In the new Albany Power 100 list, several with Atlantic Yards ties

Many of those listed in City & State's Albany Power 100 List are predictable: the Governor, and the leaders of the Assembly and Senate. Note, however, several with Atlantic Yards ties:
  • 6. Secretary to the Governor Lawrence Schwartz (a sometime gatekeeper on Atlantic Yards issues)
  • 17. Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO, Partnership for New York City (a reliable AY backer)
  • 24. Judy Rapfogel, Chief of Staff to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (whose son works for Forest City Ratner and husband's charity benefited from a Barclays Center concert)
  • 33. Gary LaBarbera, President, Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York (signed the agreement allowing for lower union wages at the modular factory)
  • 51. Suri Kasirer, President, Kasirer Consulting ("Perhaps the most successful lobbyist in New York City and one of the most successful in Albany," her firm works for Forest City Ratner)
