ALBANY – The Chancellor of SUNY school in New York is resigning.
Chancellor Jim Malatras announced his resignation in a letter to the Chairman of the SUNY Board of Trustees on Thursday.
The news follows several calls for his resignation after reports of disturbing text messages and emails sent by Malatras were made public last week.
The communications were a part of a New York State Attorney General investigation into sexual harassment allegations against former Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Messages were sent to some of Cuomo’s aides and highest members of office about Lindsey Boylan. She was a former aide to the governor and first woman to publicly accuse him of sexual harassment.
His last day on the job is Friday, January 14, 2022.
