Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s dream of the LaGuardia Airtrain is beginning to look a lot like California’s high- speed rail dream; both expensive dreams with major costs overruns that drain their taxpayers of much need money that could be put to much better use.
One day after Syracuse.Com reported that an ex-Air Force general is out as CEO of Nuair, Central NY’s drone industry alliance had quietly left the state-subsidized organization in March of 2019, Governor Cuomo announces that New York will provide a $250,000 grant to begin planning development of a 15th Center of Excellence to help foster collaboration among startup companies in the region, based in Central New York and serve as a hub for the region’s growing drone industry. One state-subsidized drone industry alliance loses its chief CEO without explanation and Gov. Cuomo quickly uses our money for a new organization, in the same area involved in the same drone industry. Would private industry, that answers to stockholders, do the same thing?
