 2012, suggested a plan to tear it down and build a new one - a plan that eventually fell through. But in the past year, Cuomo has restarted the redevelopment of Penn Station, unveiled a $4 billion redesign for LaGuardia and proposed a 1.2 million-square-foot expansion to the Javits Center, expected to cost $1 billion. These projects may not have gotten their start with Cuomo, but in one way or another, he has taken them over.
"Critics say he is simply parlaying
his white-knight role in these long-stalled developments into a presidential run. But admirers point to sheer force of position: As governor, Cuomo has the necessary agency to prioritize these projects, and to cajole or bully the involved parties to get them done. 'It's the old 'If you don't have governor power, things don't happen,' said Richard Anderson, president of the New York Building Congress. 'What Gov. Cuomo has realized is that he's the only person in the state of New York that can make some of these things happen.' ... 'These projects are all commendable,' said former Lieutenant Gov. Dick Ravitch. 'I think the question that the political system hasn't answered is 'how the
hell are we going to pay for it?' I think until we get an answer to this question, all these projects are purely aspirational.'" http://bit.ly/1P0LVbr

UNIONS SHELVE WAR PAINT AS SCHOOL ISSUES RECEDE - POLITICO New York's Keshia Clukey: At this time last year, teachers, parents and union representatives were gearing up to battle controversial education policy initiatives in the state budget. "Think where we were one year ago - we were putting our war paint on," United Federation of Teachers president Michael Mulgrew said Wednesday to approximately 1,200 parents and teachers at the union's lobby day in the state Capitol. This year it's eerily quiet, but Senate and Assembly leaders say it's not a calm before the storm, because there are no real surprises looming in terms of education proposals in the one-house budgets expected out at the end of this week.
Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, speaking at the rally, agreed that last year there was "a lot of consternation, a lot of friction, a lot of frustration" with the budget. This session, both Flanagan and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said Wednesday, will include funding increases and little education policy. "Some of the policy things, unlike last year's budget, if they have to be dealt with, they'll be better and more wisely dealt with outside of the budget," Flanagan said. Cuomo's conciliatory executive budget proposal for the 2016-17 school year set the tone for this legislative session, marking a new chapter for the state as lawmakers seem to be looking to largely leave education policy decisions up to the Board of Regents. As the budget process begins to heat up, the one-house proposals from the Republican-led Senate and Democratic-led Assembly are expected to be business as usual in terms of education. http://politi.co/1ph1C9N

WOZNIAK ADMONISHED FOR SLEEPING WITH STAFFER - Buffalo News' Tom Precious: "Assemblywoman Angela Wozniak exhibited 'incredibly poor judgment' by having an affair with a member of her legislative staff and then for retaliating against him after he broke off the affair and, soon after, made sexual harassment allegations against her, an Assembly ethics panel has concluded. The eight-member, bipartisan Assembly Ethics and Guidance Committee could not unanimously agree whether the 28-year-old Cheektowaga lawmaker engaged in a 'quid quo pro sexual harassment' scheme. But the panel said her actions during and after the episode demand a range of sanctions, including a letter of admonition, banning her from employing interns and naming an independent investigator to survey employees in her office at least every six months. ... 'Assemblywoman Wozniak is glad this matter is now closed and looks forward to diverting 100 percent of her attention to representing her constituents,' Wozniak's attorney, Steven Cohen, said Wednesday afternoon." http://bit.ly/1R8C6Qm

HOMELESS SHELTERS -- City makes 12K repairs, but many problems linger -- Daily News' Jennifer Fermino: "The good news is the city completed 12,026 repairs in homeless shelters in the first two months of 2016 as part of its aggressive new plan to fix the troubled system. The bad news is city inspectors also found a whopping 6,486 outstanding violations in shelters in those two months. Mayor de Blasio said the results show City Hall is taking ownership of the problem by both quickly fixing and identifying problems. 'We are determined to give every family and individual in a homeless shelter decent living conditions,' he said. The city has conducted 2,660 inspections this year, which is almost a third of the total number for 2015." http://nydn.us/1RSaMme
-- Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Herminia Palacio and Human Resources Administration Commissioner Steve Banks announced the statistics at a Blue Room press conference held at City Hall Wednesday, flanked by several of the heads of the city's largest nonprofit shelter providers, including former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. The city has conducted 2,660 inspections of the city's shelter system since late December, a rate of more than 40 inspections per day - nearly double the rate of inspections the city conducted during the entirety of the previous year. The inspections, and repairs are part of a 90-day review of the city's homelessness operations the mayor announced in Mid-December, which is being overseen by Banks and First Deputy Mayor Tony Shorris, and which is scheduled to be completed on March 15, in less than a week.
Banks said he had convened a "war-room" of city agencies to address the problem of violations in the city's shelters, beginning on January 1, 2016, shortly after the 90-day review began. "It was a seven day a week job, daily phone calls between multiple agencies, the deputy mayor, myself and the mayor's office of operations, senior officials, frequently in multiple city agencies. And we deployed the resources of multiple agencies," Banks said. POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: http://politi.co/1RAWW55
MORE MONEY -- Council approves five percent budget boost -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: The City Council voted to increase its operating budget by five percent Wednesday, adding an additional $3.1 million to its coffers to pay for running business.
"This is a professional body and we need to ensure that we have the proper staffing and resources in order to exercise our full-scale possibilities," Mark-Viverito told reporters at City Hall. The increase means the council's budget will go to $64.1 million in Fiscal Year 2018, up from $61 million in the current fiscal year. The influx of cash will also help to pay for council members' 32 percent salary increases after they voted to give themselves a raise last month. http://politi.co/1pyqeuJ
IN THE ZONE-"Housing talks between de Blasio and Council show progress," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "Wednesday was intended to begin with a rowdy protest against Mayor Bill de Blasio's housing plans, followed by a march from the site of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations to the steps of City Hall. Organizers made clear they intended to get arrested. By the day's end, the only rally outside City Hall was one in favor of the plan, attended by the mayor and hundreds of supporters from unions and senior citizen advocacy organizations. At the same time, negotiations between the administration and the City Council made progress throughout the day, with the mayor's team agreeing to alter its controversial parking proposal and enlarge the minimum required size for so-called micro-units, according to multiple sources involved in or familiar with the talks." http://politi.co/1QIxZIp
MIKE PIAZZA COMES TO ALBANY - POLITICO New York's Kassie Parisi: The State Senate chamber on Wednesday afternoon was packed but quiet, its galleries filled with photographers standing at attention. Their lenses were trained on the east door, where former Mets catcher and Baseball Hall of Fame Inductee Mike Piazza would soon enter. Senators snuck quick, expectant glances there, and when Piazza finally entered - red-faced, wearing a small smile - the room leapt to its feet and applauded. The Senate's formal business Wednesday included 13 bills for local speed limits and mortgage fraud, but the unmistakable highlight was Piazza, who stopped at the Capitol after touring the Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday. Sen. Jose Peralta, a Democrat from Queens, presented a resolution honoring Piazza. Peralta, alongside Assemblymen Francisco Moya and Mike DenDekker, thanked Piazza for the visit, and for a few other things. "He didn't just honor us by coming here," Peralta said. "He brought some warm weather." http://politi.co/1R8zWzX
-- "Cuomo, who has not held a press conference at the Capitol for more than 250 days, decided to honor Mets great Mike Piazza at the Executive Mansion in an event that was open to state lawmakers but closed to the press. Instead, Cuomo had his press office cover the event, which included the presentation of a citation and the 'official New York State bat.' " http://bit.ly/1R8yAVY

FROM WAPO TO HUFFPO-Pompeo reports: Washington Post product chief Julia Beizer is jumping to The Huffington Post to helm the same position-except her title will be "head of product" as opposed to "director of product." CEO Jared Grusd said the hire "signifies the first major step in our journey to reimagine what HuffPost will be for our global audience in the years ahead." More on Beizer's credentials from Arianna Huffington: "She launched their first iPad app and brought a relentlessly innovative approach to everything from the desktop and mobile experiences to wearables and connected TV." That's at least the second significant departure from WaPo's product side lately. In December, Mic nabbed WaPo's Cory Haik, who is "besties" with Beizer, according to the latter's Twitter bio.
MONEY TRAIN -- "MTA paid $876M in overtime to workers last year, with top earners tripling their salary thanks to bonus hours" -- Daily News' Dan Rivoli: "Overtime at the MTA was on the rise last year - with more than 400 workers whose extra pay topped their regular salaries, according to payroll records analyzed by the Empire Center. The MTA shelled out $876 million in overtime last year, an 11% increase from the $792 million paid to workers in 2014. 'My initial thought is, 400 people earning more in overtime than in pay makes me question how they're handling time management there,' said Tim Hoefer, executive director of the Empire Center. ... The overtime king at the MTA last year was Joseph Ruzzo, a Long Island Rail Road track foreman who raked in $231,923 on top of his $101,204 salary - more than tripling his regular pay, according to the records." http://goo.gl/Qcd2Qb
FIRST DAUGHTERS -- "Chelsea and Ivanka put their friendship on ice," by Politico's Annie Karni: "When Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump were introduced by their husbands a few years ago, they clicked immediately ... They seemed to genuinely delight in each other's presence and discovered much common ground. ... But with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump now on track for a King Kong versus Godzilla political collision in November, that friendship has been put on temporary hold - [and] both women ... have chosen to no longer be seen together in public during the election." http://politi.co/1Uhq1r1
THE TALK OF WALL STREET - "John Gutfreund, Salomon's Leader in 1980s, Dies at 86," by Bloomberg's Laurence Arnold: "Gutfreund, who was proclaimed the 'King of Wall Street' in 1985 for harnessing the egos and fiefdoms of Salomon Brothers into one of the most profitable investment-banking firms, only to be deposed after a 1991 trading scandal, has died ... [at] 86. ... As managing partner and later as chairman, Gutfreund transformed Salomon from a traditional bond-trading firm into a pioneer in businesses such as mortgage-backed securities, under Lewis Ranieri, and computer-driven trading techniques, under John Meriwether." http://bloom.bg/1TvN1nr
STATEMENT FROM MAYOR MIKE: "John Gutfreund hired and fired me - and I'm grateful he did both. Along with Billy Salomon, he was a mentor and friend who taught me about hard work, management, leadership, and philanthropy. He was brilliant, honest, caring, and tough, and his reputation as the 'King of Wall Street' was well-earned. He had a profound impact on my life, and his generosity has had a profound impact on our city."
REAL ESTATE -- KENT DISSENT-"Zoning Changes That Would Allow for Williamsburg 'Tech Hub' Rejected by CB," by DNAinfo's Gwynne Hogan: "A neighborhood changing, eight-story office building that could tower over Williamsburg's industrial area has met local opposition. The area's community board rejected a request to change zoning laws so that 25 Kent Ave. could be built. Though many members supported the project - which is backed by board member and developer Toby Moskovits of Heritage Equity - they cited concerns that the zoning change required would set a precedent that other developers with less agreeable plans could follow. Moskovits has recused herself from meetings concerning the development." http://dnain.fo/1QIEFGJ
LIENING IN-"More than 24K properties on city's 90-day lien sale list, down from last year," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "The de Blasio administration is threatening lien sales on 24,200 buildings this year - about 3,000 fewer than last year, new data reveals. Of the properties on the Department of Finance's 90-day lien sale list, more than 15,000 are one-to-four family homes, co-ops and condos, according to an online tracker released by the Center for NYC Neighborhoods. Last year's 90-day list included 27,233 properties, but the city ended up selling liens against only 4,228 of them after people paid their debt. ... The administration charges nine percent interest for properties with an assessed value of less than $250,000, which is compounded daily, when it does sell these liens to third parties - a rate that causes a hardship for New Yorkers already struggling to pay their bills, advocate organizations say." http://politi.co/1QIAfiQ
SHARING ECONOMY-"WeWork Targets Asia as Valuation Hits $16 Billion," by WSJ's Eliot Brown: "Shared-office-space startup WeWork Cos. has raised about $430 million in a new round of financing led by Chinese investors, making it one of the world's most valuable startups and clearing the way for a push into Asia. Beijing-based private-equity company Hony Capital Ltd. and Legend Holdings, its parent company, led the round of financing, WeWork company executives said, giving the company a valuation of about $16 billion, up from $10 billion last summer. That would make it the third-most-valuable publicly traded office landlord were it publicly traded, despite controlling a fraction of the square footage of the leading companies in the sector." http://on.wsj.com/1P0yGaw
SCHNEIDER-MOVES-"Eric Schneiderman closes in on 28 Liberty relocation: sources," by Post's Lois Weiss: "New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman may soon be playing square-footage footsie with Chinese real estate owners as he targets a move to roughly 375,000 square feet at 28 Liberty. The AG's offices are now located in 425,000 square feet at Larry Silverstein's 120 Broadway. With a lease up in 2018, Scott Gottlieb of CBRE has been quietly leading a search for technologically advanced space with access to the Lower Manhattan courts. The short list already included possibly renewing or moving to Norman Sturner's renovated 180 Maiden Lane or 28 Liberty, now owned and being entirely renovated by the Chinese-based Fosun International. But now, sources say the AG is far along and close to the finish line on a deal at 28 Liberty." http://nyp.st/1QIBhvr
