Senator Aubertine to Hold Forum

Sen. Aubertine to Meet with School Superintendents,
Business & Economic Development Leaders

WATERTOWN (February 17, 2010)—State Sen. Darrel J. Aubertine today announced a pair of forums to be hosted at Jefferson Community College as a means to incorporate local voices into the deliberations on the 2010-11 State Budget.

“There is no shortage of difficult decisions to be made in this year’s budget,” Sen. Aubertine said. “That’s why it is critical we continue to have an open dialogue locally. The issues, concerns and, most importantly, the ideas gathered in these forums will be used by me and the New York State Senate to ensure that we address our budget crisis while also meeting the needs of our children and job creation.”

On Thursday, the Senator will meet with school officials from throughout the 48th Senate District from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in JCC’s Jules Center Room 6-218.

On Friday, Sen. Aubertine will be joined by Sen. William T. Stachowski, chair of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business, for a roundtable discussion with businesses and economic development officials throughout the region from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., also in JCC’s Jules Center Room 6-218. Similar forums will be held tomorrow morning in Buffalo and Friday morning in Syracuse.

“The most pressing need for our state is job creation and job retention, especially Upstate, where despite decades of decline new opportunities are on the horizon,” said Sen. Aubertine, chair of the Senate Upstate Caucus. “By bringing the economic development and business communities together now, their input will be used to shape policy and a budget that promotes jobs and economic growth, while also laying the foundation for a sustainable, long-term recovery.”
