The pretense that Governor Cuomo is looking out for the public interest and invites citizen participation:  -- see his "CitizenConnects"

& his collusion against the People -- on legislative pay raises --disguised as "mutuality"...
    
            
"The governor will have more opportunities to influence the Legislature.  Lawmakers have not received a pay raise in a dozen years, and they are eager to approve one after this fall's election, giving Mr. Cuomo another 'point of mutuality."  On Friday, he said he was 'open to it,' though he will doubtless seek support for elements of his policy agenda in return.

             The governor, who has been talked about as a potential 2016 presidential candidate, was happy to discuss his strategy for dealing with the Legislature..."

               New York Times, June 24, 2012 "A Governor Trying to Elude the Sophomore Slump", by Danny Hakim

"People are really happy that we've worked closely with the governor in a bipartisan fashion to get state government functioning again,' Dean G. Skelos of Nassau County, the Senate majority leader said in an interview. 'This is really resonating with voters."   New York Times, June 13, 2012 "Republicans, Outnumbered, Keep Power in Albany" by Thomas Kaplan
