Finally, Spitzer stands up for the people who matter: Everyday New Yorkers

 

Sometimes everything isn't measured in hundreds of millions for a ballplayer, just the fare for the bus or for the subway. Gov. Spitzer did everything he could to keep those fares right where they are Tuesday. This wasn't about Alex Rodriguez's New York, it was about yours, the city whose life is carried along by $2 rides.

 

Spitzer stood and spoke up for all those who take those two-dollar rides and need those rides to get them to school and back, to their jobs and back, even to their dreams, who sometimes can't afford a weekly MetroCard or a monthly card. Spitzer called on the MTA to throw away a proposal that would have raised the price of those individual rides to $2.25, and the MTA went along with him.

 

It sounds like a small thing and is the opposite of that. It is a big thing Spitzer did, a big story of the city. This was the governor of the state acting like a true advocate for the city that grew him and grew his ambitions.

New Yorkers are still not going to like him anymore. I would give more credit to the Daily News and the NYPIRG than him.
