The Runaround: Mike and George Miss Each Other

Posted by azi on February 15, 2006

5-9 a.m. Milano senior fellow Sharon Lerner starts the first of two reports on WNYC about affordable health care and childcare.

10 a.m. Tom Suozzi talks joins a Brookings Institute discussion in D.C. about First Suburbs.

10:30 a.m. Yvette Clarke and others storm the City Hall steps to condemn “bigoted” remarks made on Hot 97. Then, in a totally unrelated matter, calls for an investigation into payola schemes at radio stations.

11 a.m. In a case of sheer coincidence, Mike Bloomberg will make an announcement at a Battery Park restaurant at the exact same time George Pataki makes an announcement on Governor’s Island.   In case you forgot, Mike is fighting with Republicans in Albany, and Pataki is hoping people forget he is a Republican in Albany.

Also at 11 a.m. Bill Thompson (in a pre-mayoral move?) calls for property tax rebates for seniors.

11:30-12:45 Immigrants rights advocates march to City Hall. Wonder if Mike will be back by then?

4 p.m. Greg Meeks and others launch the Middle East Economic Partnership Caucus.
