Blackstone’s Mulrow Becomes Cuomo’s Top New York Aide

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed as
his top aide William Mulrow, a senior managing director at
Blackstone Group LP, the world’s largest alternative asset

The move comes as Cuomo, a 57-year-old Democrat, embarks on
his second term. It was part of a wider staff shuffle that
included the appointment of Cuomo’s budget director, Robert Megna, as the new director of the New York State Thruway
Authority, operator of the largest U.S. toll road.

“New ideas and talent are critical to innovation and
success,” Cuomo said in a statement e-mailed today that
announced the changes. “This team will build on the
extraordinary progress made over the last four years by bringing
experience, energy and fresh perspectives to the table.”

Mulrow, who was Cuomo’s appointee as the chairman of the
New York State Housing Finance Agency, replaces Larry Schwartz,
who is leaving for the private sector. Cuomo’s closest adviser
through his first term, Schwartz has been questioned by the U.S.
Attorney’s Office in Manhattan over the administration’s
meddling with an anti-corruption panel the governor created in
2013 to probe the legislature.

Still, turnover at the beginning of a new term is typical
of any administration, and Mulrow brings with him decades of
political and government work. He was a senior adviser to the
1990 re-election campaign of three-term Governor Mario Cuomo,
Andrew’s father who died Jan. 1, and was director of the United
Nations Development Corporation, among other posts, according to
Cuomo’s statement. He’ll leave Blackstone, where he was a senior
managing director of the investor relations and business
development group.

Tappan Zee

At the Thruway Authority, Megna will replace Tom Madison,
who resigned last month. The agency is building a $4 billion
replacement for the Tappan Zee Bridge across the Hudson River,
among the nation’s largest infrastructure projects.

As part of building the span, the authority’s debt load may
swell to more than $7 billion, from about $3.7 billion in 2013,
by the time the job is finished in 2018. The agency hasn’t
provided a specific plan to pay for it, according to budget

Last month, the agency approved a $1.7 billion budget with
a deficit of about $25 million and no plan to close it. The gap
is projected to grow to $300 million in 2018, budget documents

6 affordable housing developments to share $2M

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Six groups that are developing nearly 150 affordable dwellings across Rhode Island are sharing over $2 million in federal funds for the projects.

Rhode Island Housing announced Tuesday the recipients of the second round of this year’s HOME funds. They include Church Community Housing Corp.; Habitat for Humanity South County; Neighborworks Blackstone River Valley Fernwood; Omni Development Corp.; Sankofa Apartments; and Washington County Community Development Corp.

The board approved the funds last month. It will help develop 145 homes and apartments in Burrillville, Exeter, Providence, North Kingstown and Tiverton.

The federal HOME program is the largest block grant to state and local governments to support housing for low- and moderate-income families. The money can be used to acquire property, rehabilitate existing properties or build new homes.

6 affordable housing developments to share $2M

Residents and business owners benefit from neighborhood marketing and branding initiative

WASHINGTON, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Seventeen communities from around the country have been selected for an initiative that will help them attract and retain residents, businesses and investment, announced NeighborWorks America, a national nonprofit corporation that creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities.

The 17 organizations will work intensively over the next year with expert marketing consultants and local stakeholders to develop marketing plans for their target neighborhoods. These plans will include strategies to reposition the neighborhoods’ images and brands in their regional housing markets.

“A community needs a positive story to create a sense of pride and catalyze investment,” said Ascala Sisk, director of the Stable Communities Initiative at NeighborWorks America. “Despite negative perceptions, these neighborhoods have strengths upon which they can build. Through this program, NeighborWorks America is helping communities to bolster these strengths and spread the word about those assets in a way that resonates.”

NeighborWorks America launched the Neighborhood Marketing Program in 2012 and has been working with 16 organizations through the first round of the initiative to create strong neighborhood brands and rebuild market demand. The first round participants have been implementing a range of creative strategies to promote their neighborhoods, including hosting neighborhood events and new logo launch parties, and creating neighborhood associations. Visit www.stablecommunities.org/marketing for highlights and to watch a video that demonstrates how these marketing tactics are improving internal and external perceptions.

The second round of the program is made possible with a $750,000 donation from the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation. Additional funders include Capital One Foundation and Citi.

“At the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation, we focus our support on neighborhood revitalization efforts in meaningful ways throughout the communities we serve,” said Connie Wright, assistant director with the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation.  “We recognize that a key component of community revitalization is to develop an effective local neighborhood marketing plan that creates a positive connection to the community.  The Neighborhood Marketing Initiative is designed to help distressed communities achieve that goal and the Wells Fargo Housing Foundation is delighted to support NeighborWorks America and its network members with this vital work.”    

The second round Neighborhood Marketing Program participants and their targeted neighborhoods are:

  • Houston, TX: Avenue Community Development Corporation, Near Northside/Northside Village
  • Charlotte, NC: Charlotte-Mecklenberg Housing Partnership, Seversville
  • St. Paul, MN: Dayton’s Bluff Neighborhood Housing Services, Payne-Phalen
