Silver Weighs in on Stadium

Sheldon Silver, Assembly Speaker and member of the Public Authorities Control Board, sounds like he's leaning against Mayor Bloomberg's $2 billion dollar West Side land/stadium give-away.


Silver, speaking on WFAN yesterday, said he wasn't sure whether the MTA got a fair price for the West Side land or if the stadium would cause traffic nightmares to an already grid-locked area of the city near the Lincoln Tunnel. He also said he thought most New Yorkers were against the deal, putting Mayor Bloomberg at odds with the will of the people.

Of course, Mayor Moneybags thinks he is the will of the people. Unfortunately for Bloomberg and luckily for satdium opponents, Silver isn't so convinced of that. And since Silver has a vote as a member of the Public Authorties Control Board, Bloomberg has his work cut out for him.

I hope.

Oh, and still nothing on the billions owed to the city's public school children by the state
