Republican Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino does not see eye to eye with Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on most issues.

But Astorino in a radio interview with Fred Dicker on Talk-1300 backed a multi-year extension of mayoral control for city schools, which is due to expire this month.

“I do think mayoral control is important issue,” Astorino said in the interview. “The mayor of New York City should have control, should have accountability.”

Senate Republicans have introduced legislation that would extend mayoral control in New York City, but for only 12 months. The measure backed by Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan would tie mayoral control to raising the statewide cap on charter schools.

“I don’t think it’s right to have mayoral accountability for one year,” Astorino said. “I do believe there should be mayoral control for New York City.”

De Blasio had sought a permanent extension of mayoral control, but in recent weeks has settled for a three-year sunset as backed by Assembly Democrats.

Astorino was the Republican nominee for governor in 2014 and is considering another campaign for statewide office in 2018.

In the interview, Astorino did criticize Gov. Andrew Cuomo for what he said was a listless end of session.

Cuomo has not appeared in public since June 14, when he held a news conference in Yonkers to unveil a $100 million fund for struggling schools.

“I think it’s all catching up to him right now,” Astorino said. “Nobody trusts him because they don’t know what he stands for.”

He added: “When you don’t have an anchor or a core set of beliefs, you don’t have anything to fall back on.”
