Fare Hike Four Looking Out for Number One
If you’re tracking the progress of MTA rescue talks, Jimmy Vielkind’s Albany dispatches at the Politicker are a must-read. I had to highlight this exchange he had yesterday with Fare Hike Four member Pedro Espada, Jr., which pretty much sums up the current predicament:
I asked for this thoughts.
"I’m elated," he said. "Today’s a great day for Pedro Espada, the M.T.A. ridership and the State Senate."
I asked if I should read anything into him listing his own name
before the M.T.A ridership. He slapped me on the back and replied "only
that you’re very imaginative."
