We believe it is highly irresponsible for the City Council to vote on such a financially risky and massive expansion plan without subjecting the financing details to a thorough public review process. NYU has ignored calls for the release of this crucial information from its own faculty, including its own prestigious Stern School of Business. Speaker Quinn should stand with us and demand the release of this information before it's too late. Join the fight at: StandUp4NYC.com
We demand that as a precondition to any further City Council action, you require NYU to: (1) fully disclose the financing details of their massive expansion project, including but not limited to the full business plan; (2) submit those financing details to a thorough and public review process.
As City Council Speaker, you have the power to compel NYU to release this information to the public and we call upon you to exercise that power for the good of New York City.
