Is Cuomo opening day camps to bailout camp owner and Dem party chief Jay Jacobs?

Programs for special needs children will remain closed.

June 3, 2020 — New York’s schools are still closed. There won’t be summer school. Special needs children are not receiving home services they are entitled to, or year-round programs required by federal law, but yesterday Governor Andrew Cuomo decided to allow day camps to open this summer. Why the inconsistency?

Could it be that Cuomo is helping out his close political ally Jay Jacobs, owner of three very expensive day camps on Long Island? Jacobs owns Timber Lake Camps which runs three day camps, North Shore Day Camp, Hampton Country Day Camp and South Hampton Day Camp.  Jacobs is also the Chair of the New York State Democratic Committee, and the Chair of the Nassau County Democratic Committee, in short he is the head of Democratic Party in NY next to Cuomo.

¬†Why don’t you ask them. If rich kids can go to day camp why can’t special needs children get the services and school programs they are entitled to?
