In a scrum with reporters in Albany today, Governor Andrew Cuomo explained how much involvement his appointees to the Port Authority — which recently proposed massive toll hikes — have had so far.
“We’ve had two appointees who were put on, who attended one meeting,” Cuomo said.
The comment comes after a couple of news stories — from the New York Times and the Bergen Record — reported Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie were aware that the Port Authority would propose toll hikes in advance of their announcement last week.
At the time, both governors denounced the proposals and denied any knowledge the massive fare increases would be proposed.
Some, like New York Post State Editor Fred Dicker, have noted that proposing a massive toll hike, and having it swatted down to a less alarming increase, is a comment “orchestrated dance” with this agency and politicians.
