Hauppauge, NY - February 24th, 2015 - Robert Vecchio, President of the William Floyd Board of Education, joined NYS Assemblyman Dean Murray and other lawmakers today at the New York State Office Building in Hauppauge to urge Governor Cuomo to release the Executive Budget State Aid Proposal for the 2015-16 school year. Last month, the governor announced that the amount of state funding for school districts would be withheld until his proposed list of educational reforms are enacted by the Legislature.
 
Accompanying Assemblyman Murray in urging the governor to release the State Aid runs were fellow Long Island lawmakers Al Graf, Dave McDonough and Ed Ra. “Holding back on releasing school aid runs is unconscionable,” said Assemblyman Murray. “Our superintendents and school boards need this information to plan and budget for next school year. Withholding this information does a disservice to them, and to our children, who deserve the best education possible. We are calling on the governor to do the right thing and release the school aid runs immediately.”
 
“As an elected official just like Governor Cuomo, my residents expect me to do a job,” said Mr. Vecchio. “I expect the governor to govern and release the state aid runs so we can formulate our budget, inform our taxpayers and make the right investments for our students.”
