After all the hoopla, some of the people affected by Amazon’s decision to locate a second North American headquarters – split between Northern Virginia and New York City – are not so thrilled.

According to CNN, “on Monday, New York State Senator Michael Gianaris of Queens, who is a vocal critic of HQ2, was recommended to serve on the Public Authorities Control Board, according to a letter obtained by CNN Business.”

“The relatively unknown board weighs in on any financing and land use deals that run through public authorities, which primarily include economic development projects. It’s had some success in the past blocking major projects. In 2005, the board rejected a plan by then Mayor Michael Bloomberg to build a football stadium in Manhattan.”
