FILE - In this Nov. 14, 2018 file photo, New York State Sen. Michael Gianaris, center, calls on supporters to remove the Amazon app from their phones and boycott the company, as he address a coalition rally and press conference in New York. The first clue that opposition to the project could succeed in derailing the deal came in early February, when Gianaris was appointed to a seat on a state panel that often has to approve state funding for big economic development projects. According to the rules governing the 5-member Public Authorities Control Board, funds for any individual project can be vetoed by a single member, meaning that if the Amazon deal went before the board, Gianaris could kill it unilaterally.
