New York State is facing a multi-billion dollar deficit. Families are making hard choices as they cut back during tough economic times. Certainly the last thing we should be doing is funding questionable organizations. That’s why I am joining the growing call to freeze all state funds slated to go to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), its sister organization, the New York Agency for Community Affairs (NYACA) and any other organizations that use state funds to contract with ACORN.
