STATEMENT FROM ULSTER COUNTY EXECUTIVE MIKE HEIN

Posted March 15, 2012

 

For too many years, skyrocketing pension costs have taken money away from vital services to New Yorkers, including our schools and police departments. The Governor's sweeping pension overhaul finally addresses these rising costs and puts in place much needed measures to help local governments. Governor Cuomo has shown true leadership on this issue, defying political gridlock and working together with the legislature to put the people before the special interests."
