PURCHASE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has appointed the Republican who defeated his dad for governor to come up with ways to cut taxes for businesses and middle class New Yorkers.
Cuomo named former Gov. George Pataki and former state Comptroller Carl McCall as co-chairmen of a Tax Relief Commission on Wednesday.
“I have to confess, when I got the call from Gov. Cuomo, I wasn’t sure he had dialed the right number,” Pataki said.
