POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by PhRMA: DE BLASIO to Israel -- SKDKnickerbocker bought by Mark Penn firm -- BRATTON's promise

10/09/2015 07:14 AM EDT

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

DE BLASIO HEADS TO ISRAEL -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: Mayor Bill de Blasio will travel to Israel next week, making his first visit the country since being elected mayor last year. During his visit, de Blasio will deliver the keynote address at the annual Conference of Mayors, where he will speak on the topic of anti-Semitism in the west and how cities must face that challenge, according to an advisory from the administration. The conference is being hosted by the American Jewish Congress, the American Council for World Jewry, and World Forum of Russian-Speaking Jewry which will convene dozens of mayors from around the world "to discuss the issues and challenges facing cities," a spokesperson for the mayor said.

-- Paying for it: According to information provided by City Hall, the cost of the trip and lodging for both the mayor and his staff will be covered by a "private gift to the city" by Israeli entrepreneur Baruch Eliezer Gross, and will incur no cost to taxpayers. Gross is the CEO of Besadno, an Israeli incubator and start-up firm. In a statement to POLITICO New York, Gross said, "I'm honored to join Mayor de Blasio in his fight against anti-Semitism and in support of tolerance. New York City can provide other cities with a model for protecting all communities against hate."

CUOMO AND GORE SING CLIMATE PRAISES - POLITICO New York's David Giambusso: In his second climate speech in a week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo stood with former Vice President Al Gore to announce New York will participate in a global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and keep global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius. "We know what needs to be done, we just need the political will to do it," Cuomo told a standing-room only crowd at Columbia's Lerner Auditorium. "We are well underway." Cuomo signed the "Under 2 MOU" - a pact of states, cities and provinces throughout the world that have committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050. The agreement is largely symbolic, as New York has already committed to the 80-by-50 goal as part of its state energy plan and the Cuomo administration has executed an aggressive regulatory upheaval to boost market demand for renewable energy.

-- WHAT ABOUT CHRISTIE? Part of Cuomo's announcement includes a push to get other states to join a cap and trade program similar to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. But when asked if Cuomo would convince New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to come back into the RGGI fold, Cuomo said "You'd have to talk to Governor Christie about that."

MTA DRAMA -- Cuomo laughs off de Blasio accusations of raiding agency funds -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday derided the assertion - backed by both the city and transportation advocates - that he has a history of taking money intended for the MTA and redirecting it elsewhere.

-- "It's a joke," said Cuomo. "It's crystal clear." Mayor Bill de Blasio, with whom Cuomo is feuding, has pointed to Cuomo's redirection of money intended for mass transit as one reason he's unsure whether to dramatically increase the city's contribution to the MTA's $30 billion capital plan. "It's not a joke," said Gene Russianoff of the Straphangers Campaign.

-- According to the city, in fiscal year 2011-12, the state raided $200 million from the MTA, although, for very arcane reasons, there is a debate among wonks about whether that number is more accurately $100 million, according to John Kaehny, executive director of Reinvent Albany. "We have to have the raid council get together and have a talmudic conversation to parse the details," he said. Kaehny also noted out that the city's calculations might actually be understating the size of the raids because they don't take into account the money Cuomo siphoned from the MTA when he cut tolls on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, which is operated by the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority, an MTA subsidiary.

MARK PENN'S COMPANY TO BUY SKDKnickerbocker -- Empire building: SKDKnickerbocker, the public relations firm best known for its Democratic campaign consulting, is being bought by the Stagwell Group, a private equity firm founded by former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and run by former ad executive and political strategist Mark Penn. Penn, a former pollster and strategist who worked on Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, had approached SKDKnickerbocker's partners about the possible deal in recent months, the Times reported. The sale price for the firm, which the Times reported has annual revenue near $50 million, was not disclosed. NYT's David Gelles wrote, "It is the first step in what Mr. Penn said would be an attempt to create a cohesive group of advertising, research, public relations and marketing companies. Penn told Gelles, "It's a bit of a Noah's ark, but we'll have one of each kind." Read the full report here: The press release

RIP MICHAEL HYMAN - "NYC Public Affairs firm Geto & de Milly, Inc. mourns the loss of longtime receptionist and librarian Michael Hyman, who passed away this past weekend. 'Michael was one of a kind. His mellifluous voice was immediately recognizable and his warmth, quiet wit and calming manner made him a beloved colleague in the office and amongst our clients,' said Michele de Milly."

DE BLASIO'S FIRST TOWN HALL -- City to spend $1M touting rent-freeze -- Times' Mireya Navarro: "Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration will spend $1 million on ads intended to promote the rent freeze enacted this year for New York's rent-regulated tenants, timing the campaign to roughly coincide with the first town hall-style meeting Mr. de Blasio has held since being elected. The forum, to include about 250 tenants in Washington Heights, is scheduled for Wednesday and will address 'rent security and tenant protection,' according to the mayor's office. While Mr. de Blasio, a Democrat, has been criticized for failing to hold such meetings, preserving the city's low-cost housing stock is among his stated priorities.

-- "The ads, which will start appearing this month in newspapers and on the subway system, as well as on radio and online ... being paid for by the Human Resources Administration ... City officials are also organizing a door-to-door campaign to notify 100,000 tenants about the rent freeze and the services available to those who face eviction or harassment by landlords. The meeting on Wednesday will be at Gregorio Luperón High School for Science and Mathematics on West 165th Street at 7 p.m."

FOLLOW THE MONEY -- "The city's campaign finance board ruled that The Advance Group helped New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets dodge campaign finance limits." Associated Press:

-- Fallout: "Michael McMahon's campaign manager is resigning after the consulting firm he works for was fined almost $26,000 for skirting campaign finance laws during two 2013 City Council campaigns. The McMahon campaign announced Thursday that Jonathan Yedin, who has been running Democratic McMahon's campaign for district attorney and is on leave from Manhattan-based political consulting company the Advance Group, would step down because of the announcement of the penalties." S.I. Advance's Rachel Shapiro:

OUT -- 'FDNY's first-ever diversity officer out after less than a year' -- Post's Susan Edelman and Joe Tacopino: "The FDNY's first chief diversity and inclusion officer is leaving the post after less than a year on the job, the FDNY said Thursday. Pamela Lassiter was sworn in Jan. 30. ... The position was created after a judge ruled that the FDNY's entrance exam was biased against minorities. Commissioner Daniel Nigro, in a statement on Lassiter's exit, stressed the FDNY's progress in improving that record. 'Our commitment to becoming a more diverse and inclusive department has never been stronger and will continue to be a key strategic initiative,' he said. The FDNY would not say why Lassiter left."

BRATTON PROMISES 'BEST CRIME YEAR' EVER -- 'GUARANTEED' -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: After swearing in 678 new police recruits in Queens on Thursday ... the commissioner told reporters the city is on track for historic low crime. "I always talk about, he [Mayor Bill de Blasio] gives me everything I'm looking for ... And believe me, I went through the ringer, justifying it. And the benefits are going to be very evident. How are they going to be evident? This year, we will end the year with historic low crime. Guaranteed. By the end of this year, we will have the best crime year in the history of this city. Going into next year, my projection would be we'll have a good year next year, because we're going to have a lot more resources to work with, on that already-low crime rate."

NEW U.S. ATTORNEY IN BROOKLYN -- Robert Capers tapped by Obama -- POLITICO New York's Colby Hamilton: President Barack Obama officially nominated veteran federal prosecutor Robert Capers to take over as the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, the White House announced Thursday. Soon after the president's announcement, Attorney General Loretta Lynch - whom Capers would succeed in heading the Eastern District of New York - said Capers will also become acting U.S. attorney Oct. 19, replacing the current acting U.S. attorney Kelly Currie, who has headed the office since Lynch's departure earlier this year.

-- A prosecutor with more than two decades of experience, Capers was born in the Bronx and attended Albany Law School. Before joining the Eastern District in 2003, he served as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan, as well as in the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor - an area of law he continued to focus on in the U.S. attorney's office in Brooklyn, where he rose to be chief of the narcotics section.

EVA EXPLAINED -- No longer a candidate, Eva Moskowitz positions herself to win on charters -- POLITICO New York's Eliza Shapiro: Success Academy CEO Eva Moskowitz can now turn her attention to education campaigns at home and across the country that are more easily attainable. "I am not running because I think what could be accomplished in public education is game-changing, is life-changing," Moskowitz said during a press conference Thursday on the steps of City Hall. The implication was that Success can change New York City schools and influence education reform nationwide, as long as she continues to run it.

-- Education takeover: Moskowitz's grandest publicly-articulated ambition is to expand Success Academy to 100 schools over the next decade. She's already well on her way: Success has 34 schools, with more than a dozen more set to open in the next few years. If Moskowitz succeeds in reaching a 100-school network while maintaining the extremely high test scores her schools boast, she will be able to simultaneously change the way New York City's public schools are run and advance her role as a nationally-heralded charter school advocate. But many political observers and even Moskowitz allies have said that running for mayor would have likely been a losing proposition.

-- Eva, 2021: She did not rule out a mayoral bid in 2021. "... I like politics and policy, I like campaigning, I like talking to New Yorkers about the problems that they face." ... De Blasio was brief when asked at an unrelated press conference Thursday about Moskowitz's decision not to run. "She's made her choice," he said.

-- Eva's endorsement: "Moskowitz said Thursday that she would be willing to back another candidate with an education-reform agenda in 2017. At the moment, she said, 'I don't see that candidate out there.'" NYT's Alex Burns and Kate Taylor:

THE METS--DODGERS BET -- Police chiefs wager pastrami sandwiches -- Gothamist's Carman Tse: "As the Dodgers and Mets face each other in the National League Divisional Series starting this Friday, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and NYPD Chief Bill Bratton have made a lunch wager over the winner of the series. If the Dodgers win, Bratton will have to buy Beck lunch at New York's Katz's Deli, while Beck will have to get lunch for Bratton at Langer's. 'As with our Kings-Rangers Stanley Cup bet in 2014 when the Kings won, it's too bad that Commissioner Bratton will not be able to enjoy his favorite Los Angeles Deli,' said Beck in a statement from Langer's.

BHARARA: OBLIGED TO DISCUSS PUBLIC CORRUPTION - Gannett's Jon Campbell: "U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on Wednesday defended his efforts to publicize his office's public-corruption cases, saying it is his "obligation" to discourage public officials from committing similar crimes. Bharara, the top federal prosecutor for New York's Southern District, spoke Wednesday at the New York University School of Law, taking questions from a moderator and law students who made up the audience. When asked about the high-profile corruption cases he's brought against officials like now-former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, the talk quickly shifted to criticism of Bharara's office's public handling of the cases, which had led the judge in Silver's case to chide the prosecutor."

-- Bharara on his jurisdiction: "'Are you familiar with Earth?'"

REAL ESTATE -- MARKING TERRITORY-"After decades in the shadows, historic sites get a hearing," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "From a cemetery to an abandoned pumping station to an eye-catching neon Pepsi Cola sign, New Yorkers debated the significance of these old sites on Thursday as the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission weighs whether to grant the sites historic status in the coming year. In many cases, residents spoke as much about the sites' nostalgic value as their architectural and historic significance."

-"The Bronx's Immaculate Conception Church Opposes Landmark Designation," by YIMBY's Evan Bindelglass: "Among (the items) was the Immaculate Conception Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and its convent and priests' residence located, respectively, at 378 East 151st Street and 375-395 East 150th Street. While advocates support designating the campus as an individual landmark, the church itself says it wouldn't be able to handle it."

BIG BUYS-"Vanbarton Group Buys Riverdale Crossing in the Bronx for $133M," by Commercial Observer's Damian Ghigliotty: "The New York-based real estate investment and advisory firm Vanbarton Group bought Riverdale Crossing, a shopping center anchored by a soon-to-open BJ's Wholesale Club in the Bronx, for $133 million, Commercial Observer can first report. The acquisition closed today.

"The 159,037-square-foot shopping center was developed and sold by Angelo Gordon & Co. in a joint venture with Metropolitan Realty Associates and is 98 percent leased to nationally recognized retail tenants, according to the buyer. The transit-oriented development is located at Broadway and West 237th Street, at the foot of the 1 train subway line and adjacent to the Major Deegan Expressway."

-"Blackstone to buy BioMed in $8B transaction," by Real Deal's Ariel Stulberg: "Blackstone Group's real estate division is taking another massive bet, this time on property linked to the U.S. biotechnology sector. The private equity firm will snap up BioMed Realty Trust in a stock transaction worth a staggering $8 billion. Blackstone will pay $23.75 a share for the San Diego-based REIT, a 24 percent premium on its pre-deal share price."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Red Bulls 2, Impact 1: Lloyd Sam and Sacha Kljestan scored, and the Red Bulls moved even closer to clinching both the Eastern Conference top seed and the Supporters' Shield.

-- Matt Harvey attended a mandatory Mets workout. He showed up on time.

-- The day ahead: the Sabres open at home against the Senators.

--"Islanders Face a Mixed Welcome in Their New Brooklyn Home," by Times' Vivian Yee: "It would be fair to say that Long Islanders' relationship to the Barclays Center, where the Islanders open their first season in Brooklyn against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday, is a work in progress. Within New York City, however, those in charge of Brooklynizing the Islanders - be it ever so slightly - are hoping that the team's arrival will mint a new generation of hockey fans. ... Of the more than 8,000 full season tickets sold so far, 33 percent of buyers are from Brooklyn and Manhattan and 30 percent from Nassau and Suffolk Counties, with the rest scattered around the other boroughs and Connecticut, New York and New Jersey."
