Ritchie invites Central and Northern NY taxpayers to have their say on state budget cuts

State Senator Patty Ritchie is asking her constituents in Oswego, Jefferson and St. Lawrence Counties to offer her guidance as she begins analyzing New York State's proposed budget.

"New York faces some difficult challenges, from an out-of-balance budget caused by years of overspending, to high taxes that threaten our economy, our future, and make life tougher for hardworking families like yours," she said. "We all must work together to get New York government back on track—and get New Yorkers working again. By sharing your ideas and opinions, you can help me make the choices that best serve the interests of our communities.

"As Senator, I want to know what the people of the 48th Senate District are thinking about these important issues. This survey will help guide me in the difficult days ahead."
