Earlier this week Governor Andrew Cuomo unveiled his Executive Budget proposal, marking the official start of the 2017-18 State Budget negotiation process.
As your NYS Senator, I will be working tirelessly throughout the budget process to ensure that the final plan we adopt reflects the key priorities, goals and aspirations of families, senior citizens, young New Yorkers and small business owners throughout our community.
From helping to create new job opportunities, to reducing the tax burden on hardworking New Yorkers, to ensuring that we get our fair share of state school aid, I will be working to ensure that the final budget we enact will be an outstanding budget for our community.
To help keep you well-informed on budget-related developments going forward, I have provided you with a link to the State Budget informational page on my web site. The page allows you to review specific details of the Governor’s proposal, and will also keep you posted on new developments related to the budget review and negotiation process. One of the most important aspects of this page is to allow you to share your thoughts, views and concerns on the budget, and to let me know what issues are important to you, your family, and our local community. As always, I truly appreciate your input and feedback and encourage you to get involved in this process.

I look forward to speaking with and listening to all of my constituents about their needs, concerns and priorities as we review the Governor’s plan and put together a final State Budget.
By working together, I am confident that we can develop and enact a soundly-balanced plan that helps to ensure a bright future for our community.
