POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by The Business Council's Annual Meeting: JEFFRIES in the wings -- CUOMO's Common Core positioning -- MSNBC's Bronx special

09/04/2015 07:18AM EDT

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

URGING REP. JEFFRIES TO CHALLENGE DE BLASIO -- Times' Alex Burns: "The latest, high-profile overture to Mr. Jeffries came from William C. Thompson Jr., the former city comptroller who in 2013 was the runner-up for the Democratic mayoral nomination. Mr. Thompson recently told Mr. Jeffries that he viewed the congressman as the strongest black candidate who could run against the mayor in 2017 ... [T]he continuing interest in the congressman's future underscored his emerging role in New York politics, as a powerful magnet for the mayor's opponents and possibly - if Mr. Jeffries changes his mind - a genuine threat to Mr. de Blasio's re-election. ... Cuomo is expected to headline a fund-raising event for Mr. Jeffries's congressional campaign this fall."

-- JEFFRIES HIGHLIGHTS UNEASE OVER DE BLASIO'S POLICE-REFORM RECORD -- POLITICO New York's Laura Nahmias and Azi Paybarah: "On paper, Hakeem Jeffries is the nightmare opponent for Bill de Blasio," said Democratic consultant Evan Thies.

-- Councilman Jumaane Williams: "I do wish we had some officers held accountable, quicker ... and wish we didn't see pushback from the department from some [reform legislation], but that doesn't mean there isn't forward movement. ... there is legitimate reason for advocates and activists to be frustrated. I think all of us in government need to be a lot braver, not just in policing, but in how we view public safety."

-- Councilman Rory Lancman: "If I was the mayor I would be looking at my base and looking at what got me elected and concerned about going into 2017 with a credible opponent on the issue of police reform." "If I had someone in my district who important people were encouraging to run against me and that person had a profile that attacked a potential political liability of mine, I would do what I needed to do to address that vulnerability."

CUOMO PUSHES COMMON CORE COMMISSION-POLITICO New York's Eliza Shapiro: Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday he expects to present a legislative package to improve the implementation of Common Core standards in New York when he delivers his State of the State address in January. "We're going to need legislation to change [Common Core]," he told reporters Thursday afternoon shortly after releasing a statement in which he claimed Common Core is "not working" in New York and ordering a new commission to study its implementation. Cuomo acknowledged statewide reaction to the new, tougher academic standards has "only gotten more negative" over the last several years, and said he believes the rollout "hasn't gotten better ... If anything, it's only gotten worse." The governor rejected the notion his remarks on Common Core and the opt out movement put him at odds with MaryEllen Elia, the new state education commissioner, with whom he has not yet met in person.

-- Elia's statement: "Immediately upon being named Commissioner of Education earlier this summer, I began traveling the State to meet with and listen to parents, teachers, principals, superintendents and the public about the ways we can improve the education our children receive. At every one of those meetings, I have stressed the need for high standards for all students. I have also stressed the need to review the State's learning standards - not only because the law requires me to undertake such a review, but also because it's the right thing to do for our students. I look forward to receiving input from the Governor's Education Commission as we continue this critical review of our learning standards."

PHYSICAL ALTERCATION -- Trump aides say protesters were blocking sidewalk -- NY1's Josh Robin: "Protesters clashed with Donald Trump's employees Thursday as the staffers tried to move and take signs from anti-Trump protesters. Some along the Fifth Avenue sidewalk were dressed as members of the KKK. ... The fights came as the Republican frontrunner attempts to broadcast a more tolerant side. 'I love the people of Mexico. I love the Hispanics. I have thousands of Hispanics right now working for me,' Trump said." SEE THE VIDEO:

REQUEST TO PROBE DIVERSITY CONTRACTING -- Post's Carl Campanile: "Real-estate executive Don Peebles, who is considering running against Mayor de Blasio in 2017, has asked Public Advocate Letitia James to investigate the administration for "economic discrimination" by failing to hire more minority contractors. Peebles accuses the city of violating Local Law 1, which says city agencies and contractors must make a 'good faith effort' to hire minority-and women-owned firms. In the letter Thursday, Peebles cites city stats that show firms run by minorities and women received only 4.6 percent of city business in fiscal year 2015."

FEDERAL REPORT SAYS GE CONTAMINATED DRINKING WATER - POLITICO New York's Scott Waldman: Groundwater in at least three upstate towns is contaminated by pollutants that General Electric dumped into the Hudson River for decades, a new federal report has found. The Hudson River Natural Resource Trustees said on Thursday that GE's dumping of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into river exceeded state groundwater standards in Hudson Falls, Fort Edward, and Stillwater for a 'repeated and prolonged' period of time. 'Groundwater provides significant economic and ecological services to the public,' the trustees wrote. 'The ability to use these services has been and continues to be severely curtailed as a result of the PCB and VOC releases.'

--Cuomo said he had not read the latest report, but said he was satisfied with the dredging GE had completed thus far and did not call on them to do any more about their pollution of the Hudson River. "They are completing what they agreed to complete, I know there are claims for them to do more above and beyond that," he said, adding. "I think they should follow the law, and the agreements that have been made."

-- "As Connecticut ponders a future without General Electric , which has threatened to leave the state over its growing corporate tax bill, some say the rift between the Fortune 500 superpower and the state really started years ago, in a battle over fighter-jet engines."

-- Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy poured salt on the wound, opening his pitch to GE with a photo of a Pratt & Whitney engine.

-- GE has started hiring for a new facility in Utica.

MEDIA MORNING -- "Al Jazeera America employees join News Guild," by POLITICO's Sterne: "About 50 digital editorial employees at Al Jazeera America have decided to join The News Guild, POLITICO has learned. ...As POLITICO previously reported, The News Guild recently launched a $500,000 campaign to organize digital newsrooms and is pursuing union drives at eight new media companies: AJAM, POLITICO, The Huffington Post and five others that have not yet been made public."

-- "MSNBC special on the Bronx to feature Tantoco, Blake," by Politico's Miranda Neubauer: "An MSNBC special highlighting the Bronx on September 10 will include interviews with the city's chief technology officer, Minerva Tantoco, and Assemblyman Michael Blake. The show will feature a community event Blake is hosting with #YesWeCode, an initiative founded by Van Jones to connect low-opportunity young people with computer programming resources and tools. MSNBC's Frances Rivera will be reporting live from the Old Bronx County Courthouse as part of the Ford-sponsored 'Growing Hope Live from the Bronx' special at 2 p.m. The broadcast will examine jobs of the future and changes in technology."

AFTER THE REPORT AND THE DEBATE -- News' Harry Siegel, on the Bill Bratton-inspired Moynihan Report debate: "The multi-generational poverty Moynihan warned of has come to pass, and the American conversation about race has become stale and repetitious. Instead of trying to untangle a knot of racism, poverty and dysfunction, we seem to be in an endless argument about who's to blame for tying it."

COUNCIL RACE IN QUEENS -- New Yorkers for Progress spent $12,345 supporting former De Blasio aide Rebecca Lynch in the Democratic primary in CD-23, according to the NYCCFB. The treasure for that organization is Sam Nagourney, of a principal at Hilltop Public Solutions, the consulting firm that helped run and maintains ties to Mayor de Blasio. -- Azi

COUNCIL TO NOMINATE NEW MEMBER TO HHC BOARD -- POLITICO New York's Dan Goldberg and Sally Goldenberg: Helen Arteaga, the founder of Plaza del Sol Health Center in Corona, is expected to be nominated by the City Council to serve on the board of directors for the Health and Hospitals Corporation. Arteaga would replace Anna Kril, founder of Astoria/Queens SHAREing & CAREing, a cancer support group. Kril, who declined to comment, was one of many social service leaders who criticized Mayor Bill de Blasio during this past year's budget debate when it appeared several groups, including Kril's, would not receive their usual allotment of funding because of a change in how that money was awarded. A de Blasio administration spokeswoman said they look forward to the Council's designation.

SINGLE-FAMILY SLUMP-"Almost Half of Homes in New York and D.C. Are Now Losing Value," by Bloomberg's Prashant Gopal : "Almost half of single-family houses in the New York and Washington metropolitan areas are losing value, a sign that buyers' tolerance for high prices in many large U.S. cities may be reaching a limit. The values of 45 percent of houses in both the Washington and New York areas slumped by at least 2 percent in June from a year earlier, according to a new index created by Allan Weiss, co-founder of the Case-Shiller home price indexes. In June 2014, only 15 percent of Washington residences dropped in value, while 20 percent fell in New York. Because the index is of only single-family homes, it doesn't include Manhattan."

GETTING TO THE HAMPTONS -- DNAinfo's Shaye Weaver: "The Department of Transportation is proposing two new permanent Hampton Jitney stops to replace one temporary pick up point on Lexington Avenue, in hopes of easing sidewalk crowding by spacing out the stops. If the plan moves forward, the new bus stops would be located at 1082 Lexington Ave., between East 76th and 77th streets, and at 1224 Lexington Ave., between East 82nd and 83rd streets, and would replace the temporary pickup point on the avenue between 85th and 86th streets. The Hampton Jitney also pitched a plan to move its first Upper East Side stop from Lexington Avenue between East 85th and 86th streets to the north side of East 96th Street, which would put it the 11th district's jurisdiction, and would have to be discussed with CB11, according to Scott Falk, the co-chair of Community Board 8's Transportation Committee."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Sky 82, Liberty 60: Likely WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne returned to the court after missing a pair of games with a foot injury and scored 19 points, while the Sky made nine threes in a blowout win.

-- The day ahead: the Mets are in Miami. The Yankees host the Rays.

- "Prokhorov nears deal to buy all of Barclays Center, Nets," by Post's Josh Kosman and Tim Bontemps: "Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov is nearing a deal to buy all of the Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets from Bruce Ratner's Forest City Enterprises, The Post has learned. Prokhorov has been in talks to buy the 55 percent of the arena and 20 percent of the NBA team he does not already own. Under the deal being discussed, he would kick in little cash beyond forgiving the roughly $31 million Forest City owes him to cover team losses, according to two sources familiar with the situation."
