Even if you don't live in Westchester,please call.    Note that our County Exec is a true fiscal conservative who has stopped the ANNUAL tax increases imposed by his totalitarian sell-aggranidizing predecessor.  
Westchester County, thanks to Rob Astorinio/'s fiscal responsibility, still has a AAA credit rating.  Demoncrap tax and waste-aholics will destroy that as they have destroyed the nations.

Dear Friend,  
Get ready to make a phone call or send a quick email to the Democratic leadership of the County Board of Legislators IMMEDIATELY after reading this email.
After submitting a proposed budget that maintains essential services, protects our AAA credit rating, and keeps taxes flat for the THIRD year in a row, the Democratic leadership is playing a dangerous game. Their additions and deletions to my budget put both vital services and the financial health of the county in danger.
The Democratic leadership has scheduled a vote TODAY on a proposed a budget that will:
  • Drain $11 million from the county's reserves, despite the fact that bond rating agencies have consistently told us that it will jeopardize our rating, therefore making it more expensive to borrow for important infrastructure projects;
  • Short-change Medicaid by $4.1 million;
  • Eliminate two deputy commissioners of in the Department of Social Services, which is not only the largest department, but serves those in our county who need help the most;
  • Cut $900,000 in funding to the county's paratransit program, which runs alternative transit services for the disabled;
  • Remove $1.7 million in salaries for the Department of Correction, which will lead to increased costs in overtime;
  • Under fund by $1 million the expenses relating to tax certioraris (court-order tax refunds);
  • Overstate revenues by about $2 million for such things as parks, mortgage tax and civil service exams.
I am asking for a coalition of Republicans and like-minded Democrats to reject this IRRESPONSIBLE budget proposal and work with me to approve a budget that's in the best interest of Westchester residents.
But they need to hear from YOU.
Please email or call[masked] to tell the Board of Legislators that you want a responsible budget that works for the taxpayers and people of Westchester.
Rob Astorino
