LiveOn NY’s 21st CITY HALL ADVOCACY DAY IS A HUGE SUCCESS
BECAUSE OF EACH ONE OF YOU PARTICIPATING!
OVER 350 OLDER ADULTS AND STAFF FROM 130 SENIOR CENTERS, NORCs, AND
CASE MANAGEMENT AGENCIES MET WITH 45 COUNCILMEMBER OFFICES – AMAZING!
IT’S IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN CONTACT WITH YOUR COUNCILMEMBERS
WITH THE MESSAGE – “DON’T FORGET FUNDING FOR SENIORS!”
What is happening:
- We are hearing that the city budget will done by around June 6th, two weeks earlier than usual. This makes it really important that seniors call their Councilmember immediately. Calls should be made to the 250 Broadway office because that’s where the Councilmember and their budget staff are during the budget process
- Click here to see the attached handout on the budget. You will see some changes. When the budget gets down to the wire, it’s necessary to narrow down priorities. We also included the 3 special initiatives as your agencies depend upon this funding for core programs.
What you can do to make a difference: Please ask seniors, staff and board members to call your Councilmember offices as soon as possible. Click here to find the phone number of your Councilmember.
The message is:
“DON’T FORGET FUNDING FOR SENIORS!”
"No olvides fondos para la personas de la tercera edad!"
