    Monday Dec 22 | Albany Times Union

    Former Gov. and current state Democratic Chairman David Paterson was just on CNN where he had some words of advice for NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio - that he needs to develop a personal relationship with the city police union president Pat Lynch, who has blasted the mayor for his handling of the Eric Garner protests, which police suggest led to the weekend's ambushing of two city cops. Paterson said his outreach to Lynch kept the governor and union head talking even when Paterson signed a bill that police had opposed, which curtailed the data that could be kept after stop and frisk arrests.

Andrew Cuomo's decision today to ban hydraulic fracturing-with Mr. Cox casting the Democrats as a troupe of business-hating eco-fanatics, and Mr. Paterson slamming Mr. Cox as a greedy energy tycoon. After years of indecision and heavy lobbying by both environmental groups and energy interests, Mr. Cuomo announced today that a state study had determined the practice of using a pressurized mixture of water and solvents to release underground gas reserves-also known as fracking-was unsafe and would not be allowed in New York State.
