ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has released a new website to solicit comments from New Yorkers, promote his agenda, and announce some meetings and travel destinations.
The state-paid website will also allow what Cuomo says will be live online town halls. He’ll hold the first internet chat Saturday morning and aides will do more in following weeks.
Cuomo has said he wants to promote his initiatives directly to the public.
Cuomo’s press office has been aggressive when faced with opposing views in news stories. His administration has also been criticized for blacking out material in state records sought by reporters under the state Freedom of Information Law.
