Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office on Tuesday released a batch of schedules from April on his government transparency website CitizenConnects.

Among the highlights:

  • Cuomo on April 12 met with leaders of the state’s good-government groups as well as Working Families Party Executive Director Dan Cantor. The meeting came shortly after Cuomo ended the Moreland Commission To Investigate Public Corruption, which is now the subject of a U.S. attorney’s office.
  • Cuomo had a “working dinner” with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on April 8.
  • Cuomo on April 16 met with the CEO of Citibank Michael Corbat and economic adviser John Mack, a former CEO of Morgan Stanley.
  • Cuomo took private aircraft to a Suffolk County Democratic Dinner on April 28.
  • Cuomo met with statewide teachers union president Karen Magee on April 29, and earlier in the day huddled with Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein and and his top aide, John Emrick.
  • Cuomo met twice with Success Academy CEO Eva Moskowitz, a proponent of charter schools, on April 13 and April 24, along with New York City Deputy Mayor Tony Shorris.

Joe Percoco, a longtime aide and advance person for Cuomo, pops up several times in meetings. Percoco appears to have still been performing government work at this time before he formally transitioned off the executive chamber payroll to the campaign side.

His last appearance on the schedule is for an April 21 policy meeting. Percoco’s first paycheck from the Cuomo re-election campaign is dated April 24.

The schedules posted on the website provide a window into Cuomo’s daily meetings, fundraisers and travels and go further than the usual public schedule released via email to the press a day in advance.

As usual, it includes this caveat: “Other unofficial and personal events as well as information that might tend to compromise security have not been included.”
