NY Dems Name Amazon Critic to HQ2 Review Board

H15 ny dems name amazon critic hq2

New York Democrats have named state Senator Michael Gianaris to the board that will evaluate New York’s development deal with Amazon, setting up a possible fight with Governor Andrew Cuomo. Gianaris has been a critic of the Amazon deal to build a new headquarters in Long Island City, Queens. Cuomo, who has long courted Amazon’s business, offering billions in tax incentives, has the authority to block the appointment of Gianaris, though it would likely intensify anger among the Democratic lawmakers and activists who have opposed the Amazon deal.
