State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele, Jr. (I-D-WF-Sag Harbor) has announced that with the completion of the 2011 State Budget, he will give an “Albany Update” to his constituents during the Legislative Easter/Passover Recess on April 20, 2011 at the Community Room of the Rogers Memorial Library at 7:30 pm.
Thiele stated, “With the completion of only the 3rd on-time State Budget in 28 years, I want to use the holiday recess to report to my constituents on the local impact of the final state spending plan. This budget reduces state spending by 2.2%. I have invited local government representatives, school officials, community leaders, as well as the public at large to learn about how recent decisions in Albany will affect them. In addition, there remain many critical issues pending in Albany that will have important impacts locally, including Governor Cuomo’s proposed property tax cap, ethics reform, campaign finance reform, as well as local issues like the future of Southampton College, the safety of the Millstone Nuclear Power Plant, and rehabilitation of Montauk Highway. This forum will provide me with an opportunity to exchange information with the public before these important issues are addressed in the State Capitol.”
