At Congressional hearing tomorrow, Brodsky will be the sole New Yorker

Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Domestic Policy of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has released the witness list for the hearing tomorrow called “Gaming the Tax Code: Public Subsidies, Private Profits, and Big League Sports in New York,” and the only New Yorker is Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, whose committee yesterday released a scathing report on the new Yankee Stadium.

The president of the New York City Economic Development Corporation, Seth Pinsky, was scheduled to testify, but withdrew. Discussions with New York City officials about their appearance before the subcommittee are ongoing, according to Kucinich's office. Representatives from the New York Yankees will testify at hearing on October 7.

(I say in the headline that Brodsky will be the only New Yorker. Actually, a law professor from NYU will be testifying, so more accurately, Brodsky will be the only official from New York.)
