Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, who stepped down from her post as Democratic Party co-chair, will not accept the Working Families Party line for governor if offered by the union-backed organization.

Miner resigned as co-chair on Thursday following a publicly rocky relationship with her patron, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The resignation, a month before Democrats meet in Suffolk County for their state convention, fueled talk among Cuomo’s liberal critics that she could potentially challenge the governor with the WFP line, which has not ruled out granting the spot to someone other than Cuomo.

In an interview with WCNY’s The Capitol Pressroom on Friday morning, Miner laid that theory to rest.

“I’m a Democrat, I have great friends in the Working Families Party,” she said. “But I’m a Democrat.”

A spokesman for Miner went further with Time Warner Cable News’ Bill Carey, telling him of a potential run for governor by the mayor “No. It’s not happening.”

While advocacy groups with a liberal bent as well as unions remain restive over Cuomo’s fiscal policies, most self-identified liberal voters tend to give the governor high marks, polls have shown.

At the same time, Miner’s qualms with Cuomo don’t match up with what critics on the left have lobbed at Cuomo.

Miner’s original foray into criticizing Cuomo was leveled at his pension-smoothing proposal, which she didn’t go far enough in combating the financial woes of upstate cities. In other words, her issues stem from relieving local governments from Albany mandated cost drivers.

Lately, she had been clashing with the state, as well as Cuomo ally Joanie Mahoney, the Onondaga County executive, over a new sports arena in her city.

Liberals, on the other hand, remain upset over Cuomo’s tax policies, specifically those aimed at businesses.

Miner in the radio interview added that she remains focused on the job of being Syracuse’s mayor, calling it a 24-7 job.

“You don’t have the luxury often of thinking five years down the road,” she said.

“No. It’s not happening.”
