Danny Wegman weighs in on Photonics Institute controversy

He says he has always supported the Sibley Building as the location.

Rochester, NY - Danny Wegman said today he has always supported the Sibley Building as the location for the photonics headquarters.  Last week, the Rochester Business Alliance sent out a public statement saying the headquarters should be at Legacy Tower.

The Rochester Business Alliance said the statement came from several CEO's including Wegman.

"First of all, it looked like I sold my friend Joel down the river and had another point of view," said Wegman.  "That was not true and there was never any group that made these decisions."

The fight over the headquarters building was later revealed to be a tug of war between SUNY Polytechnic, which backed Legacy, and the University of Rochester, which backs Sibley.

The two colleges now say they will work together on the project.
