At the same time that changes to the timeframe of the project were approved, Governor Paterson got in trouble for an unassociated reason. He came to Borough Hall for a televised interview. His poor eyesight may have given me the opportunity: I shoved my way through the crowd and planted myself in his path. We spoke for a minute or two, and afterwards everyone asked me what we talked about. I’m pretty sure the governor understood what I was asking him for, but he said that he didn’t have the power to do anything about it.
