POLITICO New York Playbook, presented by Nuclear Matters: DE BLASIO's elite spreadsheet -- Poll shows CORRUPTION concern -- Weekend violence

05/31/2016 08:37 AM EDT

By Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, Jimmy Vielkind in Albany, and Mike Allen in D.C., with Daniel Lippman

DE BLASIO'S SPREADSHEET -- 'Confidential notes' feature business ties -- Daily News Jennifer Fermino and Greg Smith: "When Mayor de Blasio began handing out prestigious appointments to obscure boards and committees in his first months in City Hall, he turned to a system of cash for cachet. His team assembled an elite spreadsheet of major campaign donors, powerful lobbyists and celebrities as candidates for the coveted slots doled out by de Blasio.

"This internal spreadsheet - obtained by the Daily News - reveals a blatant and highly choreographed effort to reward donors and New York power players with high-profile VIP appointments. The 2014 list even goes so far as to suggest that de Blasio appoint lobbyists who were and are actively lobbying his administration on behalf of their wealthy clients.

"At least 14 of the mayor's top 'bundlers' who used a legal loophole to collect big bucks far in excess of donation restrictions made the list. So did four early donors to de Blasio's now-defunct lobbying group, the Campaign for One New York. 'Confidential notes' on the list reveal the candidate's business ties, but do not highlight actual qualifications for specific appointments. They do, however, reference support for the mayor, sometimes in financial terms. ... Kadushin, a spokesman for the mayor, declined to answer numerous questions about specific appointments and questions of conflict of interest raised by the list. ... All told the elite list includes 97 names. It's not clear how many were offered positions, but at least 43 accepted at least one appointment. Several got more than one."

Poll: Voters see corruption as most important issue -- POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: Sixty percent of New Yorkers say Gov. Andrew Cuomo is an ethical public official, according to a Siena Research Institute poll released this morning, as voters continue to clamor for some kind of action on anti-corruption legislation in the final days of this year's legislative session. The poll found that Cuomo, a Democrat whose administration was subpoenaed last month, has a job approval rating that is still under water (42-58) and a 54 favorability rating - relatively unchanged since last month. At this point, 42 percent of voters surveyed are prepared to re-election him.

While corruption prosecutors have previously targeted top legislators, recent subpoenas by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara have landed on state agencies and authorities controlled by Cuomo. Still, voters think it is worse in the legislative branch. ... Another major political figure beset by investigations - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio - sunk to his worst favorability rating ever in a Siena Poll: Forty-eight percent of voters view him unfavorably, compared to 34 percent who have a favorable view. SIENA'S CROSS TABS:

** A Message from Nuclear Matters: Providing 61 percent of the state's carbon-free electricity, New York's nuclear energy plants are a necessary and valuable part of the state's energy mix, and deserve the support of state lawmakers for their role in providing New York with reliable electricity while protecting the environment.

WEEKEND VIOLENCE -- Teen killed, 13 hurt during spree of holiday weekend gunfire in New York City -- Daily News: "A teen was killed and 13 people were hurt, two critically, in a spate of holiday weekend gunfire across the five boroughs. The mayhem began at 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the Bronx, when three men were shot and wounded in Van Cortlandt Park, near Broadway and W. 242nd St., as the Lambda Upsilon Lambda fraternity hosted a cookout nearby. Witnesses told cops they saw people arguing and shoving before the shots rang out. Police said a fraternity member saw two groups shoving and arguing in the distance.

"A half hour later, in Queens, a motorcyclist opened fire on an SUV on the Long Island Expressway in Maspeth, shooting his ex-girlfriend's new flame in the arm twice, police said, while she and her young son were inside the vehicle. The violence continued when, just before 1:30 a.m. Sunday, the NYPD's ShotSpotter system brought police to Crotona Ave. near E. 187th St. in Belmont. Officers found Brandon Rivera, 19, blasted in the chest and shoulder. Emergency workers rushed the teen to St. Barnabas Hospital, but he could not be saved, officials said. Cops recovered a gun at the scene, but the shooter remained at large.

NYP's director of communications @JDonald:

-- "crime this weekend nearly identical to last two Memorial Day weekends" and

-- "we are down 91 shootings and 16 homicides year to date. If that's not progress I don't know what is."

IN THE BAG -- Parks head denies trash bags tied to de Blasio probe smelled bad -- Post's Rich Calder: " The city's parks commissioner, who was partly responsible for a federal probe by giving a no-bid trash-bag contract to one of Mayor de Blasio's top fund-raisers, says he signed off on the deal unaware the liners failed the smell test years earlier.

"In his first interview about his agency's controversial purchase of Mint X rat-repellent trash bags, Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver told The Post he had no idea when giving a $15,000 contract to JAD Corp. of America in spring 2015 that the city Housing Authority had canned the liners in January 2012 after its workers complained their pungent smell was making them nauseous. Silver also admitted the nontoxic liners have produced "mixed results" with his workforce, adding, "Some like the bags, but others don't" because of the smell. He insisted the mayor "absolutely never" pressured him into awarding the no-bid contract to satisfy JAD owner Joseph Dussich, who donated $100,000 to the Campaign for One New York, the nonprofit formed by de Blasio to help promote his progressive agenda.

STATE PROBING CO BOMBING - Post-Standard's Catie O'Toole: "Cuomo is calling for a "full investigation" to find those responsible for a suspicious package that exploded and severely injured a state corrections officer at his home Sunday in Oneida County. The package was placed near the 52-year-old corrections officer's mailbox on Old Floyd Road in the town of Floyd, Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol told WKTV News. It exploded shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday. The corrections officer suffered burns to his body when he opened the suspicious package and it exploded, according to the governor's news release. He was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica, then transferred to Upstate University Hospital, where he was in stable condition, WKTV reported. 'The state of New York has no tolerance for any violence of this sort,' Cuomo wrote in the release, 'and I have ordered a full investigation to find those responsible for this horrific incident.' "

-- The governor visited the guard in the hospital Monday.

FALL CAMPAIGN - "Shady accounting underpins Trump's wealth: The GOP nominee is rich. But how rich depends on odd accounting and subjective criteria," by Morning Money's Ben White in New York: "Trump claims a net worth of more than $10 billion and income of $557 million. But he appears to get there only by over-valuing properties and ignoring his expenses. ... Some financial analysts said this, and a very low tax rate, is why Trump won't release his tax returns. ... And he is selling assets and increasing debt in ways that suggest a man scrambling for ready cash. ...

"The Clinton campaign wants to portray Trump's business empire as a Potemkin Village, showy on the surface with little underneath. ... Democrats have leading forensic accountants poring over all of Trump's public records and disclosures with a plan to release whatever they find to support this narrative as the campaign shifts into general election mode this summer and fall."

--WashPost 2-col. lead, "Gray areas for a mogul president: TRUMP BUSINESS EMPIRE SPANS GLOBE - Stalled hotel highlights potential conflicts if he wins," by Kevin Sullivan in Baku, Azerbaijan: "Trump would be the first U.S. president to preside over a global business empire, one that includes seven resorts, hotels and other projects in foreign countries, 11 more under construction and plans for many more. Among them are properties in nations where the United States has important economic and national security concerns - such as Turkey, Indonesia, the United Arab Emirates and Azerbaijan."

BRENNAN TO RETIRE - Daily News' Ken Lovett: "Veteran Brooklyn Democratic Assemblyman James Brennan has decided not to seek reelection, the Daily News has learned. First elected to the Assembly in 1984, Brennan, 64, is expected to make a formal announcement Tuesday that he will not run again in a district that covers parts of Park Slope, Flatbush, Kensington, Midwood and Windsor Terrace. Brooklyn Democratic Leader Frank Seddio confirmed Sunday he's heard from those who have spoken to Brennan that he is not running. Robert Carroll, a young Central Brooklyn Democrat and lawyer, is expected to run for the seat with Brennan's backing."

TROUBLE AT CUNY - New York Times' David Chen: "On the City College of New York's handsome Gothic campus, leaking ceilings have turned hallways into obstacle courses of buckets. The bathrooms sometimes run out of toilet paper. The lectures are becoming uncomfortably overcrowded, and course selections are dwindling, because of steep budget cuts. The faculty of the college's well-regarded engineering school is so 'disengaged and beaten,' an assessment last year warned, that if 'serious shortcomings' were not rectified, the school could fail to earn reaccreditation. 'We have gone backwards,' said Frederick R. Brodzinski, a senior administrator and adjunct professor in computer science who plans to retire in September after 30 years at the university. 'Morale is horrible on campus. There are too many highly paid administrators, and there's a lack of clear leadership. We have stepped down on the ladder that we were climbing for about 10 years.'"

AIMING HIGH-"3.3 Million Were Expected at Trade Center Attraction; a Million Haven't Shown Up," by Times' Charles V. Bagli: "In New York City, it seemed like you couldn't go wrong getting tourists' heads into the clouds. Especially if, like One World Observatory, you could boast the highest observation deck in the Western Hemisphere, atop the newly built 1 World Trade Center. When the observatory complex opened last year on the top three floors of the new Lower Manhattan building, its operator, Legends, predicted that it would draw 3.3 million visitors annually. That was optimistic by a million. This week, the video wall in the Global Welcome Center, which displays a running tally of visitors, put the total number at just 2.3 million since the observatory opened on May 29, 2015."

-"Four Seasons restaurant to live on at 280 Park Ave.," by Post's Lois Weiss: "The Four Seasons, New York's most storied restaurant for nearly 60 years, will live anew. Ending months of speculation, owners Julian Niccolini and Alex von Bidder have signed a lease at 280 Park Ave., where it will open in 2017. The move will follow the restaurant's closing in July at the Seagram Building, where landlord Aby Rosen declined to renew its lease. The ink is barely dry on the new lease for just over 19,000 square feet at the office building owned by both Vornado Realty Trust and SL Green Realty Corp., sources told the Post. The real estate companies, led by Steve Roth and Mark Holliday, respectively, were so intent on getting the Four Seasons that they came up with millions in concessions for the build-out, sources said."

- "Sky high: NYC 'trophy apartment' could list for $250 million," by AP's Verena Dobnik: "Billionaires' Row. That's what New York real estate experts have dubbed a lineup of a half-dozen new superluxury skyscrapers overlooking Central Park ... One penthouse ... that went for more than $100 million seems almost a bargain compared to what will appear next year in a high-rise being built on Central Park South: a 23,000-square-foot, four-story apartment offered at $250 million. ... Floor plans show 16 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms, five balconies and a massive terrace."

THE HOME TEAMS -- POLITICO New York's Howard Megdal: Mets 1, White Sox 0: Like the Chanukah story on a pitcher's mound, the Mets expected little out of the struggling Matt Harvey, but received seven shutout innings.

-- Blue Jays 4, Yankees 2: The Yankees couldn't overcome eight scoreless inning by Marco Estrada.

-- The day ahead: the Liberty host Maya Moore and the defending WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx. The Yankees are in Toronto. The Mets host the White Sox.

** A Message from Nuclear Matters: New York's existing nuclear energy plants provide 61 percent of the state's carbon-free electricity and play a vital role in achieving our clean-energy and carbon-reduction goals. Additional premature retirements of safe, reliable nuclear energy plants mean New Yorkers would pay more for electricity, the economy would suffer and we would face substantially higher carbon emissions.

New York has taken an essential step forward to address the premature closures of our nuclear energy plants. The proposed development of a Clean Energy Standard by the Public Service Commission would, for the first time, ensure that existing nuclear plants are valued for their carbon-free attributes.

We urge the state to include all of New York's existing nuclear energy plants, regardless of their geography in the state, in the proposed Clean Energy Standard. All nuclear energy facilities bring significant reliability and clean-air benefits to New York. Learn more: **
