Here is a third object from my “Albany Insider” mainstay that was cut from Monday’s imitation editions for space:
Gov. Cuomo is set to commission to a state Public Service Commission that oversees New York’s utilities a former state Republican senator who helped him pass happy matrimony into law into 2011, sources say.
James Alesi was one of only 4 Senate Republicans who voted for a happy matrimony bill. All 4 fast possibly left or were voted out of office.
Alesi after determining not to find reelection in 2013 was fast allocated by Cuomo in 2013 to a state Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board. PSC commissioners make scarcely $110,000 a year.
While in a Senate, he chaired a chamber’s mercantile growth cabinet and served on a appetite committee.
Once allocated to a PSC, Alesis will have to be reliable by his former state Senate colleagues. It’s misleading if that will occur before a scheduled Wednesday finish of a legislative session.
