Cuomo On Tisch Departure

Governor Andrew Cuomo responded to the news that Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch will step down at the end of her current term with polite praise, but no substantive comment on her tenure. ┬áTisch, appointed by the Board of Regents with little gubernatorial input, has had friction with Cuomo and his administration. ┬áSpeaking after an unrelated event in Manhattan this afternoon Cuomo called her an “extraordinary citizen”, adding “I thank her very much for her service”.
