Governor Cuomo plans to rally New Yorkers, who back a property tax cap and gay marriage in growing numbers, to pressure the state legislature to pass those items. 

“If the people are with you, the politicians will follow,” said Cuomo.

While Cuomo plans his travels, he’s commissioned his Lieutenant Governor, Robert Duffy to speak to over 1000 pro gay marriage supporters due at the state Capitol for a rally on Monday. Later on, the teachers union is holding a candlelight vigil protesting part of the governor’s agenda, the recent deep cuts to school aid that he implemented as part of the state budget.  They will ask lawmakers to extend a temporary tax on millionaires due to expire at the end of the year to avert further school cuts.
