The Cuomo Administration’s Mandate Relief Roadshow


Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide is getting the band together and hitting the road, but its schedule still needs some tweaking.

Cuomo’s mandate relief council — led by Secretary to the Governor Larry Schwartz, pictured — will hit all corners of the state to hold hearings on ways to ease state mandated costs on local governments, a point of contention among local officials.

But while Cuomo’s office released a framework itinerary today, it’s far from final or specific. The schedule lists broad regions — such as the Hudson Valley and Western New York — but doesn’t have specific times or locations.

Here’s the basic schedule, with specifics to be “announced announced closer to the date of the actual meeting,” according to a news release. The hearings will be streamed live here.

Feb. 10 – Long Island
Feb. 23 – Central NY
Feb. 24 – Mohawk Valley
Feb. 27 – Hudson Valley
Feb. 28 – Capital Region
Mar. 2 – North Country East
Mar. 8 – North Country West
Mar. 9 – Southern Tier
Mar. 16 – Western NY
Mar. 16 – Finger Lakes

  2. This news of “The Secretary” , It’s like the Story of a Barber who was hired by a King; and used to Shave the King every morning before the went to The Court!

    One day!….the King woke up late. And, had was supposedly had an Audience with some Dignitaries from a Foreign Country!… Since it was already morning and no time for Shave! The (Secretary) of The King what was actually called ‘Primé Minister’ suggested that while the King gets ready; the Barber can go to The Court with the King and Shave him on the Throne!….

    And, that’s what happened! Everyone of The King Staff arrived and so did the King while getting ready for The Dignitaries Arrivals; the King sat on The Throne and told the Barber….to come up and Shave as he gets a fee thing done!….The Barber climes the Podium in The Court and Started to lather the Shaving Creek with his Brush on Kings Face with hot water!….

    In between the King kept busy giving orders and getting ready for his expected Guests to arrive!

    By this time, the Barber had finished applying the Shaving Cream on The King’s Face and picked up the Blade to start the Shaving!…. And, requested the King to Sit still!

    And, the King Complied! The Barber shaved the Sideburns of The King!…and reached the Area on The King’s neck…. As, soon as The Barber put the Blade on The Kings Neck! ( that the same barber use to Shave the King almost for many many years; but this was the first time he was doing it at the Throne)…..

    So, as soon as he put the Blade on The Kings throat; the Same Barber (who jade been saving the King for a long time) threatened to cut the King’s Throat …and already he had the Blade very close ad he was shaving the King; And, everyone knew that the Barber was certainly not bluffing ! He meant it!….
    The Barber commanded that he want the King to Marry his Daughter ! The Princess.

    Now, that was the only Sibling that The Ling had and The Princess would become the Future Queen! And, practically if the King agree to Marrying his only Daughter with the Barber and save his life!
    or refuses and get his throat cut and die! It was a very tough and close call!

    The Situation had become very tense … The Palace. It was all chaotic and The Guests had also arrived! ……The Kings Army commanders were all gathered around the Throne and The situation was so close and sensitive that no solutions were obvious….Either, the King! Accepts the Barber Demand or else, get his throat cut and bleed to death! ….

    Suddendly, the Prime Minister ( who in designation is the Top Aidé of The King or his Secretary)…..agrees and announces that ” Ok! The King will Marry The Princesse with the Barber!”……..
    Everyone is shocked! And, there is silence…….And, the Prime Minister continuing his announcement says …..” Yes! The King will give his Daughter in Marriage to The Barber; if he comes down where the Prime Minister was standing a few steps away from the Throne in The Courts!..

    The Barber was in heat and agreed to walk-up and make that demand! And, stromed
    Down towards the King and asap, he reached near him he started shaking and instead started apologizing and crying out of fear and asking for forgiving …..Everyone was shocked! And, this time even more than the episode began and now this!…….

    The King accepted the Barber’s Apology and and let him go.!…..

    It was already afternoon! And, everyone was exhausted by the episodes and cancelled the appointments and The Guests that had arrived were settled in The Guest House of The Kingdom!

    Later, the evening A Reception was arranged for The arrived Dignitaries and everyone sat for Dinner! Due to The Barber Ordeal – that was still so fresh in three minds; no one talked much! …..

    While eating, everyone was curiously interested! How did the Prime Minister resolved the Situation
    ! And, how did that this resolved so smoothly and saving the King from the Ordeal!

    So finally, the KING asked!. .his Secretary…. How did he knew that The Barber would accept and walk up tps the Prime Minister and instead started begging in less than 20 seconds! Everyone wanted to find out how! This happened…

    The Primé Minister smiled and said: ” well! The Barber had been an employée of The King for many years, saving the King almost every morning in the King’s Private Quarters!…..and this type of incident never occurred. On The Contrary….the Barber had been one of The best employee of The Palace!
    But, what happened was that when The Barber went up the Throne – The entire wealth of The King is under the Throne and when The Barber stood on top of it the heat of three wealth made home foot a lot! And. He became so lost not in posssing three wealth; bit even standing so close to it!

    And, threatened to kill the King! Now! This was the conscience of character!….

    Here, the People of The State of New York: elected the Governor not his Secretary to represent them! The Secretary did not take the Oath of Office …..why is he going around and why not the Governor himself?
