SUNY's Upstate LICH Hearing a 'Slap In the Face'

Last Thursday Judge Baynes criticized the way the SUNY board violated the Open Meetings Law in their rush to shut down Long Island College Hospital (LICH). Looks like they're at it again:

SUNY going to hold its new public hearing on closing LICH in Purchase, New York (that's at least  40 miles away, in Westchester).

Not only that but the new hearing "was announced too late to allow interested parties to sign up to for a reserved slot to comment on the closure," the Brooklyn Eagle reported on Friday.

State Senator Daniel Squadron calls this "a slap in the face."

From Wikipedia: Hubris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one's own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.
