" Tedisco can plausibly claim to be a reformer at the state level, and should resurrect and expand that agenda."

I'm not quite sure how he can plausibly claim to be a reformer. Reformer implies results. It may not be his fault that the Assembly (like the Senate) is rigged to treat members of the minority as worthless scum, rather than as the representatives of real New Yorkers. At the same time, minorities ALWAYS claim to be advocates of reform. We can see examples of how rarely they implement serious reform upon achieving power by looking at the Congressional and state Senate Dems. At best, he can somewhat plausibly claim to be a supposed advocate of reform.
