Cuomo's Convention Center Calendar Caper
The Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo recently exercised his imperial prerogative to change the calendar of the state-owned Jacob Javits Convention Center. Newsday's Dan Janison reports that Cuomo in Albany changed the date of the annual New York boat show to January. http://www.newsday.com/columnists/dan-janison/javits-center-nyc-s-boat-show-make-political-waves-1.6119695 Considered a more desirable by the boat selling industry the change upset other trade shows that were bumped.
Quite aside from the question of why our would-be emperor in Albany isbusying himself with event calendars, let us ask the question never asked. Why should the state government or municipal governments be in the convention center business? If it is desirable, let it be run by private enterprise.
This Libertarian says "Separate convention centers and state. Sell the Javits Center."
