KUDOS for Thiele for calling it like it really is!
That president has 22 VPs and administrators earning annual salaries totalling over $4 million. He also was recently found to be paying one VP more than a quater of a million dollars in salary for a NO SHOW job & then hiring "consultants" for another quarter million$ to do the job the NO SHOW was supposed to be doing. At the same time, he terminated the entire 4 year college in Southampton and disrupted the education of 800 students, claiming "funding shortages".
The guy needs to get his prorities straight. He is supposed to be there to guide the education of the students - not to line the pockets of administrators. If he needed funds to continue the undergraduate programs of the state's only fully "green" environmental sustainabilities college, he could have trimmed from the top instead of killing the whole school. But he admits that he never even considered any other options.
THANK YOU ASSEMBLYMAN THIELE for demanding accountability & for trying to protect the interests of these public university students & the NY taxpayers.
