Hillary Clinton Attends Signing of New York College Tuition Law

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton joined New York Governor Andrew Cuomo at LaGuardia Community College in Queens where she promoted the state’s new plan to provide free college tuition to in-state students whose family makes less than $100,000 a year. The income threshold to be eligible for free tuition will increase to $125,000 in 2019. The law requires that students who take part in the program to remain residents of New York for a number of years equal to the number of years they took part in the program.

Clinton applauded the plan in brief remarks today, as well as on Twitter. Clinton said, “I am here to today to reinforce what the governor has accomplished. He is absolutely right: education and training are the future.” She also said that the plan is a good framework for other states and the federal government. Clinton added, “Paying for college should not defer or destroy dreams. I’m hoping too that Congress will come to its senses and will understand we don’t need to be building walls, we need to be building bridges. And the best bridge to the future is a good education.”

Meet the Architect Stiffed by Donald Trump


During last night’s debate, Hillary Clinton spoke about small business owners who were not financially compensated by Donald Trump for work completed. Hillary for America released the following introducing Andrew Tesoro, an architect that was not fairly compensated by Trump.

During last night’s presidential debate, Hillary Clinton discussed the many small business owners hung out to dry by Donald Trump, including Manhattan-based architect Andrew Tesoro who was stiffed out of over $100,000 dollars on a design project for the clubhouse at Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor.

Despite previously saying he “love[d]” the design and that Tesoro was a “top notch” architect, Trump attacked Tesoro during the debate saying, “Maybe he didn’t do a good job, and I wasn’t satisfied with his work.” Tesoro was previously featured in a video released by Hillary for America where he shared how Trump almost put him out of business and was forced to max out his credit lines and dip into his son’s college savings to survive.

On MSNBC this morning, Tesoro spoke out and read from a glowing letter Trump wrote praising his work.
