INSIDE THE PAPERS

The New York Times

Thomas Kaplan reports: “With two weeks remaining before Election Day, advocates for creating a system of public financing for state elections are preparing to funnel at least $600,000 into two State Senate races in an effort to make money in politics a more prominent campaign issue.”

New York Post

Carl Campanile writes: “Gov. Cuomo has a prescription to make Medicaid recipients healthier — he’ll pay them to show up for doctor’s appointments. The Cuomo administration is launching an experimental ‘incentive’ program that will use $2 million in taxpayer funding next year to provide Medicaid recipients up to $250 in cash bonuses to take better care of themselves — by getting regular medical checkups, properly filling their prescriptions and better monitoring their blood pressure and weight.”

New York Daily News

Greg B. Smith reports: “Four years after hundreds of thousands in taxpayer dollars were set aside for security cameras, the city Housing Authority has finally come through for residents of the crime-plagued Amsterdam Houses. On Monday, NYCHA Chairman John Rhea will announce that the agency has completed installation of 15 new cameras there — the first of 85 NYCHA developments targeted for cameras after a Daily News report about long delays in the program.”

Reuven Blau notes: “The NYPD is spending thousands to recruit out-of-town candidates — and then is hiring the non-New Yorkers at nearly double the rate of qualified local hopefuls, a Daily News analysis shows.”

Ken Lovett writes: “Eliot Spitzer dismissed a 2016 White House run by Gov. Cuomo — saying he hopes Hillary Clinton runs instead. In his first appearance in Albany since resigning in disgrace in 2008 in a prostitution scandal, Spitzer declined to talk about Cuomo’s possible campaign.”

Lovett also notes: “Assemblyman Keith Wright, the co-chairman of the state Democratic Party, owes the city $224,410 in fines for illegally hanging campaign posters on city property. The city hit two of Wright’s campaign committees with a combined 760 violations dating back at least six years, officials said.”

Until tomorrow.
