February 14, 2011Honorable Andrew M. CuomoGovernor State of New York Executive Chamber Albany, New York 12224Dear Governor Cuomo:I read that you have included the reappropriation of funds for the New York State ConventionCenter to be located in Albany in your proposed 2011/12 Executive Budget. I have been a criticof this proposal since the first study of the need for a convention center was undertaken ten yearsago. Enclosed is a copy of a letter I sent to former Governor Spitzer, and re-sent to former Governor Paterson, stating my reasons for opposing the convention center, and proposing aReBuild Albany Construction Authority (RACA) in its place.I will not go into the reasons for my opposition of the convention center here, they areenumerated in the enclosure, but I do want to ask you to consider my proposal for amending thePublic Authorities Law to reconstitute the Albany Convention Center Authority as the ReBuildAlbany Construction Authority.Here are the reasons for establishing RACA:RACA would: (a) provide funding to the City of Albany to rebuild or rehabilitate and/or demolish the 600 or so vacant buildings presently identified in the City; (b) provide funds for street and sidewalk reconstruction where the rehabilitated houses are located; and (c) create arevolving loan fund to help residents purchase the rehabilitated vacant buildings for owner occupancy. This revolving loan fund would also help to ensure a continuous source of monies toRACA for future home ownership initiatives.
