“Gov Cuomo, you’re the Scrooge of all CUNY and SUNY”
Cuomo has already given New York a “free” college program, but as you know, it’s never enough.
The New York Post reports:
Students protest Cuomo vetoing bill for more public college funding
He’s Gov. Scrooge to a group of CUNY student activists.
About 20 state-university students gathered outside Gov. Cuomo’s Midtown office Monday to protest his vetoing of legislation that would have boosted public college funding.
“Gov Cuomo, you’re the Scrooge of all CUNY and SUNY student who are trying their hardest to get their ultimate goal and graduate while having to worry about how they are going to rest their heads for the next day, while they are worried about how to feed their families for the next day!’’ activist Jamell Henderson shouted through a megaphone.
“I know you and your staff can hear us. Sign the bill today — give the students of SUNY and CUNY the Christmas miracle we need.”
Cuomo was in Albany on Monday.
Earlier this month, Cuomo nixed a bill that would have increased state monies for an array of student needs from transportation to textbooks. It was the third time the governor KO’d the legislation.
SUNY and CUNY officials, citing rising costs across the board, have joined student groups and legislators in calling for the bill’s passage.
