Update on March 21, 2013
It is imperative that we keep pressure on Gov. Cuomo and continue to tell him that we will not accept any funding cuts for disability services. The budget negotiations are still on-going. There continues to be a divide between our legislators and the governor in regards to the 6% funding cut to OPWDD services. We have been advised that continuing to call and email the Governor's office is having an impact. THEY ARE KEEPING A COUNT OF EVERY CALL AND EMAIL. YOUR VOICE COUNTS. Please call Gov. Cuomo's office now. the number is 518-474-8390. Choose Option #3 to speak with an assistant. Leave your name and your zip code and let Gov Cuomo know that you oppose these cuts. Our time to speak up for those who cannot always speak for themselves is running out. Please call now.
