Ranzenhofer schedules State Budget Forum in Amherst
Encourages residents to let their voice be heard on the 2014-2015 State Budget
Amherst, NY– State Senator Michael H. Ranzenhofer will hold a State Budget Forum at Lecture Hall 100 at Erie Community College’s Kittinger Hall on Saturday, March 8th from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
Senator Ranzenhofer’s State Budget Forum is an opportunity for residents to let their voice be heard on the 2014-2015 State Budget in the State Capitol.
“Since the Governor released his Executive Budget proposal, I have been working with my colleagues in the State Senate and State Assembly to scrutinize and review all aspects of the plan. I want to hear residents’ thoughts on the budget plan, too– so that I can share their views with my colleagues,” said Ranzenhofer. ”That is why I hope that residents will join me this Saturday to hear an update on the State Budget, and participate in a discussion and question-and-answer session on important issues impacting our community.”
Senator Ranzenhofer’s State Budget Forum marks the second opportunity for residents to express their views with their representative in State government, after hosting a Town Hall telephone conference live from the State Capitol with thousands of constituents on February 26.
Senator Ranzenhofer encourages residents to get the facts on the 2014-2015 Executive Budget proposal by visiting ranzenhofer.nysenate.gov.
“In an effort to keep residents informed, I have added a new Budget Information Page at my website. It allows residents to review specific details of the Executive Budget, stay up-to-date on new developments, and share your input on the budget plan. By working together, I am hopeful that a balanced budget plan can be developed in a timely manner to help New York State move in the right direction,” said Ranzenhofer.
Residents not able to attend the State Budget Forum can still share their input on the State Budget with Senator Ranzenhofer by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting the district office at (716) 631-8695.
