EDITOR’S NOTE

JON LENTZ Editor-in-chief

FORBES HAS ITS LIST of the world’s wealthiest people. Fortune has a list of the country’s biggest companies. U.S. News and World Report has its list of top colleges and universities. Here at City & State, what we’re perhaps best known for is our weekly Winners & Losers, an irreverent recap of the five political figures who won the news cycle – and another five who experienced a particularly noteworthy misadventure or mishap. Given the list’s popularity, we are once again taking the concept and extending it to the past 12 months to bring you the Winners & Losers of 2018. And just like our weekly list, we encourage you to go online and vote. But that’s not the only list that City & State is known for. We also do annually updated rankings of the most powerful political figures in Albany, New York City, each of the five boroughs, Westchester County and Long Island, along with power lists of women, people who are openly LGBT, nonprofit executives and labor leaders – with more to come in 2019. Last but certainly not least, there are our lists of rising stars in both city and state government. As we wind down the year, we’re bringing it all to you in a single magazine – our List of Lists.

Latest CUOMO THE PROGRESSIVE Cuomo made his pot announcement during a speech in which he laid out his 2019 priorities. His other ideas represented a notably progressive slate as he called for an end to vacancy decontrol, a ban on political contributions from corporations and a Green New Deal that would make the state carbon neutral by 2040. Though his speech contained many promises, Cuomo offered few details and made no mention of several progressive priorities like singlepayer health care.

ROLLING UP TO THE PARTY After their long opposition to the legalization of recreational marijuana, both Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio have announced their support for the move. Cuomo had previously indicated he was moving in the direction of legalization, though he fell short of fully endorsing the idea. That changed when he laid out his 2019 legislative priorities and said that state should legalize the drug “once and for all.” Just a few days later, the de Blasio administration released a report recommending legalization, with a few caveats that included expunging criminal records related to marijuana and not allowing smoking in public.

Back & Forth

A Q&A with Davidoff Hutcher and Citron Senior Partner

Sid Davidoff

The

New York City Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen announced that she would step down early next year. The move comes amid criticism over the city’s deal with Amazon to bring the company to Queens and as the city Housing Authority faces a potential federal takeover in the wake of an ongoing crisis. Glen, who also oversaw de Blasio’s affordable housing initiative, is one of the longest-serving members of the mayor’s administration.

You’re a registered lobbyist in Albany. What are you going to be looking at as the session opens? It’s going to be an interesting time. It’s hard to predict. In the Senate, you have 63 members. Forty are Democrats, 23 Republicans. And of those, those are 15 new Democrats and two new Republicans. Several have never been in elected office before. So it’s really very hard to predict where they’re going. A Democrat from upstate isn’t necessarily going to be consistent with the same interests as a Democrat from Brooklyn or Queens. We’re certainly going to swing much more progressive. Much more unity we think, between the Assembly and the state Senate. That makes a lot of sense. You don’t have the Republican majority holding hostage a lot of legislation. And the governor has already indicated he’s looking forward to this swing to the left. So I think there has to be

some concern in the real estate market that we don’t go too far. Your job is partly to predict what’ll happen. Does it feel like there’s more uncertainty this session? Campaign rhetoric and actually what happens once you’re elected and serving is very different. The campaign rhetoric gives you a certain amount of knowledge that you can predict, but it’s not a true indicator. Because once you’re in there, you’re starting your committees, you go through the learning process with such a large number of people that are new to us in a lot of ways – it’ll take a learning curve on both sides. It’s very hard to predict. But there’s no doubt it’s going to be a more progressive legislative session than it has in the past.

“It just captured a moment. For not only the city and state, but also the nation, of a surprising power player’s rise,” Horton said. “The lighting is great. That’s the moment she clinched her victory, and it just really speaks to the energy that her campaign brought to that particular election.”

“It falls within the grand tradition of political cartooning in New York, going back to the days of Thomas Nast and Tammany Hall,” said Horton, praising the cover by his predecessor, former creative director Guillaume Federighi. “It’s certainly within our remit to allow the governor to look ridiculous at times.”

Winn rs & L sers of 2018 F

It was a historic year for women in NY politics – and a lousy year for many men.

OR MOST OF human history, men have been in charge. Some have been effective leaders, and others have proven to be utter disasters, but either way, men ran most of the world while women were forced to the sidelines. Of course, the traditional dominance of men in positions of power has been eroding, with breakthroughs like women winning the right to vote, and, over time, serving in increasingly influential roles – and in increasing numbers – within government. It hasn’t always been a smooth ride, of course, but it has generally been an upward trajectory – the most recent example being the record number of women who ran for and were elected to Congress this fall.

Indeed, as we set about identifying candidates for our annual Winners & Losers of the Year list, we quickly realized that the New York political figures who had enjoyed the most spectacular successes in 2018 were almost all women. At the same time, we had come up with even more men whose political careers had crashed and burned just as spectacularly. Before we knew it, we had filled out an impressive all-female list of political all-stars as well as a roster of male politicians who had suffered ignominious defeats in 2018. Agree? Disagree? Think we missed some winners or losers entirely? (Rep. Hakeem Jeffries as a winner? Shola Olatoye, Mark Peters or Michael Cohen as a loser?)

Z ALESSANDRA BIAGGI, RACHEL MAY, JESSICA RAMOS & JULIA SALAZAR

I

N A CLASSIC TALE of David and Goliath, these four state Senate insurgents took on the establishment and toppled giants. Biaggi, May and Ramos each challenged former Independent Democratic Conference members, who had officially rejoined the mainline fold in April – under pressure from Gov. Andrew Cuomo – and received the blessing of state Senate Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins. Similarly, Salazar decided to challenge a male incumbent who, though not a member of the IDC, received the conference’s support and had been attacked by progressives. Each woman ignored the long odds in order to voice dissatisfaction with the status quo. They were outraised, outspent and underestimated – none had ever held elected office before, and half had never worked in government at all. Nevertheless, all four – along with Zellnor Myrie, another newcomer who knocked out a former IDC member – persisted and capitalized on hard work and grassroots activism.

ERO TO HERO, just like that. Letitia James started the year as a simple country lawyer in the low-budget waiting room known as the New York City Public Advocate’s Office. She ended it as the incoming attorney general of the state of New York. The AG office opening up was a shock, but James deserves credit for laying the political groundwork that allowed her to jump into campaign mode long before she expected to. She had earned respect and made friends as a city councilwoman and public advocate, which paid off when she got everyone in the political world and their mother to endorse her right out of the gate. From there, nothing could stop her, even as some on the left cast doubt on her progressive credentials for buddying up to Cuomo and Big Real Estate. James and Barbara Underwood – the caretaker AG who’s returning to the role of solicitor general – have made it abundantly clear they’re looking for more wins against President Donald Trump.

NITA LOWEY

I

N A STATE filled with national political players, Rep. Nita Lowey, a Democrat who represents most of New York City’s northern suburbs, has long been overshadowed. She’s not a rising progressive heroine like Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, or a member of the party leadership like U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer or (soon) Rep. Hakeem Jeffries. But, starting next month, she’ll be someone everyone wants something from. With her party taking the majority, Lowey is in line to chair the powerful Appropriations Committee, which writes the bills that allocate funding to federal agencies. While the Democratic takeover has elevated several New Yorkers to chairmanships – Rep. Jerry Nadler is getting a lot of press for his plans as Judiciary chairman, Rep. Eliot Engel will run Foreign Affairs and Rep. Nydia Velazquez will chair Small Business – none is a bigger winner than Lowey, who will be on the front line of blocking Trump’s domestic spending cuts and bringing home the bacon.

LOSERS

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ

JOE CROWLEY

L

U

P UNTIL Joe Crowley was ousted from his seat in the 14th Congressional District, few outside of the taco and tequila bar Flats Fix knew the name Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Today, it’s a different story. Ocasio-Cortez not only defeated the veteran Crowley as a first-time candidate, but she also solidified her place as a de facto leader of the Democratic Socialists of America and a rising star in the left wing of the Democratic Party in general. A staunch supporter of “Medicare-for-all” and the abolishment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, Ocasio-Cortez is not exactly a stranger to controversy, but she seems to be made of Teflon. No accusation, whether it’s doubts about her working-class status or her knowledge of civics, can stick to her. And anyone who takes a shot at Ocasio-Cortez is likely to be vilified on her Twitter page, where she showcases a certain deftness with social media that only a millennial – or a certain inhabitant of the White House – could possess. Beware all ye who dare risk a Twitter beef with the congresswoman-to-be, AOC.

ANDREA STEWARTCOUSINS

G

OOD THINGS COME to she who waits. Patience has indeed paid off for state Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins, who was elevated to the Senate Democratic leadership following the implosion of its last majority nearly a decade ago. Since then, she has steadily and surely led her caucus back to power and will now end centuries of patriarchal dominance by making it three people – rather than three men – who are in the room making the decisions that matter in New York government. Stewart-Cousins also brings experiences to the table that add to her considerable political capital. She represents a Westchester County district that literally straddles the upstate-downstate divide, and she is immune to accusations that she is just another career politician, considering that she did not enter public service until her early 40s. Powerful men will likely want credit for whatever state government accomplishes in 2019, but everything depends on the most powerful woman in the state Capitol.

IKE A GREEK hero of legend, the longtime King of Queens seemed to succumb to his tragic flaw: hubris. When a no-name democratic socialist bartender stepped up to challenge the man widely considered a top contender for House speaker, the concept that Crowley could lose seemed unthinkable. Internal polls had him leading by over 30 points shortly before primary night. And although several debates were scheduled, Crowley only appeared at one, sending an ill-equipped surrogate to debate in his place one evening. Needless to say, even his challenger Ocasio-Cortez, now the talk of the town in Washington, reacted with shock when the returns indicated her comfortable victory. Crowley’s team has since said that the congressman did take the primary very seriously, but his campaign obviously came up short – so he can bid farewell to his political ambitions. Consolation prize, though: Crowley managed to hold on to his chairmanship of the Queens County Democratic Party, maintaining a small degree of his former power. THE POWER LIST

EMPTING AS IT is to make a Flanagan Fails Again pun, it’s simply inaccurate. The Republican state Senate leader had managed to keep his chamber in GOP control since he took over as majority leader in 2015, first weathering the 2016 election in this deep blue state, and then maintaining his grip – even as Democrats had a numeric majority and, later, as the Independent Democratic Conference rejoined the mainline Dems. Flanagan held on tight for years, blocking Democratic priorities that California passed long ago, but it couldn’t last. The blue wave crashed on Flanagan’s country club communities and it all finally slipped from his grasp. In the end, it wasn’t even close: The Democrats won more state Senate seats than even the most True Blue, pussy-hatted #Resist-er could have predicted, and now Andrea Stewart-Cousins will wield power that Flanagan could only dream of. Flanagan did keep his seat, and maintained leadership of the conference, shrunken as it is. Flanagan failed. For the first time.

Our Perspective You Can’t Call Yourself Pro-Worker or Pro-Union if you Ignore Amazon’s Behavior By Stuart Appelbaum, President, Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, RWDSU, UFCW

A

mazon has been well documented as one of the most anti-worker, antiunion companies in the U.S. and around the world. Amazon is a trillion-dollar company and is controlled by the wealthiest man on the planet; yet it consistently mistreats and dehumanizes its workers around the globe – the very women and men who have made the company successful. Amazon workers in Germany, Italy, and Spain have gone on strike, and we’ve seen massive demonstrations by Amazon workers in Great Britain over the way they are being mistreated. Amazon’s business model is based on receiving taxpayer subsidies, paying little or no taxes, and mistreating their employees. Amazon warehouse workers face outrageous work quotas and cruel working

conditions that have left many with illnesses and injuries. Contracted workers, such as those making “last mile” deliveries, have described inhumane working conditions and demands. These couriers say they cannot take bathroom breaks and often feel compelled to drive dangerously to satisfy the stringent demands of Amazon. In the United Kingdom alone, there have been 600 ambulance calls to the online retailer’s warehouses in the past three years, and, according to a study by the GMB union, roughly 80 percent of workers experience pain on the job. Gov. Cuomo was absolutely right when he said recently at a rally about Charter Communications: “What’s happening in this country is there’s more and more corporate

power and they’re trying to abuse workers. It’s happening all across the board. It’s happening all across the nation. But we’re saying it’s not going to happen in the state of New York.” The importance of Amazon and what it means for the future world of work transcends one company. These issues and more are examined and exposed in a new report by the RWDSU called “What’s Wrong With Amazon?,” which can be viewed online here: https://tinyurl.com/WhatsWrongWithAmazon. The report details the extent of Amazon’s detrimental effects on workers and communities, and shows why, in the words of Sharan Burrow, the newly re-elected head of the global labor movement, Amazon is the global labor movement’s number one target. Nobody can call themselves pro-worker or pro-union if they exempt or ignore Amazon’s behavior. If Amazon wants to be welcomed in New York, it needs to change the way it treats working women and men and their unions.

HE CONVICTIONS KEEP coming, one after another. Friends and associates are exposed as hopelessly corrupt. The executive points fingers elsewhere, insisting that he has nothing to do with any of the wrongdoing. No, we’re not talking about President Donald Trump. We’re talking about the friends and family of Gov. Andrew Cuomo! Joe Percoco, a longtime insider among the Cuomos, was famously described as almost another son to former Gov. Mario Cuomo, and more recently served as an appointee, ally and unrestrained id of the younger Cuomo. But all that bad karma came back to Percoco when was found guilty of bribery in March and ultimately sentenced to six years in prison. The other big scalp for federal prosecutors was Alain Kaloyeros, the former SUNY Polytechnic Institute founder and state economic development figure who was sentenced to three and half years for his own part in a multimillion-dollar bid-rigging scandal.

HE LAST TIME four renegade state senators tried to shake things up in Albany, they threw the state Senate into chaos. The so-called Four Amigos – Pedro Espada, Carl Kruger, Hiram Monserrate and Ruben Diaz Sr. – were about as qualified as the Three Amigos, and before long three of the four were behind bars. Yet following their lead was another four-person breakaway group, the Independent Democratic Conference, led by state Sen. Jeff Klein, who positioned himself as a policy-oriented reformer. When he allied with Republicans, he touted it as a way to pass progressive bills. When he kept Republicans in power, few voters noticed. But when Donald Trump became president, New Yorkers started paying attention – and partnering with Republicans suddenly became a tougher sell. In the end, neither his growing conference nor his legislative feats nor his fundraising prowess were enough to fend off an insurgency that knocked him – and most of his IDC colleagues – out of Albany.

OW THE MIGHTY have fallen! A year ago, then-state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was a darling of the Democratic Party, not only in New York but nationwide. He was a leader of the resistance to the Trump administration, giving the president hell on a wide range of fronts, including an investigation into the Trump foundation and numerous lawsuits before and after he became president. But it all came crashing down in May after a story in the New Yorker revealed credible allegations of domestic abuse. Schneiderman resigned within hours and it is hard to imagine a world where he would ever want to re-enter the public eye. The only way that history might ever look even a little kindly on Schneiderman will be the fact that his downfall ushered in not one but two female successors. Barbara Underwood and Tish James, thankfully, have their own ways of doing things.

There are many ways to measure power – a politician’s ability to shape and carry out policies, the size and importance of a constituency one represents, proximity to top officials, economic clout – and all of those criteria come into play, and more. We also assess power within various categories and within certain boundaries, which allows us to delve more deeply into areas that otherwise would not be fully explored.

New York City Council Speaker

17

How often do you talk with the mayor? It’s been a lot. It’s been cyclical. In the first six months, from January to June, we were meeting either once a week or once every two weeks in person, in his office on the other side of City Hall. The summer, it was a little slower here. We still met during the summer, but not as much after the budget was done. And the mayor calls me often. I call him if I think there’s a problem. I called him the night of the snowstorm, and I said this is like a disaster, like, ‘What the hell is going on?’ So he and I have a very civil, good, respectful working relationship with each other.

18

Is it ever friendly? Yeah, it’s friendly.

27

You ever talk Red Sox? He likes to talk about the Red Sox! I like the Red Sox. But one of the things that I appreciate now, towards the end of this year is that when I criticize, when I push back, when I take actions that potentially could make (the mayor’s office) uncomfortable, I don’t think they – at least not outwardly – seem that upset. I think they expect it. I think they expect that I’m going to be fair. That I’m going to speak out. And that I’m not going to do it in a sort of over-the-top, trying-to-scorepoints, dragging-them-throughthe-mud type of way. I try to do it in a straight-shooter, thoughtful way. When I can, I try to give them a heads up. That’s not always possible. I said how I felt about Joe Esposito. I didn’t talk to the mayor about it. I just thought it was the right thing to do.

5O OVER 50 Q&A

DENNIS WALCOTT Queens Library President and CEO Are libraries bastions of liberalism, with immigration assistance and kids’ programs like “Drag Queens Story Hour”? Libraries are the last true democratic institutions in the city. Any individual can walk through their front door and not have any type of ID asked about them, who they are, their background, whether it’s sexually, racially, based on religion or their immigrant status. Anyone can walk into any of our libraries and get quality services and what they’re looking for. When somebody relocates to this country, a lot of times the first place they go is a library, based on word of mouth from somebody who received a service.

What’s the best book you’ve read this year? For me, “Indianapolis” (by Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic). The World War II ship that delivered the A-bomb. I was gripped the entire time I read that. You’re a good librarian. It’s fascinating, because I’ve read a lot of interesting books. While I have not gotten to it, because it’s on a lengthy reserve, the Michelle

Amazon building a new office in Long Island City could change Queens. Is this an opportunity for the library, or are you worried about the impact? I think it’s an opportunity not just for the Queens Library, but for Queens and the city overall. And I know there’s a lot of work to be done. And a lot of meetings to be held, and a process that needs to be put in place, but I think it’s a golden opportunity for the borough, and more importantly, for the people of the borough. And people at all levels of income and opportunity. We have a tech lab in Queensbridge Houses, so there’s a connection there. And then we have a universal pre-K site in Ravenswood as well. So we have a relationship with the (New York City) Housing Authority and Amazon. (Those clients) are people who will definitely, I think, benefit of the intersection with Amazon. We met with (Amazon) probably around three weeks ago now and we met with seven of their VPs and team members and had a productive meeting. You were schools chancellor under New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Would you vote for him if he ran for president? I am a big believer in Michael Bloomberg. I think Michael Bloomberg has done a tremendous job both as a mayor and a businessman. But for me, how I view the man is as a philanthropist as well. (Walcott sits on the board of directors at Bloomberg Philanthropies.) If one does a deep dive on his philanthropic efforts, one will be extremely impressed. I am a very big believer in Mike Bloomberg, and I believe in not just the man, but I believe in his continuous commitment to making the world a better place.

Bill Bratton, the former New York City Police Department commissioner, says his job requires exceptional precision in the diagnosis and treatment of problems. “Like doctors, we try to do no harm – or minimal harm – to our patient while dealing with the illnesses,” he says.

Clockwise from top left: Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, former New York City Mayor David Dinkins, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and former New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña

“I think everything I accomplished, I accomplished through having good teachers and good educational experiences,” says Carmen Fariña, the former New York City schools chancellor. While she has retired, however, she says, “An educator never really goes away.”

Schumer’s conference failed to win a majority in the U.S. Senate, but he was still re-elected by Democrats as minority leader.

Underwood, who replaced Eric Schneiderman on an interim basis, will go back to being solicitor general under state Attorney General-elect Letitia James.

and the station became so crowded. So I’ve been focusing on that and on affordable housing, which ties into the Amazon question as well. The rent laws and affordable housing are big, big issues that will have a huge impact on people’s lives when we improve them.

11

You mentioned that the Amazon project shows that legislation is needed to curb the use of nondisclosure agreements. Can you tell me more about that? One of the problems that were revealed through this terrible process was that Amazon required the bidders to sign secrecy agreements. I don’t think there’s any reason for that to be a process that our government participates in and I’m going to propose that we ban that in the future.

16

What are you particularly proud of accomplishing this year? The fact that we were able to get not only a Senate majority, but a substantial one that was not only the result of the blue wave that hit the country – it was the culmination of years of effort. It is going to be transformational for this state and we’re anxious to show in 2019 that things have really changed and it’s not just more of the same. So how does Sen. Gianaris unwind? I’d say dinner and a movie and bike riding for exercising. And some pretty good Cheetos? These are regular Cheetos puffs, but I had one hour of free time between my last meeting and my next event so it’s the best I could do today unfortunately.

Q&A

LATRICE MONIQUE WALKER Assemblywoman

CELESTE SLOMAN

You’re running for New York City public advocate. How will you stand out in the race? There are four components to the office that I see. The public advocate’s role is to advocate, agitate, legislate and litigate. The mayor wanted to open up a juvenile detention facility within the community that I live in and represent. At the same time, he proposed closing a high school. We advocated in Albany and also agitated by rallying the support of the community to prevent the closure of the school and the opening of the juvenile detention facility. You grew up in New York City public housing. What do you make of the current situation? Everyone is enraged and they want to do something about it. The sad part is that so many residents have been allowed to languish for so many years. This situation could have been avoided had the clarion call been listened to a lot sooner. How will you relax over the holidays? I am going to have a birthday party for (my daughter). We are going to eat lots of ice cream and cake and play a lot with her dolls.

ZACHARY BERNSTEIN Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP Kate Boicourt, director of resilience for the Waterfront Alliance, is inspired by Rachel Carson, the American scientist who advocated for a better relationship between people and nature: “She became incredibly influential in the ’20s and ’30s at a time when women weren’t that publicly respected.”

“Our work ... puts us in front of so many fascinating people who are really deeply committed to ensuring a great future for the city,” says Daniel White, a senior executive at Geto & de Milly. “It means a lot to me to have close, trusted working relationships with civic leaders.”

“I think that we’re heading in the right direction,” says Wendy Garcia, the chief diversity officer in the New York City Comptroller’s Office, comparing the work of rooting out racism and sexism to moving a mountain. “Am I satisfied? Absolutely not.”

SARAH BERLENBACH Cherrydale Strategies Leslie Dubeck, who is general counsel in the New York State Attorney General’s Office, is a generalist who loves the challenge and variety of her cases. “Sometimes criminal law, sometimes government ethics, civil disputes,” she says. “It’s problem-solving in a variety of contexts.”

The City Council won’t have much of a say on the new Amazon office. How are you feeling about it? I know that this Amazon deal promises thousands of good-paying jobs, and it has great potential. But the reality is that the state and the mayor’s office completely circumvented the democratic process that was created for this very purpose, which is to review the use of city-owned land. It’s disheartening, to say the least. The de Blasio administration just adjusted plans to build a jail in lower Manhattan. Is there any chance that plan could get changed? My fingers are crossed. I hope that the project can be changed. I had conversations with the administration, and I know that they’re still moving forward with that Bronx location. I have the Barge in my district (The Vernon C. Bain Center, a city jail on a barge). And I also have the Horizon Detention Center (a city jail for juveniles). I’ve been aggressive reaching out to the mayor saying the Barge is an annex of Rikers. And I just feel that if he’s really serious about shutting down Rikers, he can start with the Barge. Like today.

Schwartz is an appointee of Gov. Andrew Cuomo on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board. When the MTA recently approved its 2019 budget – despite the need for new revenues and cost-cutting, Schwartz said, “We are going to be a lot more aggressive and assertive and proactive next year.”

The Fox News host reportedly still owes hundreds of thousands of dollars from her shortlived attempt to knock out then-U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton – but she’s also reportedly making hundreds of thousands of dollars speaking to Republican groups. While Democrats will have single-party control in Albany next year, GOP consultant Bill O’Reilly sees a silver lining: “You can speak freely about things when you don’t have to guard members. There’s something liberating about that that could plant seeds for a new Republican Party in New York.” O’Shaughnessy, who has known the Cuomos for decades, said former Gov. Mario Cuomo casts a shadow over Gov. Andrew Cuomo: “When you have a father that is such a dazzlingly brilliant intellectual, that alone – it’s hard to live up to that.”

With Democrats winning the House, Lowey will chair the Appropriations Committee, influencing how federal dollars are spent.

Q&A

BETTY ROSA State Board of Regents Chancellor The Board of Regents decided to extend the moratorium on teacher evaluations for another year, so in your opinion, what still needs to get done? I’m trying to engage in various conversations around the issue of, how do we develop an evaluation, both for teachers and principals, that really takes into account student success?

CityAndStateNY.com

And what does that mean and what are the ways that we capture the kinds of things that we want to have in an evaluation? Both from an observational perspective as well as from student performance. But at the same time I think the key point recently has been making sure that teachers’ voices are part of this conversation, principals’ voices, superintendents and other stakeholders, in terms of, what does this look like from a programmatic perspective? So when we hit September of this year, we knew at that point that we had an expiration date coming up, and we took stock and said, “Are we going to be ready at that point?” And the position was, you know what, let’s extend it so that we know that we have a little bit more time to get this right. For you, going into 2019, what do you think is the biggest issue facing New York schools or the biggest priority that you want to tackle in the new year? Probably equity. Equity and I would say, making sure that we create a strong foundation in terms of early learning. Moving through that and making sure that once you build that, you create that foundation, that you build the stepping stones to ensure that children are getting the kind of education experience that builds on that early learning experience. For me, the priority of creating a continuum of success and student achievement, student learning, is paramount. The umbrella of equity for me is making sure that we have the resources and the fundings and the opportunity and the access for all students.

The Western New York senator challenged state Sen. John Flanagan to be minority leader after major GOP electoral losses, but Flanagan held on to his post. She declined to sit on the legislative pay commission this year, citing separation of powers. It turns out she avoided controversy after the committee tied future pay raises to ethics reforms.

Lago’s commission was just sued by the New York City Council, which is furious over the city approving four new skyscrapers on the Lower East Side without its input.

“We mounted a very spirited effort to protect the self-storage industry from being essentially eliminated from doing business in many, many parts of the city. There was a move to prevent self-storage companies from building in any manufacturing zone. That became narrowed to industrial business zones. And then towards the end of the year, through a lot of grass-roots advocacy and a pretty strong coalition of businesses, chambers of commerce and others who saw the value in self-storage and what they provide as far as affordable warehousing, we were able to carve out several districts from the restrictions and we were able to make the zoning text a lot more bearable.” – MICHAEL WOLOZ, PARTNER

KEVIN PARKER It almost seemed like the state senator had put his history of anger issues behind him. But then a Republican staffer called him out on Twitter for parking placard abuse, and Parker’s dam broke, responding: “Kill yourself!” Even other Democrats swooped in to condemn his remark. So Parker apologized – before making things worse by arguing that she deserved it because of her political beliefs. Now he’s lost respect – and his position on Jumaane Williams’ public advocate campaign team.

No more tax to help opioid victims, after the pharmaceutical bigwig won his suit. She’s the first female Assembly majority leader, but alas, not a (wo)man in the room. The Google CFO certainly didn’t demand billions in tax breaks to expand in NYC.

This sweet old assemblywoman is actually a verbally abusive boss, a lawsuit says.

ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE; STATE SENATE

LOSERS BARBARA UNDERWOOD Lame ducks take note: THIS is what you do with your last weeks in office. New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood continued her hot streak last week, scoring a huge settlement from Charter Communications (formerly Time Warner Cable) and single-handedly forcing the Donald J. Trump Foundation to dissolve. Though her biggest victory may be becoming the subject of a Trump Twitter rant – a badge of honor for any of the president’s defiers.

WINNERS

They’ve paid their dues in the public sector, and now it’s time for New York City Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen and New York state Department of Financial Services Superintendent Maria Vullo to retreat back to the private sector and start raking in the big bucks. With the stock market tanking you can’t blame them – those Christmas gifts aren’t going to pay for themselves. For those still stuck in government, we’ve got your weekly allotment of candy and coal.
