Governor Cuomo Visits Binghamton University
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is continuing to push his priorities around the state with a stop at Binghamton University.
Cuomo says he wants municipalities to step up to combine services to save money as Broome County last week announced its plans for shared services with the formation of a property tax savings committee.
While some municipalities in Broome have said they are game for signing on to sharing services, others have said the loss of control of where efforts are directed would compromise quality of life for residents.
In an appearance at Binghamton University, Cuomo also touted accomplishment through the Regional Economic Development Council like the new Dick’s Sporting Goods Distribution Center and the work building the Binghamton University Pharmacy School and moving the BU Nursing School to Johnson City.
In addition, the Democrat said he is looking at three million dollars to go to the Route 434 Greenway bike and pedestrian trail running from Binghamton University to downtown, offering free tuition to state colleges and universities and promoting the industrial hemp agri-industry.
