We're all in this together

As you read this news column, local officials, state lawmakers and community leaders are already involved in analyzing Gov. Cuomo’s budget proposals. The Governor and the Legislature must act to balance the state’s precarious finances with the ongoing need for vital government services, all the while recognizing that New Yorkers are already among the highest taxed in the nation, and simply can’t afford to pay more. I haven’t waited for the Governor’s budget to begin the process of gauging how the budget may impact our local communities in Oswego, Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties.
