Financial, Leadership Crises Leave New Yorkers In The Dark

November 10, 2009

“New York is currently faced with serious financial and leadership crises, and I don’t know which is worse. Something needs to be done immediately, as the Albany charade of supposedly representing the people can no longer hide behind the shroud of secret dealings and closed door negotiations.

To spend thousands of dollars bringing 212 legislators back to Albany while accomplishing nothing is a travesty. The governor plans on cutting funding for schools and social services, and revenues are down, yet millions of dollars are being used for capital projects. Why not suspend capital projects to help get us out of this budget crisis instead of raising taxes and allowing New York to fall deeper into debt?

The people of New York need to rise up and demand action from their legislators, because something needs to be done immediately.”
