POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by The Business Council of New York State: CUOMO as anti-Trump -- DURST's elective trauma -- COALITION flips on city housing plan

03/14/2016 07:00 AM EDT

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

ANDREW CUOMO, SURROGATE - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: With Trump's rise on the Republican side, Cuomo is poised to become a more valuable asset for Clinton in the general election: a surrogate attack dog who's as loud, bullying and New York-y as Trump himself. "The Democrats need someone who will be unafraid to tell Donald Trump to walk off the top of a building; there's a guy who fits that, and it's Andrew Cuomo," said Hank Sheinkopf, a Democratic political consultant who advised Cuomo's 2014 re-election. "You have two fierce New Yorkers, neither of whom will show any pity. That's one of the reason why Andrew Cuomo makes such sense as a surrogate, because this is going to be among the most vicious, nasty campaigns in American history." Cuomo's surrogate duty has so far been fairly light, but he's expected to hit the road for her soon and at one point last week was in talks to speak at a rally for her today in Florida, according to two sources familiar with the governor's plans. (Cuomo ended up not going.)

-- Chris Bragg in Sunday's Albany Times Union: "A review of the correspondence between Mario Cuomo and Trump in the 1980s paints the businessman less as a pugnacious adversary than a solicitous insider, who publicly talked up the governor's presidential prospects. 'You have no greater fan!' Trump wrote to the elder Cuomo in a 1986 letter preserved on microfilm in the State Archives."

DURST ON DURST-Prominent developer Douglas Durst opened up in an interview with POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein about his decision to have the lower portion of his right leg amputated last July after sustaining a serious injury. "In the litany of misfortunes to befall Douglas Durst-his mother's violent death, an allegedly murderous older brother who stalked him-Durst's bum leg might seem trivial. But in the private life of one of New York City's biggest landlords, the appendage caused him so much pain over so many years that last summer, he had it removed. 'I could not take the way I was,' he said. On July 27, 2015, after Durst convinced him to do it, a surgeon carved off the lower portion of Douglas Durst's right leg."

A VISIT TO HOOSICK FALLS - POLITICO New York's Scott Waldman: The governor made his first visit to Hoosick Falls on Sunday, about 100 days after the polluted town water supply blew up into one of the most serious public health crises his administration has experienced. Cuomo, wearing a blue blazer and surrounded by state and local officials in windbreakers, said initial tests of a temporary water filtration system had turned up no PFOA in treated water. At the press conference, given with just two hours notice, Cuomo credited the handling of the response by his administration and said his employees "performed admirably." Cuomo said he would be frightened if he lived in Hoosick Falls and his family had to rely on the water.

A law called Non-CPA Ownership is placing undue restrictions on who can take partner-level positions at auditing firms, and it's costing New Yorkers over 1,000 jobs and more than $6.5 million in state revenue.

LAST NIGHT ON TV -- John Oliver Responds to NYPD's John Miller's argument against Apple's encryption policy: "If you penetrate a safe, you've only penetrated that safe. But a code to open a phone can be modified to open many, many more phones. ... And as for the notion that Apple can throw the formula away after the FBI uses it once, nobody seriously thinks that is going to happen. [After a narrator cites Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance's complaint about Apple encryption] There are over 175 other phones in line, just in New York, so this is bound to set a precedent. ... There is no easy side to be on in this debate. ... I happen to feel that the risks to weakening encryption, even a little bit, even just for the government are potentially much worse. Even though I'm on Apple's side on this case, I do think they would help both their customers and the government understand this a lot better if they were a little more honest regarding security in their ads."

ONE-HOUSE BUDGETS REVEAL BATTLE LINES - POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Republicans who control the state Senate have embraced hundreds of millions in cost shifts to New York City in their one-house budget resolution, backing Gov. Andrew Cuomo and setting up a clash with Assembly Democrats as budget talks intensify over the next three weeks. The Senate's budget, quietly released early on Saturday morning, keeps Cuomo's proposals to remove $485 million in funding for the City University of New York and to shift the growth of New York City's Medicaid program back to the city government, which will have a $180 million impact in the coming fiscal year and will increase in future years. The one-house budgets, which are set to be considered today, are essentially a statement of priorities by the majority party in each house and will touch off the final rounds of closed-door talks among Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie and Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan.

-- City Hall can claim one win: both the Assembly and Senate rejected Cuomo's plans to channel housing bond cap through the state's Public Authorities Control Board.

-- Amid concerns from the health care sector about the repercussions of a proposed $15 minimum wage, the Democratic-dominated Assembly's one-house budget would create a $200 million reserve fund to help health care providers afford the increase. Republicans in the Senate, who have expressed concern about the lack of funding in Cuomo's proposal, did not include the minimum wage in their budget proposal.

IN THE ZONE-"With promise of future study, opponents back de Blasio's housing plan," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "The leading coalition opposing Mayor Bill de Blasio's housing plan has switched course and agreed to back it ahead of a critical City Council vote later this month, based on City Hall's promise to conduct a study looking into their various requests. The Real Affordability for All coalition announced Sunday morning that it is backing the mayor's two-pronged housing plan, even though he did not commit to any changes they wanted other than conducting the analysis following the Council vote. ... The study seemed to be a way to appease the opponents without actually making substantive changes to the plans before the Council takes its vote, possibly as soon as March 22."

THE TALK OF WALL STREET -- "Notorious banker returning to Wall Street," by Post's Emily Smith: "Page Six's favorite banker Sage Kelly is making a big comeback to Wall Street. The former Jefferies & Co. exec - who left the firm after estranged wife Christina Di Mauro filed court papers during their divorce outing her hubby and his banker buddies as alleged drug-taking party animals - has landed a senior investment banking job at Cantor Fitzgerald. Kelly signed with Cantor Fitzgerald chairman and CEO Howard Lutnick and will start this week as senior managing director and head of its investment banking division."

POLICE UNION POLL: Morale low, NYC less safe, De Blasio unpopular -- WSJ's Zolan Kanno-Youngs: "Many New York Police Department officers said New York City has become less safe under Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration, according to a survey conducted by the union representing the city's police officers. More than 6,000 members of the union, the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, responded to the online survey, which was conducted over three weeks in February. Eighty-seven percent of the respondents said the city had become 'somewhat less safe' or 'a lot less safe' in the past two years. ...

"The full results of the survey are scheduled to be released on Tuesday. ... Although crime is down in the city since Mr. de Blasio took office, the survey points to a dispirited police force.

"When asked to rank their morale from zero to 10, with zero being the lowest, the average was 2.49. Seventy percent of the respondents said the relationship between the public and the NYPD had "greatly worsened" in the past few years, and 89% said they would leave the force if offered a job with another law-enforcement agency in the city. Nearly as many respondents said they would leave for another law-enforcement job even if it were outside the city."

-- Daily News' Rocco Parascandola, Erin Durkin and Reuven Blau: "All told, 6,000 of the PBA's approximately 24,000 members responded to the online survey. The overwhelming number of respondents were male (87%) compared to female (10%). The department is roughly 80% men and 20% female. The poll is difficult to put into context because it's the first of its kind commissioned by the union. ... 'These findings are highly suspect and fly in the face of the facts,' said de Blasio spokeswoman Monica Klein."

MARK-VIVERITO HIGHLIGHTS CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROPOSALS - POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito pitched her plans for criminal justice reform during Sunday services at two Baptist churches in Brooklyn. In her remarks, Mark-Viverito highlighted some of the themes she touched on in her State of the City speech last month, in which she called for sweeping changes to the criminal justice system. "For too long, many of our young people - particularly young men of color - were failed by our criminal justice system," Mark-Viverito said. "Too many ended up in Rikers Island for a minor, nonviolent offense. Many more were locked up because they couldn't afford a low bail." The City Council is currently in negotiations with the city and the New York Police Department to finalize a legislative package to reform how the certain summons are issued.

REMEMBERING KIERAN CROWLEY - Post : "Former longtime New York Post reporter Kieran Crowley died over the weekend in Long Island from complications related to his leukemia, loved ones said Sunday. He was 66. ... When he wasn't wearing out shoe leather for The Post working on sensational stories such as the Ted Ammon murder and Gilgo Beach serial killer, Crowley was a prolific author of true-crime and mystery-thriller novels. ...He was named Journalist of the Year in 2014 by the Press Club of Long Island. Crowley studied acting and writing at Adelphi University and Queens College. ... Crowley worked for The Post for 36 years before retiring in 2013."

CLICKER - "Trump's Week of Errors, Exaggerations and Flat-out Falsehoods: POLITICO Magazine subjected the GOP frontrunner to our fact-checking process. This is the result," by Politico's Daniel Lippman, Darren Samuelsohn and Isaac Arnsdorf: "The result: more than five dozen statements deemed mischaracterizations, exaggerations, or simply false ... It equates to roughly one misstatement every five minutes on average. From warning of the death of Christianity in America to claiming that he is taking no money from donors ... [h]is remarks represent an extraordinary mix of inaccurate claims about domestic and foreign policy and personal and professional boasts that rarely measure up when checked against primary sources." With a list of the more than five dozen lies, fact-checked

GLENN THRUSH "OFF MESSAGE" podcast - No path for Trump in November says top Clinton strategist: In the latest "Off Message" Podcast, pollster Joel Benenson tells Glenn that Donald Trump has no path to victory in November and predicts that states like Arizona and North Carolina could flip in a Clinton/Trump matchup. Benenson also brushes off the theory that Trump can play in Rust Belt states- "He doesn't have a message that appeals to these folks. It's not real."

HILLARYWATCH -- "Facing long primary slog, Clinton allies fear helping Trump," by AP's Lisa Lerer in Cleveland and Ken Thomas in Tampa: "Clinton aides insist there's little they will do to push Sanders from the race, but they are beginning to show signs of impatience with what they perceive as the increasingly negative tone of his campaign. ... Democratic strategists wanted to use the spring to settle on early lines of attack against GOP front-runner Donald Trump ... Top Clinton donors had expected the campaign to begin raising money for the general election beginning in April, a transition they now say has been pushed off."

#NY13 -- MARK-VIVERITO BACKS ESPAILLAT AGAIN -- Post's Michael Gartland: "Congressional hopeful state Sen. Adriano Espaillat picked up a key endorsement from City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito at a rally Sunday calling for aid to Puerto Rico. Espaillat, who lost two consecutive bids for the seat against Rep. Charles Rangel, is facing Assemblyman Keith Wright, former Assemblyman Adam Clayton Powell IV, former DNC political director Clyde Williams and several others. Rangel is not running for re-election."

-- Williams hits Wright for Trump-funded lawsuit -- Daily News' Ken Lovett: "[Assemblyman Keith] Wright and then-state Sen. Larry Seabrook brought a lawsuit to stop [ a proposed Indian-run casino.] The suit was funded by the Institute for Law and Society, an upstate anti-gambling group that had been secretly bankrolled by Trump. ... The state Lobbying Commission at the time looked into whether the institute's financing of the lawsuit represented an illegal gift to Wright and Seabrook, but did not bring allegations. The commission did, however, fine Trump and his associates a then-record $250,000 to settle its probe into whether the billionaire developer illegally lobbied to stop the proposed Catskill casino that threatened his Atlantic City gambling interests."

REAL ESTATE -- BIG DEAL-"Fairstead, Blackstone testing the market for Caiola portfolio sale: sources," by The Real Deal's Mark Maurer, Adam Pincus and Hiten Samtani: "Fairstead Capital and the Blackstone Group are exploring their options to sell the massive 24-building Caiola portfolio they purchased for $690 million in September, according to sources as well as documents reviewed by The Real Deal. At least two brokerages have been testing the market for the 800,000-square-foot, 979-unit market-rate rental portfolio, likely to be sold in tranches. The owners are looking to see if the portfolio could fetch prices in the vicinity of $1,000 per square foot, which would mean an overall value of $800 million, sources familiar with the matter said. Fairstead and Blackstone, which have both described their multifamily investments as long-term plays, have not retained an exclusive agent to market it in an official capacity."

SIX FEET UNDER-"Buying for the afterlife," by The Real Deal's Farah Halime: "By the time he died in 2013, Mayor Ed Koch had already meticulously planned everything about his burial, right down to what his tombstone at the exclusive Trinity Church graveyard in Washington Heights would read. The cost? $20,000. 'The idea of leaving Manhattan permanently irritates me,' the late mayor said in 2008, according to the New York Times. While the sum may have seemed outrageous at the time, today there are New York City cemeteries where no amount of money can buy you a resting place. As such, the demand for burial plots is creating a thriving albeit morbid real estate boom. The problem is especially acute in Brooklyn."

BIRTHDAYS: Actor, comedian and Long Beach, Long Island-native, Billy Crystal ... scientist Albert Einstein ... Yesterday: Councilwoman Karen "The Kos" Koslowitz, of Queens ... Post reporter Carl Campanile ... William Scarborough, former member of the Assembly ... and Common, the Chicago-born rapper who is frequently spotted in Brooklyn.

** A message from The Business Council of New York State: You've probably never heard of Non-CPA Ownership - but you should know that it's costing New York an estimated $6.5 million in state revenue and over 1,000 jobs. New York is one of the only states in the country that restricts appraisers, actuaries, IT specialists, tax pros, and other financial sector professionals from taking partner-level positions at accounting firms.

The ability to fully integrate non-CPA experts into the culture of a firm by offering them partner-level positions is in the public interest. The average accounting firm partner salary is over $450,000 - that's nearly $6.5 million in tax revenue New York is leaving on the table. Even worse, competitor states like CT and NJ have already passed favorable non-CPA ownership rules. New York is being left behind. Learn more at **
