CUOMO BLAMES HOMELESS PROBLEMS ON DE BLASIO MISMANAGEMENT - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: After a series of reports on widespread violence and drug abuse inside New York City's homeless shelter system, Gov. Andrew Cuomo renewed his assault on Mayor Bill de Blasio's management of the city's shelters on Thursday. He asserted that the city's homelessness problem is "growing," the city's shelters are dangerous, and that a critical part of the problem is city mismanagement of those shelters.
"Every New Yorker, I think, who walks around the streets, is aware that homelessness is a growing problem. I talked about it in the State of the State back in January. And it is a crisis. It's a crisis that's getting worse," Cuomo said Thursday during an unrelated press conference inside of his Midtown office....Cuomo also said that the state would pony up resources for the city's shelters, telling reporters that "we already pay 55 percent of most of the shelter costs for the city" and noting that "our role, constitutionally, is to make sure the system is well-run." http://politi.co/22qt1Ef

O'BLASIO - POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: Two years into his term as mayor, Bill de Blasio seems to have finally found a feel for St. Patrick's Day. In his first year in office, he shocked the city's Irish establishment by sending out invitations late for the annual St. Patrick's day breakfast at Gracie Mansion, raising alarms the annual event might not happen. On Thursday, the breakfast appeared to be an unqualified success - a bright, near-warm day, a packed house, and guests feasting on soda bread, "black and white pudding" and Irish coffees spiked with Tullamore Dew. http://politi.co/22qsS3F
-- With Mayor Bill de Blasio Marching, St. Patrick's Day Parade Walks Peaceful Path -- Times' Marc Santora and William Neuman: With Mayor Bill de Blasio finally joining the ranks of New York City mayors who have marched in the annual procession, the path to peace seems to have worked its way to Fifth Avenue, where on Thursday a gay Irish delegation marched proudly under its own banner for the first time. "For two decades and more we had a blemish on our city," Mr. de Blasio said at a breakfast at Gracie Mansion before the parade. "People worked together. They overcame it. People will be able to express their pride, their pride as Irish-Americans, their pride as L.G.B.T. Americans, their pride as New Yorkers." Since taking office two years ago, he had declined to march as a way of protesting a ban by the organizers of the event on the open participation by gay groups. In what seems a fitting selection, George J. Mitchell, the former Senate majority leader who presided over the negotiations that led to the Good Friday Agreement and power sharing in Northern Ireland, served as the parade's grand marshal this year. http://nyti.ms/1RRBKYC
2016 -- WSJ's editorial: "Mr. Trump has some major coalition repair work to do. The opinions he should care about are the 39% of GOP voters who said in Tuesday's exit polls that they would consider supporting a third-party candidate if Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton are the nominees, or the 44% of non-Trump GOP voters who said they won't cast a ballot for him in November. As Mr. Trump likes to tweet, better be careful!" http://goo.gl/mduamv
THE PATH TO A DEMOCRATIC-CONTROLLED SENATE - POLITICO New York's Josefa Velasquez: The delicate balance of what party will control the state Senate next year lies in the hands of Mel Brooks' great-nephew. Assemblyman Todd Kaminsky, who was boosted in his 2014 run for a Long Island Assembly seat by robocalls from his legendary relative, may now deliver the State Senate into Democratic control next month by winning a special election that will reverberate heading into the November elections. http://politi.co/1MbV5Hq

** A message from The Business Council of New York State: One obscure law is holding New York back from economic opportunity and job creation.

BUFFALO'S TALLEST BUILDING FINDS A SUITOR - The Buffalo News' Jonathan Epstein: "A veteran downstate real estate developer said he's prepared to spend more than $150 million to buy and redevelop One Seneca Tower into a mixed-use complex with condos, high-end office space, a hotel and a restaurant, if the building's new owner agrees to a deal. Phillip Ruthen of New York City, who leads a group of wealthy investors, is the latest in a new line of suitors for Buffalo's tallest building, which dominates the city skyline from its position at the foot of Main Street. He has offered to buy the 38-story downtown office building and attached parking ramp for about $50 million, in response to a request for bids by the loan servicing company that foreclosed on the building last October." http://bit.ly/1U9Lvbd
REMEMBERING CORNELL'S ELIZABETH GARRETT - Ithaca Journal: "Elizabeth Garrett was remembered Thursday by friends, students and colleagues as a passionate, 'whip smart' leader that was a teacher first and foremost. All 1,500 seats of Bailey Hall were nearly full. As students, friends and colleagues of Garrett spoke about her legacy, a large photograph of her smiling was on display on stage. It was a smile almost everyone mentioned, as 'infectious' and 'dazzling.' Mark A. Weinberger, global chairman and CEO of EY and friend of Garrett's for 25 years, said being president of Cornell University was 'everything she had worked towards.' ...In early February, Garrett told the Cornell community that she had colon cancer. She died less than a month later. ...Orli Etingin, professor of clinical medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine, who took care of Garrett, said... on Garrett's last night at home, she pulled her close and gave her a message for the Cornell community. 'She said, 'Please Orli, please tell them, be sure to tell them at Cornell that I think they're great...I am so proud of everyone, and I know that they'll be fine. There's a great road ahead for Cornell,'' Etingin said." http://ithacajr.nl/1Mc0m1L
RIKERS COMMISSION -- Chair looks to keep peace with Seabrook -- POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton and Gloria Pazmino: Former chief judge Jonathan Lippman is working to place his newly announced criminal justice and incarceration commission in neutral territory in the ongoing fight between the correction officers' union and the city over how best to address violence at the troubled Rikers Island jail.
Speaking to reporters on a conference call shortly after the members of the new commission were announced, Lippman said he'd spoken with Correction Officers' Benevolent Association president Norman Seabrook ahead of the announcement, and said the union chief was "very pleased" with the way the commission was headed. "He is confident that I, certainly, and the commission does not put all the problems of the world at the feet of the corrections officers union," Lippman said. Lippman said he plans to speak with Seabrook regularly, and that he'd assured him his voice would be heard in the commission - even as the former judge opted not to include Seabrook on the commission itself. The union was not the only one left off the commission. Lippman said he also opted not to ask Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration for a representative, nor anyone from City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito's office, despite her call to form the commission.
However, the commission did include Stanley Richards, a former inmate who is now the senior vice president of The Fortune Society. Richards is also a Mark-Viverito appointee to the city's Board of Correction, which deals directly with many of the day-to-day challenges facing the Department of Correction and the correction officers it employs. http://politi.co/1pwYc2Z -- SEE the list of members: http://politi.co/1XyuvZV
MEDIA MORNING -- BENNET BUZZ -- Politico's Joe Pompeo: Here's the thinking about The New York Times' announcement on Monday that James Bennet will succeed Andy Rosenthal as editorial page editor starting May 2: The Times has wanted Bennet back since he left the paper after more than 15 years in 2006 to become editor of The Atlantic. The love affair was apparently mutual. "Even when he was at The Atlantic, he was still a Times guy to his bones," said one of the insiders we spoke with this week.
-- But there apparently wasn't a role available that was prominent enough for Bennet to abdicate his Atlantic throne. Former executive editor Jill Abramson and CEO Mark Thompson tried a few years ago to lure him with a digital masthead position, but Bennet passed (http://politi.co/1Uj2E1v). Two sources told POLITICO that in the latest round of talks, op-ed chief was floated, but still-no dice. (Times vet James Dao was named op-ed editor in January.)
-- The more senior perch of editorial page editor puts Bennet , 49, in a powerful position that will keep him in the mix of potential successors to executive editor Dean Baquet. Rosenthal, meanwhile, gets to step down at the respectable age of 60 and ride out his Times career writing columns, per the suggestion of publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr.
-- At the Nora Ephron documentary premiere in Manhattan a few days ago, we're told, chatter among the gaggle of Times people on hand was that Bennet is now the favorite to succeed Baquet. But others are scoffing at the suggestion that Sulzberger has anything so concrete in mind just yet. Still, Bennet's return is an eye-raiser-we're also told members of the opinion department were caught off guard by the announcement.
MORE ON de Blasio shutting down his nonprofit -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias: The mayor said on Thursday that he is winding down the Campaign for One New York because the group has accomplished its mission. "The work is done," de Blasio said. "The Campaign for One New York was created to address income inequality. The first big initiative it got involved in was pre-K, which was a success. It got involved in achieving our affordable housing plan. Although there's still a few more things to do, we feel very very good about the work, and we feel we're on the verge of a great victory. The work is done. That's the bottom line." http://politi.co/22qt82E
-- No rush to disclose donors: "Mr. Levitan declined to make available a list of contributors and spending since January, when the group last made a voluntary disclosure, saying it would stick to the six-month disclosure schedule it had established for itself."

-- In NY-11, Can Democrats pounce on Donovan for supporting Trump? -- Observer's Ross Barkan: "For Mr. Donovan, backing Mr. Trump could play into the DCCC's hands; he represents a swing district that voted for President Obama in 2012 and will see an increase in Democratic turnout. The consistent problem for the DCCC in the 11th Congressional District, which spans all of Staten Island and a sliver of southern Brooklyn, has been candidate recruitment." http://goo.gl/6ynVAf
-- Arrest blitz: "Four well-known activists and copwatchers were arrested in a span of three days for filming the police, which is not illegal.

JACOBS TO RUN FOR PANEPINTO SEAT - The Buffalo News' Bob McCarthy: "The contest for the 60th Senate District will solidify at least on the Republican side Friday, just three days after Democratic incumbent Marc C. Panepinto announced he would not seek a second term. Christopher L. Jacobs, the Erie County clerk, has scheduled a news conference for 10 a.m., Friday, when he is expected to announce his long-anticipated candidacy. Assemblyman Sean M. Ryan of Buffalo, meanwhile, said Thursday that he continues to consider running as the Democratic candidate, though any decision does not appear imminent. 'I certainly won't be making any decision on this for a few weeks,' the Democratic lawmaker said." http://bit.ly/1PeWHec

Like Mr Trump, I do not require much sleep ... This affords me the opportunity to tackle issues early while most people are still asleep. ... To those of us who are close to Mr Trump, he is more than our boss. He is our patriarch.' ... 'To me, comparisons between Mr Trump and Hitler are hurtful and they are misleading.

POLITICO MAGAZINE Friday cover: "How Trump beats Hillary. And how Hillary beats Trump. Two game plans for the bruising race we're about to see":
--Bill Scher, liberal pundit: "The hard reality is that you need to win over some swing-state voters who went with Obama in both of the past two elections: the blue-collar workers saved by the auto bailout, the unmarried women who want equal pay and reproductive freedom, the Catholic moderates and other irregular churchgoers who swung from George W. Bush to Obama and, yes, the Latinos who made the same jump. ...
"Consider spending your spring on a Hillary-esque 'listening tour' of small roundtable discussions with African-Americans, Latinos and Muslims-not for the cameras, but for actual listening. Allow some unvarnished talk on bigotry in America to seep into your brain. ... You need a real policy team, and you need it now. ... In the general: Pivot like nobody has pivoted before." http://politi.co/1TSZ1Q0 ...
--Matt Latimer, conservative pundit: "The only way to combat Trump's tactics is to steal them. Keep him off balance by doing things he-and, most importantly, the media-won't expect. Instead of the typical debates-or perhaps in addition to them-challenge him to meet you at a community center in Flint ...
"Find your inner Goldwater girl: Trump has alienated many mainstream Republicans ... At the same time, he has won support from evangelicals, moderates, conservatives and even a legion of Democrats. Which means that in 2016, at least, ideology matters less than it ever did. Why not take advantage of this-and play for the Republican middle. ...
"Trump's defense of Planned Parenthood likely isn't just some random act. He's already planning to make a play for the votes of women ... So why not make a play for issues that seem to appeal to men. ... Play the national security card." http://politi.co/1TSZ1Q0
REAL ESTATE -- TAX TALKS-"End of Tax Break Program May Blunt Impact of New York Zoning Change," by Times' William Neuman: "When the New York City Council announced this week that it had reached a deal on a sweeping zoning reform, the agreement was hailed as a major victory, a linchpin to achieving Mayor Bill de Blasio's goal of building 80,000 units of affordable housing. But one stubborn obstacle went unmentioned: The zoning change was meant to work in tandem with a key property tax exemption that no longer exists and can be resurrected only by the State Legislature. Without the tax break, known as 421-a, New York City may have to spend more to subsidize affordable housing, or risk allowing Mr. de Blasio's housing target to go unmet." http://nyti.ms/1Pe97TA
COURT ORDER-"SRO hotel rentals must last at least a month, judges rule," by Post's Jennifer Gould Keil and Laura Italiano: "The city's 300 single room occupancy hotels took a major hit Thursday, when a panel of Manhattan appeals judges ruled that the rooms must be rented for a minimum of one month. The 227-room Imperial Court Hotel, an SRO on West 79th Street, had argued that it had the grandfathered-in right to continue offering one-week rentals after the city tightened its multiple-dwelling law in 2010. The decision hurts SROs and residents who can't afford to pay a month's rent all at once, said the Imperial's lawyer, Charles Chehebar." http://nyp.st/1SXlGJW
IN THE ZONE-"Housing plans clear City Council committee," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "A two-pronged plan to create more below-market-rate housing in New York City cleared a City Council committee vote on Thursday and is headed to the full body next week. The council's land use committee voted 15-2, with one abstention, to approve Mayor Bill de Blasio's plans to enforce more residential construction for low- to moderate-income New Yorkers and ease the city's 55-year-old zoning code to enable that development. 'This is literally the best affordable housing plan of any city in the United States of America,' Councilman David Greenfield, who chairs the committee, said during the hearing." http://politi.co/1RpIEDO

** 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 www.fixnewyork.com. **
