Gov. Cuomo's Message To BOE Prez. Oberg


"The people of this state simply can NOT
afford to pay any more taxes, period."
(Gov. Andrew Cuomo ~State of the State speech, 1/5/11)

New York is #1 in school spending, but #34 in results.
Gov. Cuomo's Message to Maggie Brooks, Jack Auberger & Company:

"New York has NO future as the tax capital of the nation. Our young people will NOT stay, businesses will NOT come."

13 of the 16 highest taxed counties in the US are located in New York State

If I'm not mistaken, it seemed as though Mr. Cuomo would fully supprt a communitee spending over a million dollars annually to ship kids to their school of choice. He seems very open to these sorts of ideas which bring about such positive results for the district as a whole.

Reality is starting to catch on. There is no more sugar daddy in Albany to bail us out.
Time for some people to do their job.

To 4:30PM ~~ I wonder what a few letters to Cuomo detailing the specifics of what happens in Greece would cause in terms of a reaction ... ? Interesting to ponder.

SCATS I have pondered such action, and if time allows will do so. If you heard what he said and eventually shouted about NY's juvenile centers (ie. expense w/o results), it isn't difficult to guess his feelings on our open enrollment policy. What I would give to hear our district mentioned in a speach concerning tax waste.

Anyone care to speculate on the low viscoscity fecal matter hitting the rotating propellor when every SD in the State finds out all that State Aid they counted on to pay for buildings ain't coming?

The fun part will eb local Districts coming up with a good story to splain how they have to increase taxes so you can double pay for something you're already paying for.

Has anyone ever seen a NY School District retire a bond because the State Aid money paid it off?
