Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer was a fan of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address delivered Wednesday.
In a statement released Thursday, Schaffer said his fellow Democrat's address contained several initiatives that would strengthen the Town of Babylon.
Here is Schaffer's full statement:
"The plan laid out in Governor Cuomo's State of the State address is an exciting one for Babylon Township. Growing the economy continues to be one of my highest priorities, and the Governor's tax relief package - which proposes more than $2 billion in tax cuts, credits, and reforms - will go a long way to saving our residents money, growing our local businesses and ultimately creating jobs. On top of this responsible fiscal reform, the Governor has proposed a variety of measures to strengthen our infrastructure in the face of extreme weather, bring our schools to the cutting edge with technology and high-quality educators, and protect women's rights throughout society. All of these are items that will benefit the Babylon community, and I commend the Governor for his proactive approach to creating a safer, stronger, and more fair New York."
