Newspaper Claims Cuomo-Appointed MTA Director Is “MIA”

Daily News reports, “One of Gov. Cuomo’s men at the MTA has been MIA. A Daily News review of official minutes for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board shows that Larry Schwartz, a former top aide to Cuomo who was appointed in June 2015, has been absent from dozens of hearings and meetings.” The report adds, “Schwartz strongly defended his work on the board, citing his years of experience in government and his position as secretary to two governors. He said those roles separate him from most of his board colleagues.”
