New York State Senator Mark J. Grisanti (R,I – Buffalo) announced this evening that his goal of 1,000 signatures on the petition he launched earlier in the day in opposition to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plan to give free college to state prison inmates has been shattered in less than seven hours. The petition, titled ”Say ‘NO’ To Free College For Prisoners” sat at 1,338 this evening after being launched earlier in the day. The number continues to go up.
“Keep the signatures coming,” said Grisanti. “I am proud, but not surprised, that many Western New Yorkers agree that we should put the needs of hardworking, law-abiding citizens who are positively contributing to society first.” To sign the petition, visit www.senatormarkgrisanti.com
