Lobby Day: Wake Up Everybody!

Albany, N.Y.-- CSEA members from across the state traveled to Albany on Tuesday, March 5, to remind lawmakers of the value they and their work provide. CSEA members are particularly concerned about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposed state budget, which, while touting flat spending, operational efficiency, consolidation and savings, is really code for “do more with less.”

CSEA members spent the day reminding lawmakers that they add value to their communities every day, and they will not apologize for working to maintain necessary public services.

They also raised concerns about their jobs, and the fact that cutting public sector jobs will only hurt the state’s fragile economic recovery.
