    Governor Andrew Cuomo

    “We are pleased that The Executive Budget introduced by Governor Cuomo today continues along the fiscally responsible path initiated last year.  We are hopeful that the policies put in place will launch major job creating projects here in Westchester and across the state. We agree with Governor Cuomo that it takes a strong private sector to ensure a secure future for New York State.


    The pension reform and mandate relief proposed in the budget will help local governments like those here in Westchester control costs and balance budgets. This is the right relief at the right time for the people of Westchester.


    Over the coming days, we will continue to review the details of the budget and issue additional comments on key components that will be beneficial to the businesses and taxpayers of Westchester County.  We look forward to working with the governor and legislators and thank the Governor for his leadership.”
