NY Post covers the Cuomo appointment of three outsiders to the BPCA board

July 8, 2017- The Post writes, “No one on Battery Park City’s governing board actually lives in the pricey downtown neighborhood — and Gov. Cuomo just passed up a chance to change that.

Cuomo recently named three new members to the seven-member board including Catherine McVay Hughes, who lives elsewhere downtown, and George Tsunis, a Cuomo donor who is a resident of tony Locust Valley on Long Island.

Cuomo’s third new appointee, Louis Bevilacqua, lives on Shelter Island off the tip of Long Island. He gave up his part-time apartment in the enclave June 30, although his law office is located in Battery Park City.

Cuomo’s appointments came just weeks before the state Legislature passed a bill requiring that two of the board’s members live in Battery Park City.

A spokeswoman for the governor said the bill is under review.”
