Cuomo, other New York officials plan visit to troubled Puerto Rico – LidTime.com

Now, Governor Andrew Cuomo is planning to visit the city personally to show support along with New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. The governor’s trip comes at the end of summer marked by argument between the mayor and the governor, who literally fought about everything in private as well as public, with matters concerning Uber Technologies Inc, riding services to the dealing with the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease.

“We are going to put together a delegation that has elected officials, has expertise in health care, finance, etc.”, Cuomo said Wednesday after a Manhattan news conference. Other advocates have said the federal government’s treatment of Puerto Rico as a territory rather than a state has short-changed it on Medicare and Medicaid funding. A spokeswoman for the governor declined to comment on why the mayor wasn’t invited.
