O'Connor Calls On Markey, Kennedy To Join Him in Demanding Harvard Reject COVID-19 Aid Funds

U.S Senate Candidate Kevin O’Connor made the following statement today regarding Harvard receiving federal aid for COVID-19 relief:

“Despite sitting on massive $40 billion endowment and running a nearly $300 million surplus, Harvard continues to increase tuition at well above the rate of inflation, and now adds insult to injury by siphoning millions in taxpayer dollars away from desperate small businesses and workers. I call on Sen. Markey and Rep. Kennedy to join me in insisting Harvard reject these funds so they can help people that actually need assistance to survive and have no other recourse.”
