Fitch Out at NY Thruway Authority.

You don’t have to be a veteran of New York politics to know you cross Andrew Cuomo (or any other governor of the Empire State) at your peril. Former Bridgeport mayor Bill Finch, who had fatal trouble figuring out how to get his name on the ballot in 2015, didn’t understand that he was not in Connecticut anymore.

Finch, who lost a bitter Democratic primary for mayor to Joseph Ganim two years ago, is out as head of the New York Thruway Authority after failing to bring appropriate enthusiasm to Governor Cuomo’s proposal to convert to cashless tolls.

Politico New York has the story.
