Westchester County Board of Legislators Chairman Ken Jenkins issued the following statement today in response to New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s proposed 2012-2013 Executive Budget:

Government must spend its resources more wisely to ensure a stable economic future, and so I commend the Governor for his hard work and visionary leadership in this regard.”
