Don’t Zee the need

New York Daily News - - NEWS - Ken­neth Lovett

AL­BANY — An on­line pe­ti­tion seek­ing to strip Mario Cuomo’s name off the new Tap­pan Zee Bridge had gen­er­ated nearly 44,000 as of Mon­day evening.

The pe­ti­tion posted by Port Ch­ester res­i­dent and Repub­li­can Mon­roe Mann on Change.org says the $4 bil­lion new bridge should keep the old Tap­pan Zee moniker rather than honor the cur­rent Gov. Cuomo’s late fa­ther, who served three terms as gov­er­nor.

Cuomo spokes­woman Abbey Fashouer said the Leg­is­la­ture passed the law nam­ing the bridge in a bi­par­ti­san man­ner.
