Andrew Ryan of the Boston Globe investigates the college degree records of incumbent State Senator Anthony Petruccelli (Democrat), finding he does not have a degree from the University of Rochester as previously listed on his website.
“Petruccelli, 38, attended the college from 1991-1995, but records show he did not graduate and “does not have a degree from the University of Rochester,’’ according to school spokeswoman Sharon A. Dickman.”
The reporter also investigated the seven college and graduate degrees listed on Republican challenger, Frank Addivinola Jr.’s website.
“All seven of Addivinola’s degrees were verified, but the one listed as “ALM in Biology, Harvard University’’ is not entirely clear.”
Since the degree was from Harvard Extension School, the school “now urges new graduates to include “extension studies’’ in the description” to distinguish degress received from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
