Fino (1913-2009) was a member of the New York State Senate (1945-1950) and U. S. Representative from New York (1953-1968). A Republican who held both conservative and moderate views, he's probably best known for his battles with Mayor John V. Lindsay (1966-1973), a fellow Republican who became a Democrat in 1971. Fino, who was also Chairman of the Bronx Republican Party for a time, often criticized what he perceived as elitism in Lindsay, calling him a "cafe society" mayor and opposed his initiatives, such as a plan to promote New York City as "Fun City". He was elected to the New York Supreme Court in 1968, where he served for three years. Fino published his autobiography, My Life in Politics and Public Service, in 1986. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Normal postal stamps. Neatly torn open at top edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
