Bad state policy is affecting our jobs, the services we provide and the communities in which we live. In many instances, the state is abandoning services and cutting jobs, forcing already struggling localities to pick up the slack without any help. For example, cutting state psychiatric services is putting sick people on the streets and sticking local taxpayers with the bill. As mental health facilities close, individuals suffering from mental illness are landing in local jails at local expense and not getting the help they need. Good paying jobs will continue to disappear as the Cuomo administration outsources more and more services for people with developmental disabilities to cheaper, private contractors.
