In an effort to more effectively advocate for the needs and concerns of their constituents, the five New York senators representing Westchester County will convene a public hearing to assess the priorities and impacts of Governor Paterson’s proposed SFY 2010-2011 budget on the residents, communities, organizations and elected officials of Westchester.  Senator Suzi Oppenheimer chairs the Westchester Senate delegation, which includes Senators Ruth Hassell-Thompson, Jeff Klein, Vincent Leibell, and Andrea Stewart-Cousins.


The hearing will be held on Friday, March 19, 2010, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Greenburgh Town Hall, 177 Hillside Avenue, Greenburgh, NY.

“Given the tough economic times our State continues to face, your input on key matters affecting our region is more vital than ever,” said Senator Oppenheimer.  “I urge you to attend the March 19 hearing to make your voice heard and to help us protect and preserve all that we value most in Westchester County.”
