Sullivan college budget slashed; lawmakers suggest “change in leadership”

Lawmaker David Sager said those “losses far outweigh the cuts that we are suggesting.” He said that the people who had turned out to support the college should travel to Albany because state funding for SCCC is supposed to run about 33% of the budget, but in actuality only reaches about 15%. Sager concluded by saying that, in the future, “I would like to visit Mr. Walter’s proposed resolution and take it into consideration.”

The committee voted unanimously to cut the budget, and the move is expected to be adopted by the full board on May 17.
