ALBANY -- It's one of those basic little items state government reporters at least check everyday: the governor's schedule. On down days, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office at least gives a general idea where he will be (such as "New York City area'').
Today, no such schedule, and Cuomo officials are not saying why.
It is, though, freshman move-in day at Harvard University, where the governor's daughter, Cara, is going to college. One of his other daughters, Mariah, is starting at Brown University (move-in day there is this weekend, so maybe we can expect more missing schedule information).
Last week, Cuomo said the time he wanted to spend with his daughters prevented him from accompanying President Obama on Obama's full trip across upstate to Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Auburn and Binghamton (and Tully for you Central New York watchers). Cuomo made it to the first event with Obama at UB's Alumni Arena.
