Wagner Faculty Op-Eds

Wagner Faculty Op-Eds

Professors Dall Forsythe and Dennis Smith weighed in with recent op-ed essays in the Albany Times-Union and New York Post, respectively. Prof. Forsythe, who served as budget director under Gov. Mario Cuomo, co-authored an opinion piece May 17 arguing for a change in the state government's fiscal year. He said a July 1 fiscal year, which 46 states already have, would create more time for legislative participation, better information about revenues, and an opportunity to produce a completed budget on time. Prof. Smith, meanwhile, co-wrote an essay May 9 that underscores the risks of paying newly hired New York City police officers just $25,100 a year, a 40-percent drop compared to the previous contractual starting pay for rookie officers.
