Yes they did. I just hope they have alternate means of convincing the players in Albany of the common sense course of action. What Hogan has planned makes no sense and is corrupt.

It would be great if CSEA and PEF were to take a bst to NYC to greet Hogan when he is honored by Community Access INC, with their Advocacy Award -- at their $1,000 per plate GALA. You can understand why they would honor him - since they were awarded
grants totaling more than $13 MILLION ... and regularly testify in support of his decisions.

How about a fundraiser to buy a table at the GALA.
Only $15,000, but includes ten seats.What a bargain. Do you supposed he gets a free table for himself and his robots from Central Office?

Why was Rosemary Spriggs at the meeting with Hogan (as a concerned citizen)? She has nothing to do with MVPC anymore. Her pension is safe. She moved certain people up the ladder to keep them safe. She still has contacts at CNY PC and HPC to decide where MVPC staff go. She has to protect her niece and nephew currently working at MVPC.

Ms. Spriggs did not have to be there. She was invited. She is sick over the prospect of mvpc closing so Hutchings can stay on life support for a few more years. She was on griffos side. Don't be so quick to judge her as implicit in any of this b.s.

WE WILL TAKE ALL THE SUPPORT WE CAN GET. IF R. SPRIGGS CAN HELP- great. think about it:she knows A Lot having been an insider. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Colleen pushedher to retire before she wanted to. She is tough. Good for us.

It all rests in the governors hands now. Hopefully he will see how many millions it will take to keep the garbage dump Hutchings open for a few more years before it collapses

We hope that Cuomo wakes to the fact that
1. HOGAN didn't do his homework on MVPC/HPC
2. Has found a clue that HOGAN is a crooked dirtbag FUNNELING MILLIONS $$ ln contracts and grants to his friends
3. This is not the road to the White House for Andrew-he won't even get reelected in NYS.

His legacy will be what he did that created the worst crisis in the mental health system since the DUMPING/deinstitutuonalization in the 60's.

Get everyone you know to call or email the governor's office. The decision will probably be announced this week.Time is running out.Hogan's justification will be low admission #s at MVPC. BUT they were same as HPC -even though Hogan's "people" ...directors...kept them down intentionally to be able to do what he is trying to do--- close MVPC and expand HUTCHINGS. ACT NOW!

There should be a thorough investigation regarding the actual cost of this move as well as the politics connected to Syracuse! Collen Sawyer should not be the administrtor of MVPC and Hutchings . Donald Sawyer was the administrator on CNY !!!!! Should they all be profiting off tax payers dollars and the mentally ill!!F

They have no real pull in any of this. Its up to the governor now. The costs are known to all. Hogan does not care about the cost.

He does not care about the clients either!!!Staff are being solicited to HPC and Central before clients have been transferred!!! Relocating Rhe children's unit is just dangerous!!!

Hogan is trying to make mvpc seem less viable and thus support his decision.
