Legislative Update: Governor Gigi wins lottery, shares with colleges

Well, this is an unexpected turn of events. After months–years, even–of threatened 15% across-the-board state budget cuts, Gov. Gigi announced today that she had recently won the Megamillions lottery and was donating her winnings to “the long-suffering community colleges of our fair state.” After taxes, her winnings should total approximately $98.3 million, enough to cover the budget gap at every college in the state without resorting to the previously planned 13% tuition hike.

Pres. Bob Bishop expressed both relief and gratitude for Gigi’s gift. “It really seems like a miracle to have this happen at the eleventh hour,” he said. “Either that, or something a staff member would fantasize about on her lunch break.”
