Senator Huntley fights against cuts to Blind and Deaf Schools (4201 School’s)
(D-Jamaica) Senator Shirley L. Huntley and her senate colleagues were able to successfully restore budget cuts to 4201 schools that serve blind and deaf students.

Senator Huntley has supported the hardworking efforts of DC 37 and the millions of middle to working class people who are a part of the group. DC 37 spoke with Senator Huntley about legislation and other pending bills that would be very controversial or have their football spirit.
