Mario Cuomo on Government Reform

Former Democratic Governor of New York


Permitted ballot question on State Island secession from NYC

Former NYC Mayor David Dinkins: If Mario Cuomo and the speaker of the Assembly at that time [1993], Mel Miller, had not permitted the Staten Island secession issue to have been on the ballot, you would not have gotten the turnout you got in Staten Island, and Rudy came out of Staten Island forty thousand votes ahead of me. Well, if the margin is fifty, sixty, or seventy thousand, Staten Island alone made the difference. And Rudy was by no means perfect, but they ran a good race and they won. Some people said if it hadn't been for Crown Heights, I might have won--that it made a difference. I don't agree. I have responses, but, obviously, they didn't mean too much to the general media and the public at the time. All that notwithstanding, the margin was very, very thin.
