State Assemblywoman Sandy Galef will kick off a series of town meetings throughout her Assembly District on Thursday, January 19th at the Ossining Public Library, followed on Saturday, January 21st by meetings in Garrison and Peekskill. Annually, Galef invites her constituents to meet with her to discuss issues of state and local concern. The following week, she will hold meetings on Thursday, January 26th at the Hendrick Hudson Free Library in Montrose, then on Saturday, January 28th at the Kent Public Library and Putnam Valley Free Library.
Galef will cover topics such as the new progressive income tax, the property tax cap, mandate relief, organ donation, hydrofracking, ethics reform and discuss her priorities for the 2012 legislative session. “I encourage the community to come out to my meetings to hear about what is going on in New York State, and offer ideas and suggestions for improving the region and New York State as a whole,” Galef said.
There are no snow make-up dates planned. If a town meeting is cancelled in one municipality due to weather, community members are free to attend another town meeting on a different date. If the weather is inclement, call Galef’s district office at (914) 941-1111 or the local library for an update on whether the meeting will proceed as scheduled.
