They shared a penchant for lofty rhetoric and a fondness for flashy cars. They liked to be in charge. But only one was the governor of New York. And so the other, Alain E. Kaloyeros — the former president of New York Polytechnic Institute who became Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s “economic guru” — squelched his own alpha male personality and toiled to improve his standing with Mr. Cuomo. He hired a lobbyist to learn how to curry the governor’s favor. He peppered his emails with glowing praise of Mr. Cuomo. And then, as the point person behind the “Buffalo Billion,” the governor’s signature economic development project, Dr. Kaloyeros steered more than $600 million in state … [Read more...] about Culture of Fear and Ambition Distorted Cuomo’s Economic Projects
