Gov. Cuomo gets it about LICH all right -- he gets that selling LICH property would be a cash cow that would save SUNY Downstate from their years of mismanagement and his friend who lobbies for Brooklyn Hospital, in that Brooklyn Hospital will get more patients. LICH is a much better hospital than Brooklyn Hospital. Rise up Brooklyn -- don't let Cuomo do this to us! He's worse than Gov. Christie. Sick the contempt court on him and SUNY.

We voted for de Blasio because of his stance on LICH. We will vote AGAINST Cuomo because of his!
