Governor Cuomo Shows Dyster the Albany Woodshed

October 28, 2014

The Niagara Falls Reporter has learned that Mayor Paul Dyster met briefly with Gov. Cuomo in Buffalo following last Wednesday’s gubernatorial debate. The governor had summoned the mayor the previous day.

They met for about 10 minutes and it wasn't pretty, sources say.

We are told that Cuomo expressed his displeasure with what he is seeing and hearing regarding the political goings-on in Dyster’s hometown.

It seems that the state’s top Democrat is upset with the trajectory of the Isaiah 61 program, going so far to say that the city has imprudently, if not improperly, administered the program. The governor wants the Isaiah 61 situation rehabilitated, no pun intended.

Gov. Cuomo expressed concerns with the ongoing complaints against the city police department as recorded through the State Attorney General, as well as complaints lodged against Dyster’s city hall regarding hiring, firing and EEO practices and procedures.

And the governor seems mystified – aren’t we all – by the fact that Dyster, after receiving a casino cash windfall of $89 million in June 2013, has driven the city budget into the deficit ditch once again.

Cuomo, in short, is very unhappy with Mayor Dyster.

We understand that the mayor called a meeting of his “top department heads” the day after the governor’s dressing down to develop a strategy to set things right with Cuomo.

Will Dyster’s head roll in the 2015 election, or will Dyster roll the heads of some of his “best and brightest” before the close of 2014 in an effort to keep his political career alive?

Stay tuned.
