While we wait to see what happens, or doesn't happen, today in Albany, New York Magazine  takes a look at four mayoral aspirants and how their positions on congestion pricing may affect their chances of succeeding Michael Bloomberg.
And don't forget Marty Markowitz , whose most notable contribution to the congestion pricing discussion has probably been his vehement opposition to new bridge tolls.
On a related note, the Daily Politics  reports that Deputy Mayor Kevin Sheekey issued a not-so-subtle warning on the radio this morning that state pols will be judged on where they come down, and could be supported or opposed accordingly in future races.
Whether or not the plan passes in Albany, how will congestion pricing influence your vote for the next mayor?
