Coming Up: Latimer and Paulin Invite You to Testify on State Budget



New Rochelle City Hall

It may not be romantic, but two area State Representatives will open the floor–for four hours– to Westchester residents wishing to speak out on the proposed 2012-2013 New York State Budget.


The Community Meeting will be held on Thursday, February 16th in the Council Chamber at New Rochelle City Hall, 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. sponsored by Assemblyman George Latimer and Assemblywoman Amy Paulin.

Attendees may testify for up to four (4) minutes on any aspect of the State budget proposal; written testimony will also be accepted at the meeting and over the ensuing week (until Friday, February 24th). The Governor’s proposed budget totals over $130 billion; budget highlights may be viewed on the Assembly website at

No appointment is required; speakers will be heard on a first-come, first-served basis, with a few exceptions made for unique circumstances. Latimer and Paulin will be holding the meeting open for four continuous hours to accommodate those who attend.

Testimony received will be provided to the Assembly Ways and Means Committee for inclusion in their budget review.  For further information, contact Assemblyman Latimer at 777-3832, or Assemblywoman Paulin at 723-1115.
