POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by PhRMA: DE BLASIO's coming endorsement of HILLARY -- CITY ROOM ends -- MMV to raise for Latino super PAC

10/27/2015 07:35 AM EDT

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

DE BLASIO PLANS A HILLARY ENDORSEMENT BEFORE HIS FORUM -- POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: Mayor Bill de Blasio's endorsement of Hillary Clinton now appears to be a question of when, not if. A Clinton campaign source told POLITICO New York that de Blasio's team has been in talks with the former senator's camp about the possibility of an endorsement, and a person familiar with de Blasio's thinking said the mayor was expected to endorse her "very soon and before the forum" he's holding in Iowa City on Dec. 6.

-- Clinton's campaign released a list of New York supporters, that notably did not include de Blasio.

-- WSJ's Josh Dawsey: "Aides to the mayor are deciding how to roll out the endorsement. News of the talks between the de Blasio and Clinton camps on a possible endorsement were reported earlier Monday by Politico New York."

-- A.P. headline: "De Blasio to Become Final Major NY Official to Endorse Clinton."

CUOMO, DE BLASIO AND HILLARY - POLITICO New York's Dana Rubinstein: Cuomo said Monday that everyone who is anyone in New York State has already endorsed Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. "I believe she's going to be the overwhelming favorite of this state," Cuomo said during an evening interview on NY1. "I think she already is. You look at the list of her supporters, everybody is on the list." On Monday, the Clinton campaign released the names on her New York State "leadership council," a team of more than 100 Democrats that included Cuomo, every other state- and city-wide Democrat, every Democratic congressperson, and both U.S. senators. The list did not, however, include Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has very publicly declined to endorse Clinton just yet, arguing he needs to hear more about her progressive platform first. ... After Clinton's list came out, POLITICO New York reported the Clinton campaign and de Blasio's team were negotiating the terms of an endorsement. "Anyone who is not with her yet, the few stragglers, are going to wind up coming on board," Cuomo said Monday evening. "You can't call yourself a Democrat in New York, you can't call yourself a progressive Democrat and support Bernie Sanders."

DEBATE AT THE BEACH - ABC News: "The artifacts lining Dead Horse Bay's shores are more than just garbage. They are the remnants of destroyed neighborhoods across the city, a half buried monument to the lives of hundreds of displaced New Yorkers, and a portal to a time when New York and the United States were undergoing a remarkable transformation. "The truth of our lives is not always in the stories we tell but in the stories we leave behind with our stuff," Robin Nagle, the anthropologist in residence for the New York Department of Sanitation, told ABC News. "And lives are strewn across the beach at Dead Horse Bay," she said. ... The popularity of treasure picking at Dead Horse Bay has given rise to an unusual debate over what to do with its garbage-covered beaches. Under federal law, it is illegal to remove anything, including decaying and toxic garbage, from Dead Horse Bay, because the area is part of a protected national park. "We're also tasked with preserving and protecting the waters under our control," said Lincoln Hallowell, a park ranger with the Gateway National Recreation Area. "So where is that balance? How do we explain to the public we're protecting historic trash?"

TISCH EXIT PROMPTS COMMON CORE QUESTION - POLITICO New York's Keshia Clukey: " Monday's announcement from state Board of Regents chancellor Merryl Tisch that she will be leaving the board when her term ends in March wasn't unexpected, but it could lead to dramatic change. Tisch has been a strong advocate of the Common Core learning standards, and she'll be departing amid calls from Governor Andrew Cuomo, as well as many critics, for an overhaul. Tisch said she would like to take the last few months of her term to "calm the waters," adding that stepping away from the heated debates over education policy "will only help."

"Tisch told the board she will continue to be independent and outspoken in the education debates. 'I want to do this with the least politics and most independence as possible.' When asked what she will press harder on in the upcoming months Tisch told POLITICO New York: 'Everything.'"

MARK-VIVERITO TO RAISE FOR LATINO SUPER PAC - POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito is expecting to travel around the country, host rallies and lead fundraisers for top latino candidates and the democratic presidential nominee. The fundraising efforts are part of a mission assigned by the Latino Victory Fund, the fundraising arm of the Latino Victory Project - a super pac that raises money and resources for Latino candidates across the country.

The appointment is a win of sorts for the speaker... For months, Mark-Viverito, a native of Puerto Rico has been working to cast herself as one of the country's leading Latino politicians. "It'll be like being a spokesperson, a type of cheerleader for the mission and the goals of the Latino Victory Fund, to mobilize and energize the Latino community to make sure that we are supporting candidates that uphold our values," Mark-Viverito said in an interview with POLITICO New York. As honorary co-chair Mark-Viverito will not be involved in the day-to-day decisions of the group but will be expected to turn out at events for the pac and appear at rallies organized by them.

As Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to conspicuously hold out on endorsing Democratic front-runner and former boss Hillary Clinton, Mark-Viverito instead appeared at an anti-trump rally beside Clinton just weeks after endorsing her. "All of us combined will be responsible to speak on behalf, to rally, to go to events and also work with the candidates the fund will actually endorse," Mark-Viverito said. "It's about not taking our community for granted, we are a population with an influential vote."

Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made a surprise appearance at a rally for Verizon workers in Midtown Manhattan yesterday. Observer's Ross Barkan:

SCOOP: Candidate to replace Rangel, Clyde Williams, has D.C. fund-raiser -- Tom Daschle headlines, Rouse co-hosts -- POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah: Clyde Williams, the former political director for the Democratic National Committee who is running for the congressional seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Charles Rangel, is kicking off his campaign with a fund-raiser next month headlined by former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle.

The Nov. 9 event in Washington, D.C., will be co-hosted by Rouse, who served as President Barack Obama's chief of staff. The event is expected to draw a number of people with ties to the Obama and Clinton organizations, with whom Williams has connections and relied upon for support during his previous run for Congress. In a statement, Williams said he is "honored" that Daschle, "one of our party's most well respected public servants, has endorsed me so early in this race. In the 2008 Presidential race, then Senator Barack Obama also welcomed the early endorsement of Senator Daschle, long before many other party leaders expressed their public support for his winning campaign."

BONUS QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We've seen massive congestion problems both on the subway cars and platforms themselves, and then in addition to that, in the run up to the [Queensboro Bridge] ... That's why I am saying now we need to focus on this investment into our mass transit. The MoveNY plan is the best and most responsible way to get us there." -- Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, endorsing tolls on the East River, via News' Dan Rivoli:

MEDIA MORNING -- "City Room, a Blog With a Broad Mandate, Is Retiring," by NYT's Andy Newman: "[E]ight years, 20,000 posts, 425,000 reader comments and perhaps 100 million clicks later, City Room has an announcement to make: This is our last post. The reasons are mostly boring journalism-business stuff. In 2007, blogs were the wave of the future. At its blogmaniacal peak, The Times had about 80 of them. ... Now The Times has only about 20 active blogs."

--"New York Times shuts down City Room blog, to surprising chorus of grief," by Politico Media's Jeremy Barr : "Newman, in an email to POLITICO, said that Metro editor (and former City Room editor) Wendell Jamieson made the final call to shut it down, and that 'there were no objections.' Things had been headed in that direction for a while now, it seems. 'Some people have greeted the news of City Room's demise as if The Times has just killed off a blog in the prime of its life,' Newman said. 'The fact that no one seems to have noticed that City Room had been going gradually dormant for a couple of years indicates to me that people have been getting City Room-like stuff from The Times for a while and just not noticed that it wasn't on City Room.'"

STAGGERING NUMBERS -- "Despite Vow, Mayor de Blasio Struggles to Curb Homelessness," by Times' Nikita Stewart and J. David Goodman: "By one key measure after another, homelessness in New York City has worsened over the last two years. The number of people entering city shelters has increased under Mayor Bill de Blasio, and when they enter the system, people are staying longer, striking markers of a crisis that has forced its way to the top of the mayor's agenda. As of Thursday, 57,448 people - more than 40 percent of them children - were sleeping in shelters overseen by the Department of Homeless Services, and organizations that aid homeless people are worried that in the coming months, as cold weather sets in, the numbers will return to the record high of December, when the peak was 59,068. ... Single adults stayed an average of about 11 months, or 24 days longer than in the previous fiscal year. Families without children stayed an average of nearly 18 months, up 19 days, and families with children stayed an average of just over 14 months, up by three days."

POLITICO MAGAZINE's "What Works" series- "U.S. Mayors to Congress: 'Get a Backbone' and Pass Gun Control," by Ben Wofford: "Nearly across the board, the urban and suburban mayors-where the vast preponderance of the nation's crime and gun violence occurs-were disturbed by rising homicide trends."

REMEMBERING VIRGIL CONWAY - Times' Sam Roberts: "E. Virgil Conway, who as chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority presided over the first subway and bus fare abatement in the system's history, the retirement of the iconic token and a surge in ridership, died on Wednesday in the Southampton, N.Y., hospital where he was born. He was 85. ... Mr. Conway, a lawyer and banker, was appointed chairman in 1995 by Gov. George E. Pataki of New York, a fellow Republican, and served until 2001. While New York State pared spending for operations and capital improvements, Mr. Conway initiated an ambitious construction program. He broke ground for a Long Island Rail Road spur to Grand Central Terminal on the East Side of Manhattan and burrowed again to revive the dormant Second Avenue subway project."

THE TALK OF WALL STREET -- "Bankers for Bernie: Inside the 'socialist' senator's lonely Wall Street fan club," by Politico's Ben Schreckinger: "[A] small minority [is] defying stereotypes and shattering taboos across New York City's finer eateries and trading pits this primary season: Wall Street financiers who support the presidential bid of Vermont's self-described 'socialist' senator, Bernie Sanders. ... [A] dive into Sanders' donor rolls from the second and third quarters reveals that of the tens of thousands of Americans listed as contributors on Sanders' campaign finance reports, well over a hundred work in the financial services sector. Most are west of the Mississippi at small firms and local bank branches, where Sanders' calls to rein in Wall Street do not hit so close to home. More noteworthy are the lonely few-roughly two dozen-who work in high finance in Manhattan."

-- "Blackstone Partner Rose to Retire as Public Affairs Head," by Bloomberg's Devin Banerjee: "Rose, 64, will leave New York-based Blackstone at the end of January and become a senior adviser to the firm ... He'll be replaced by Christine Anderson. 'He has fostered an incredibly wide network of close relations around the world, and built up a level of trust and respect that is rare,' [Steve] Schwarzman and [Tony] James wrote of Rose, praising the former lawyer's 'unending patience, good humor and a strong commitment to the firm.'"

TURNOVER AT DFS AFTER DISPUTES WITH CUOMO'S OFFICE - The Wall Street Journal's Erica Orden: "The acting head of New York's top banking regulator and the agency's chief spokesman are resigning from the office amid the agency's battle with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration over the regulator's independence, according to people familiar with the matter.Anthony Albanese, the acting superintendent of the Department of Financial Services, and spokesman Matthew Anderson informed the governor's office in recent weeks that they would resign, these people said. There have been growing tensions between DFS and the office of Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, since Mr. Albanese's predecessor, Benjamin Lawsky, left the agency in June to start his own legal and consulting firm, the people said."

BACKLASH TO DE BLASIO'S BAIL PLAN -- DNAinfo's Jeff Mays: "Glenn Martin, a criminal justice reform advocate and founder of JustLeadershipUSA, said he was disappointed by the mayor's "harsh" and 'regressive' rhetoric. 'I think this is yet another example of how progressives run for the hills whenever there is a challenge to their own policies or the chance of them being called soft on crime,' said Martin, who spent six years in prison. ... Martin said there is a clear contradiction in de Blasio's rhetoric and policy positions because it fails to recognize that an overwhelming majority of those convicted of crime, regardless of their offense, will eventually be freed."

SHARPTON'S ROLE AT POLICE FUNERAL -- Attending, not speaking? -- Post's Sarah Trefethen and Larry Celona: "Slain NYPD Officer Randolph Holder's fiancée was stunned to hear that the Rev. Al Sharpton was asked to speak at his funeral - because the policeman detested the anti-cop preacher, she told The Post on Monday. 'He didn't like [Sharpton]. He wasn't a fan. So I don't know why [Sharpton] is speaking,' Mary Muhammad said. Sharpton claims that he met with Holder's father and that the dad asked him to speak at Wednesday's service. ... [L]aw-enforcement sources said Holder's dad, Randolph Sr., called the NYPD on Monday morning - after news of Sharpton's supposed invite broke - to tell them he invited the preacher only to attend the funeral, not to address mourners. The sources added that Sharpton would not be speaking at the service. Sharpton dodged questions from The Post on Monday afternoon, saying, 'An invitation was extended. And I'm not addressing it 'til Wednesday.'"

--"The cruel consequence of a well-intentioned drug law overhaul," by Bill Hammond for Politico New York: "The shooting death of New York City police officer Randolph Holder is awakening New Yorkers to just how substantially the Legislature rewrote the state's drug laws in 2009, and even progressives like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Al Sharpton are expressing shock at the results. And appalling it was to learn that the man accused of shooting Holder, 30-year-old Tyrone Howard, was a career criminal who could have been locked up earlier this year for dealing drugs. But thanks to Albany's six-year-old reforms, Howard was given a humane second chance, qualifying for a stint in rehab instead of prison. Last Tuesday night, Howard repaid that kindness with a bullet to the head of a police officer who was doing his job, chasing down suspects in an East Harlem gang shoot-out."

GUN CONTROL PROPOSAL, BY 2017 HOPEFULS -- Post's Michael Gartland: "Four potential 2017 mayoral candidates came together Monday to support federal legislation that would toughen gun laws. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Comptroller Scott Stringer, Public Advocate Letitia James and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams - all mentioned as possible mayoral contenders in two years - joined Rep. Nydia Velazquez at City Hall to back her new bill adding a $100 tax on gun sales and strengthening tracking requirements for lost or stolen firearms. The money raised would go towards mental health and anti-violence programs."

FREE SATs -- Times' Elizabeth Harris: "As part of a push to encourage more students to apply to college, New York City will begin offering the SAT free to all public school juniors, Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña announced on Monday. The test will be given during the school day - not on a Saturday, as is now the common practice. Education officials said that by removing barriers to entry - like the required fee and the very act of signing up - the hope is that students who might not otherwise have taken the test will do so. 'The opportunity to go to college should never be decided by students' backgrounds or ZIP codes,' Ms. Fariña said in a statement. ... With this change, which will take effect in the spring of the 2016-17 school year, the city joins several statewide efforts to increase the number of students taking college entrance exams, like the SAT or ACT."

UBER, FOR THE COLLEGE DRINKING CROWD -- Times' Emma Fitzsimmons: "As part of the ride-hailing service Uber's push to expand to upstate New York, it has a specific message for college students: We want to help you get home safely after a night of drinking. ... The company's app is popular among millennials, but it is not available in upstate college towns. Uber officials hope the State Legislature will pass new rules allowing the service to move beyond New York City next year. ... As part of the company's efforts to adopt a softer tone, officials have said the service can help reduce drunken driving. ... In the next few weeks, the university's student assembly plans to vote on a resolution to support new ride-hailing legislation. ... The state chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving plans to lobby for a ride-hailing bill during the next legislative session, which begins in January."

REAL ESTATE -- BROOKLYN'S SECRETS-"Dead Horse Bay: New York's Hidden Treasure Trove," by ABC's Evan Simon and Olivia Smith: "The trail to Dead Horse Bay is easy to overlook, but Gerard Barbot knows the way. The Brooklyn-based artist has been coming to this desolate cove on the outskirts of New York City for 25 years, and by now he can spot the trailhead with ease. Hidden behind an unassuming bus stop on the southwestern corner of Brooklyn, the unmarked path leads Barbot beneath a canopy of black cherry trees flanked by thickets of invasive reeds. Gradually, the roar of traffic on Flatbush Avenue fades to just a murmur as the earth under foot morphs into sand. ...

"Barbot knows the artifacts lining Dead Horse Bay's shores are more than just garbage. They are the remnants of destroyed neighborhoods across the city, a half buried monument to the lives of hundreds of displaced New Yorkers, and a portal to a time when New York and the United States were undergoing a remarkable transformation."

PLAYING NICE-"Cuomo official on de Blasio's 'laudable' housing plans," by POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg: "A top housing official from Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration praised Mayor Bill de Blasio's housing plans during a speech Monday night - a rare show of public accord between the dueling administrations. James Rubin, commissioner of New York State Homes and Community Renewal, called de Blasio's goal of creating more low-income housing through rezoning land 'laudable one way or another' during a nine-minute keynote speech at the New York City Housing Partnership.

"He said he 'totally agree(s) with the goal' of increasing the housing stock but warned 'there's only a finite amount of developable land and every action has another reaction, so it's an extraordinarily complicated field.'"

OFFICE SPACE-"KKR near deal to buy large chunk of offices at 30 Hudson Yards," by Post's Steve Cuozzo: "KKR is on the brink of completing a deal to buy a big chunk of office space at Related Cos./Oxford's Hudson Yards, we are told. Sources said an announcement may come as early as this week. The publicly traded equity firm was previously reported in talks for a Hudson Yards stake of up to 400,000 square feet, but it was never known at which building. We're told it will be at the 90-story 30 Hudson Yards, now under construction at Tenth Avenue and West 33rd Street."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Alex Rodriguez said on a press call for Fox Sports today that he could see the Mets winning three or four World Series over the next five years.

-- Finger-challenged pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul arrived at the Giants training facility Monday, and several reports suggest he could sign as soon as this week, though when he'll be healthy enough to play is unknown.

-- The day ahead: The Mets try to fulfill A-Rod's prophecy, starting with Game 1 of the 2015 World Series in Kansas City on the 29th anniversary of their last World Series win. Matt Harvey will start. The Sabres are in Philadelphia.

COFFEE BREAK - "After comedy, Jon Stewart to start animal sanctuary" - AFP/NYC: "[Wife] Tracey Stewart, surrounded by Jon and the couple's two children, announced that the family had bought a farm in New Jersey to serve as the group's latest animal sanctuary accompanied by an educational center."

#UpstateAmerica: A man named Indiana Jones led the Yates County Sheriff's Office on a high speed chase Sunday night.
