Contributors to NY Gov Win $82.8M in State Contracts after Having None

Capital New York 12/9: “For Cuomo, it was one of the dozens of events that helped him raise a record $46.9 million for his re-election. But for members of the Capital Region Economic Development Council like Albany Medical Center C.E.O. James Barba and realtor Bob Blackman, then a member of nfrastructure’s board, the soiree marked the occasion of their first political contributions to the governor.

“The event came several months before Cuomo announced the council had won $82.8 million, in part for projects around the eight-county region—a reversal after two years of being snubbed in the state’s competitive funding process.”
