Assemblyman David Gantt is calling for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to take immediate action on the Rochester City School District’s financial crisis. Gantt says that the state has failed to act while the district floundered for more than 40 years.
In a letter to Cuomo on Monday, Gantt strongly condemned the City School District’s leadership for what he says was deliberate and systematic overspending of at least $30 million in the last fiscal year.
He proposes that a financial control board be established, followed by mayoral control of the district.
