Statement from Majority Leader Catherine Borgia (D-Ossining) on County Executive Astorino’s 2018 Westchester County Budget

(WHITE PLAINS, NY) “From the self-imposed fiscal crisis the Astorino Administration has left us in to the inclusion of irresponsible revenue sources in this budget - it is clear we have some real work to do on behalf of the people of Westchester County. The attempted use of $30 million of revenues reserved for the airport is bad budgeting, fiscally reckless, and exactly what the voters made clear they were fed up with. Our budget must reflect the fiscal priorities we hold as a County including keeping taxes in check while providing the essential services taxpayers are longing for, negotiating in good faith with our unions, putting our environment before corporations while also create a business-friendly climate, and looking out for Westchester’s working families. We Democrats at the Board are eager to get to work with all of colleagues as well as County Executive-Elect Latimer to fight for these values.”
