This morning, I was privileged to attend Governor Cuomo’s budget message at the Buffalo Convention Center. I am excited about the Governor’s energy toward Buffalo and Western New York and his commitment to bringing $1 billion of economic growth here. I also liked his emphasis on education and I agree that all of us should be lobbyists for students.
As the Chair of the Public Safety Committee, I was happy to hear the Governor will increase funding for a statewide DNA databank. The Governor has set a powerful example of working across both sides of the aisle to get things done and I will follow his example in the Erie County Legislature. As the Governor said, it’s up to us to make change.
