YOUR VOICES WERE HEARD!

A short time ago, the Board of Legislators voted 10-7 to approve the 2016 County Budget, which the County Executive has signed. JCY-Westchester Community Partners funding was put back into the budget.
 
This is not a perfect budget.  Some of our colleagues were hit hard with cuts that weren't restored, and the ground is shaky for 2017 due to serious revenue concerns.  
 
We want to thank everyone who testified, called, and sent emails or letters in support of JCY-Westchester Community Partners. It is up to us to continue to do our good work, and to speak up for the under-served populations who benefit from our programs. 
 
ADVOCACY does work.  Please keep this example in mind the next time you hear someone say that speaking up on an issue is a waste of time.
