INSIDE THE PAPERS
New York Times
Michael Barbaro reports that Mayor Bloomberg was telling guests at a party that while he thinks Mitt Romney would probably run the country better than President Obama, he won’t be making any endorsement in the presidential race.
Foderaro & Hu write about the resignation of Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe.
Thomas Kaplan notes: “Facing resistance from the Republican-controlled Senate, a proposal by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana in public view appeared near defeat on Monday as lawmakers approached the end of this year’s legislative session.”
Josh Eligon profiles Congressional candidate Adriano Espaillat.
Columnist Michael Powell previews next week’s Congressional primaries.
New York Post
Sally Goldenberg reports: “Rep. Charles Rangel yesterday picked up a key labor endorsement as he approached the homestretch in the fight of his political life. The New York State AFL-CIO, a federation of more than 3,000 local unions, threw its weight behind the old Harlem war horse going into next Tuesday’s Democratic primary.”
Erik Kriss reports: “State lawmakers could head home for the summer with no agreement to limit disclosure of teacher evaluations, Gov. Cuomo said yesterday. Talks stalled over the weekend and yesterday, which Cuomo had set as his deadline for signing off on a disclosure bill.”
Yoav Gonen writes: “The city sent out pink slip-like notices to more than 3,500 teachers and other staffers at 24 public schools that are slated to close and immediately reopen at the end of the month. All employees at the 24 struggling schools are being forced to reapply for their jobs under a first-of-its-kind school-urnaround plan — although the schools are required to hire back only half of them.”
New York Daily News
Durkin & Monahan report: “Mayor Bloomberg lashed out at the teachers union Monday, accusing it of protecting teachers who ‘admit to preying on kids.’ Bloomberg also blasted United Federation of Teachers President Michael Mulgrew’s request for a City Council hearing on the Education Department’s hiring practices, calling it a ‘a new height of irresponsibility.’ “
Wall Street Journal
Joseph De Avila notes: “A proposal to build a power line underneath portions of the Hudson River and Lake Champlain to deliver electricity to New York City has created an unusual alliance: the Sierra Club, energy companies and a bipartisan group of lawmakers. They have emerged as a powerful opposing force to the Champlain Hudson Power Express, a $2 billion, 333-mile power line that would connect the city to power generated by Canadian wind farms and hydroelectric dams.”
