ALBANY, 05/26/10 – State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I-Oneonta) today joined several senate colleagues in calling for the immediate resignation of New York State Office of Children and Family Services Commissioner Gladys Carrion for sanctioning a state-taxpayer funded sex-party at a youth facility that houses killers and other violent criminals.
As New York continues to deal with an unprecedented fiscal crisis, every dollar expended by the state should come under careful scrutiny. We must ensure funds are being spent wisely for needed programs that are widely beneficial. It is also vital that we examine the policymakers, and make certain they are of superior character as well. Case in point – New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) Commissioner Gladys Carrion.
