Capitol Confidential: State assemblyman unhappy with rebuffed efforts to give SUNY more autonomy

Release Date: November 29, 2010

An article in the Albany Times Union's Capitol Confidential blog looks at Assemblyman Mark Schroeder's unhappiness with Sheldon Silver's leadership, particularly the way Assembly Democrats rebuffed efforts to give SUNY more autonomy, and includes a letter Schroeder wrote to Assemblywoman Deborah Glick in which he questioned her "close attention" to issues important to Upstate New York, noting that, "Perhaps you were correct in asserting that these initiatives were not ignored. It is, after all, awfully difficult to strangle the life out of something unless you pay it at least some attention."
