Cocktail’s with Cuomo



When Governor Cuomo gave his 2017 Regional State of the State address in January he announced the approval of the largest offshore wind farm in the nation. He assured the residents of Eastern Long Island that turbines would not be visible from the beach,they will be 30 miles southeast of Montauk. “Not even Superman standing on Montauk Point could see these wind farms,” he announced.  


Our politically ambitious governor has recently been indulging in big-money fundraising orgies. This Saturday he will be in the Hamptons for his second fundraiser in a week, hosted by another one of his hedge fund managing friends. This most recent event is called “Sunset Cocktails” and costs $50,000 per person to sit at his table..
Cuomo assured his monied supporters in the Hamptons that their views will not be marred by wind turbines, but what about the rest of us who can’t afford $50,000 for cocktails with Cuomo? For the rest of us we have to fight to keep turbines at bay. Cuomo’s renewable energy policies shouldn’t be for sale to the highest bidders, particularly when it is impossible for us in upstate to compete with Cuomo’s monied elite from downstate.

On the other hand, how about a candidate for governor in 2018 who believes public policy shouldn’t be for sale - that would be refreshing.
