AP Gov Fieldtrip!

State of the State Address

On Wednesday, January 13th, our class took a trip to Albany to hear Governor Cuomo give his State of the State Address. We left early in the morning and arrived around 10:30. First, we were provided lunch and listened to Maine-Endwell alumnus Tom Mastro (Student President of the SUNY Schools) give us a speech about the SUNY system. Then, we played trivia with students from around the state. After lunch and trivia, we went into the Convention Center and listened to Cuomo's speech. He outlined his agenda for 2016, including his goals for maternity leave, minimum wage, and infrastructure. Some students were interviewed by Fox News when we returned to the school.
