LOHUD: STATE SEN. BALL COMES TO SOUTHEAST

Posted by: Mike Risinit

State Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, stopped by the Southeast Town Board meeting Thursday night to provide a legislative update from Albany.

“For the first time in a long time, Albany’s moving in the right direction,” he told the board and about 40 people in the audience.

He gave a quick rundown of issues from this year’s legislative session. Those included passing an on-time budget with a 2 percent spending cut and the property tax cap. In addition, he said he plans to continue trying to repeal the MTA payroll tax, reduce unfunded mandates and improve homeland security.

Closed doors denied everyone access to the John Dunford Civic Center auditorium, where the town board sat sequestered in an unscheduled, apparently unannounced executive session.
