New York Post
Sally Goldnberg reports: “The city Campaign Finance Board sided with Mayor Bloomberg yesterday in a case against his 2009 campaign that ended with a political operative going to jail.The board ruled 3-1 against a complaint that said Bloomberg should have disclosed a $1.2 million donation to the state Independence Party to help him with an Election Day poll-watching operation.”
David Seifman notes: “Big Apple voters have deflated Alec Baldwin’s fantasy of running for mayor. A new NY1-Marist College poll found 66 percent would prefer that Baldwin (below) stick to acting and stay out of the 2013 City Hall race. Eighteen percent urged him to jump in, while 16 percent were unsure.”
New York Daily News
Erin Durkin reports: “City Controller John Liu wants the city to fix a program that goes easy on big companies when their workers rack up parking tickets but has recently been exploited by many businesses. The program allows companies to pay steeply discounted fines if they agree not to contest the tickets and to settle the bargain balances within 15 days of a citation being issued.”
