Dear Friends:

I am pleased to have the opportunity to send greetings to the Board of Trustees of the City University of New York (CUNY) as you meet for your annual Staten Island Borough Hearing.

Since its creation, the College of Staten Island (CSI) has done an excellent job providing our city and borough residents with an affordable and quality education while preparing them to be the future leaders our city and borough needs. Thank you to CSI’s staff and leadership for all of their work educating our young people and teaching them the skills they need to be leaders in our community.

CSI also continues to be a wonderful community partner, and my office has worked with them on several initiatives. I am grateful to Dr. Fritz and his staff for their willingness to partner with us to make Staten Island a better place.

I thank the Board of Trustees for your work and ask you to continue focusing your attention on providing CUNY students with the tools they need to reach their potential.

James S. Oddo
Staten Island Borough President
