Cuomo Wants To Destroy CUNY Because CUNY Board Isn't Nice To Him

So reports the NY Post:

Gov. Cuomo ultimately wants to take over of the City University of New York and merge it with the state’s public university system, sources told The Post.

Cuomo officials are examining how the State University of New York can incorporate CUNY’s four-year colleges and graduate schools, while slashing administrative costs at both institutions, the sources said.

“It’s a precursor to a merger, but dismantling CUNY won’t be easy,” one political source said.


His obsession with CUNY runs deep.

“He just has a thing about CUNY,” said a high-ranking state government source. “This has to do with Andrew not controlling it. What he doesn’t control he likes to destroy.”

Cuomo currently has little control over CUNY because the appointees to the board are largely leftovers from the Pataki and Bloomberg administrations. SUNY’s board, conversely, is littered with Cuomo allies.

A political consultant said Cuomo is rankled that the state pays 46 percent of CUNY’s $3 billion budget yet “they treat him like s–t.”

In addition, this apparently hurts him:
The CUNY faculty union endorsed Bill de Blasio in his mayoral primary but did not endorse Cuomo for governor.

We are governed by a child-man.



  1. Yes, a childish reptile, coddled and nurtured by the cowardliness of Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch and Preet Bharara. This is systemic dysfunction and political racketeering.

    1. Yup. Preet was merely sent in by DC to take all the dirty laundry Cuomo dug up and use it to knock out the Assemblymen. Anybody who ever resisted Cuomo got put in the clink.

  2. Did anyone else hear Cuomo encouraging a Constitutional Convention recently?

    He's in it for the long haul now that Preet has backed off.

    Teachers and other government employees here in NY are in trouble.

    1. Not sure the Constitutional Convention possibility helps him:

  3. Preet Bharara , Loretta Lynch and Brack Obama are the enablers of this toxic governor Cuomo. He is the end result of their amoral political ideology and indifference to community justice.

  4. The fish rots from the head down.
    An old Italian saying

  5. There are some good features within some meaning and interest and hopefully this would gain more perfection by the time, so indeed a very good chance for anyone to get started and try those elements.
