ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Cynthia Nixon's economic development plan calls for investments in green jobs, minority communities and crumbling infrastructure.

The former "Sex and the City" star and Democratic candidate for New York governor also wants greater transparency and accountability in state economic development spending.

The candidate's plan was first reported Tuesday by The Associated Press.

Nixon says she wants to spread the benefits of economic development funding broadly while strengthening protections for workers.

Nixon faces two-term incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo in next month's primary. Cuomo has touted billions of dollars in investments in the upstate economy, but critics complained about the number of jobs created and note that two former top state officials have been convicted, along with several real estate developers, on corruption charges stemming from their involvement in Cuomo's economic development initiatives.
