A who's who of the "1%!" Just a collection of Cuomo's buddies: politicians, union presidents, retired bankers, business executives, and lobbyists. Not a single teacher, principal, superintendent, or school board member in the bunch, the closest they get is an Ivy League professor. Can't wait to see what kind of "reform" these hacks come up with!
