I work with this population every day. I do have two kids that some kid of special needs that don't get any service at all plus I have a cousin that have MR as well and he live up in Buffalo with his mom and we stay in contact all the time. I will tell you right now, that if you cut the service for this population shame on you. If you never been with this population at all just go to a Day treatment programs and just see what they can do. After you are there you my think twice of cutting...

This population can not be without the service at all. I think that the Governor Cuomo should visit the programs and think see how they are being ruined.

The only ones who should take a "cut" is the government Please don't get me started.

Obviously he does not understand the everyday struggles and hardship disabled individuals endure. I am a single mom with a disabled child. Why must a individual be exposed to understand and care about someone's hardship. Get off your high horse and spend one day at a school such as Prospect and learn how much of an impact a few dollars has on helping make these individuals lives easier.

These children need their services. The schools have IEP meetings they say a child needs this, this, and this..and there a no funds..... what is the sense for special education if you keep cutting funds. These kids need their services , their aides, resource, busing to special classes.. Without $ these kids ARE NOT GOING TO GET THE SERVI ES NEED.... QUITE hitting education with cuts..... these are our future leaders, teachers, lawyers, doctors and nurses.... moms, dads, cashiers, cooks,...

I can see drop outs is going to raise....teachers are going to be unemployed, graduates are going to have no jobs . Its a shame what is NY state doing.... I thought Cuomo would be good for governor as his father put the kids first. Boy did he prove me wrong... give up your salary, let the kids get what they need...

I have a visual impairment. I am glad to sign the petition, even though I live in Indiana. New York's disabled citizens need these services. Gov. Cuomo, do not cut their services.

I can think of alot of other places they can make cuts, then from these poor people. You can go in some stores and see them trying to hold down part time jobs.They don't ask for to much and are greatfull for what they have.Governor Cuomo can ask me I will give him a couple of Places to start looking at. Oh lets see Welfare could be a good start.
