Statement From Assemblyman Cliff Crouch

January 11, 2008

“This morning it became apparent the state will be shutting down Camp Pharsalia Correction Facility and Brace Residential Center. Assemblyman Finch, Senator Seward, Senator Libous and I fought hard over the years to keep the Pharsalia Facility open since they are an integral part of our community that provides jobs for many of our local residents. This situation concerns me since the loss of jobs could prove detrimental to the well-being of our families. We need to analyze this decision and explore all of our options.”
