For the first time in a long time, the Albany bureaucrats listened and New York has an on-time State Budget. The enacted spending plan was far from perfect it involved tough, painful choices that began a long overdue process of reforming Albanys tax-and-spend culture.
However, the important work of fixing state government and changing how Albany does the peoples business is far from finished. State government has miles to go before we can truly say New York is back on track and headed in the right direction.
We still have the second-highest combined state and local tax burden in the nation. Our homeowners still pay the highest property taxes in America. Nearly 800,000 New Yorkers are still unemployed. State government is still too big, too costly, and too bureaucratic. Bottom line? There is still much work that needs to be done.
Do you want to keep New York State moving in the right direction?
If your answer to that question is Yes! then please join me and Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb at a Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, September 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Town of LeRay Municipal Office, 8650 LeRay Street in Evans Mills. We will be having an important conversation about the Peoples Convention to Reform New York, a non-partisan grassroots reform effort that will benefit taxpayers like you.
Seating is limited, so RSVP for this Town Hall meeting today by calling Kathleen Lisson in the Assembly Minority Office of Public Affairs at (518) 455-5073. Then visit www.reformny.org to join nearly 2,500 New Yorkers who support a Peoples Convention.
