Susan Rowley, President, Lake Erie Chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of New York; Kevin Hanna, Director of External Affairs, AT&T; and Senator Young with a sample of the mobile devices that were collected through the cell phone drive.

OLEAN – Residents of the Southern Tier and Livingston County stepped forward to help soldiers in need during the holiday season.

Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I- 57th District), AT&T and the Lake Erie Chapter of the Blue Star Mothers of New York announced today that area residents donated more than 300 used mobile devices to Cell Phones For Soldiers.

"The GEA represented the worst of Albany, robbing Upstate schools of funding they deserved simply to help politicians plug a budget gap of their own making. It was wrong, it cost districts in Monroe and Ontario counties over $120 million, and it hurt students and teachers in the classroom in the process. Last year we dealt a blow to the GEA by cutting it in half and this year the Senate will take the lead on finishing the job.

New York – State Senator Liz Krueger released the following statement today in reaction to the decision by a State Supreme Court judge to dismiss an Article 78 case brought by Stahl York Avenue LLC against the City of New York and the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
