KATZ: MEDICAL MARIJUANA COMPROMISE
A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
A statement from Assemblyman Steve Katz (R,C,I - Yorktown)
 
            I'm glad we were able to seize the national momentum with the dedicated activists who descended on the Capitol for this final push for the Compassionate Care Act. This should not have had to wait another year.  Many people can benefit from cannabinoid treatments, and those afflicted deserve the benefit to be treated with all necessary and available remedies. I am proud to have been a part of this effort to modernize our state's medical treatments, and I look forward to continuing to raise awareness and perfect our state's medical marijuana laws.

Cuomo's Albany Fails to Address Major Issues
Cuomo's Albany Fails to Address Major Issues
 
Script:
 
And so another legislative session in Albany is ending, without a thing being done to turn this state around.

For struggling New Yorkers there was nothing. Zero. Zilch.

We have the highest property taxes in America because of Albany's unfunded mandates, yet there was no mandate relief.

We have the worst economic outlook in America, yet nothing was done to grow the economy;

We have the second highest electric rates in America, but natural gas beneath our feet remains untapped.  

We have an insanely high gas tax. Too bad for you, they say.  

Cities like Syracuse and localities statewide are buckling under the pressure of passalong costs from Medicaid and pension benefits.  No relief there.  

So what was Albany working on?

Lowering the speed limit in a traffic-choked city where you're lucky to go 5-miles-an-hour; a debate over whether to kill a couple hundred Mute Swans -- I'm not sure where that one ended up -- and passing new regulations on "light pollution," whatever that is.

Now, these may all be very good bills, but where are the priorities? Where is the real help you promised, Mr. Cuomo?

New York is systematically losing to every other state in this country and we're talking about Mute Swans.

That's Andrew Cuomo's Albany.

We can do better than this, New Yorkers. When I get to Albany, it's the urgent priorities, the real priorities, that will come first.

Nothing will happen in Albany, until we get tax relief, job growth, energy production, Common Core repeal, term limits, and ethics reform.

All else will have to wait.

And if the mute swans could talk, I'm sure they, especially would agree.

Supervisor's Update- June 20th, 2014

I would like to take a moment to thank all of the people involved in moving our great Town forward: from the staff who take pride in their jobs, to the department heads who work with their employees to ensure our residents get the services they need and deserve from their local government, the result is a high level of customer service and responsiveness. We pride ourselves on our transparency and our goal is to serve our residents the best we can, making what can sometimes be complicated processes as clear as we can and answering any questions to the best of our ability, whether they’re selling a home or starting a business.


The Town of Ossining takes its responsibility very seriously when it comes to making sure we protect the interests of all of the taxpayers of Ossining. We believe that it is our responsibility to reduce the liability of the taxpayers whenever possible- this is not politically motivated, but rather, in the interest of fairness to all of our residents and protecting them from needless risk.
Town Hall Meeting
July 15th, 2014
Ossining Library
7:30 PM
Agenda: Presentation and discussion on the RFP for Police Services
RFP for Police Services for the Unincorporated Area of the Town of Ossining

3 ½ years ago, the Town of Ossining determined that it was in the best interest of the taxpayers of the Unincorporated Area to consolidate their Police department. Westchester County Department of Public Safety was chosen and we have not received any complaints about the services. To the contrary, we have gotten compliments on response times and the attentiveness of officers to Town concerns. Since this was a four year contract, we decided that we should release an Request For Proposal (RFP) for the next contract- it was hand delivered to our two Villages (Ossining and Briarcliff Manor), and was also delivered to Westchester County. The RFP was advertised as required and several security companies have picked up the RFP, but one of our requirements is that only established police departments may submit a proposal.


The RFPs are due back NO later than June 30th, 2014, at which time they will be reviewed by the Board. We will post these returned RFPs on the web page and they will be available in hard copy at the Town Clerk’s office (first floor of 16 Croton Ave.), and our July 15th, 2014 Town Hall Meeting will have this item on as its major agenda item. We want to hear from the residents of the Unincorporated Area after we do a presentation of what each department has proposed to perform our required services, and at what cost. We know this time of year finds many of you away on vacation, so I encourage residents to email me at sdonnelly@townofossining.com with opinions and comments concerning this matter (or any other!) The entire Board looks forward to hearing you weigh in on this issue as we evaluate the proposals.
Dale Cemetery
Our commitment to all the families with relatives in Dale Cemetery, as well as to those who may wish to purchase plots in the future, is to bring the cemetery back to the beautiful memorial park Ossining deserves. Dale Cemetery has been running self-sufficiently for the past 4 years, in large part due to multiple plot purchases by Chinese community groups- the hillside facing south with a stream at the bottom fit their requirements perfectly, and several hundred plots were pre-sold in areas that been appropriately scouted and landscaped for their purposes. These funds have been sufficient to keep the cemetery running up until now, but there will not be enough to continue running self-sufficiently beyond the 2014 budget.
We have the utmost respect for the site and want to make sure it receives the care it deserves. We owe a speedy effort to our residents with buried relatives and friends, as well as our taxpayers, and so it is essential that the Town Board act quickly and responsibly to secure funding to improve the quality of Dale and continue operations. This sensitive subject must be dealt with in the businesslike manner to accomplish these goals. At our Town Board Work Session this past Tuesday, we met with representatives from the Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn/ Queens to discuss a possible partnership. Widely recognized as being a success story in turning around troubled cemeteries and managing them to realize enough income to create perpetual care funds, their track record shows a lot of promise and we’ve asked them to do some research on how they can help the Town do better. The Town is not in the cemetery business- it may be prudent for us to enter into a partnership with an organization that is, and that has been so successful in making cemeteries solvent. We are also investigating other alternatives to the current system of the not-for-profit company that has been running the Dale for the past 10 years. This is not a question of the Town not supporting Dale Cemetery, but rather of making this “department” of the Town be responsible for its spending, just like any other.

507 North State Road
The time has come to pay the bonds we are permitted to repay! We have completed the 2013 audit process, and our Unincorporated Fund Balance has increased by $220,592 (see page 63 of the audit report), which we will be using to pay off the remainder bonds that are “callable” for 507 North State Road (the old Town Police Station) that were not covered by the building’s sale of $1,475,000.
Town of Ossining 2013 AUDIT
Also at our Work Session on June 17th, 2014, Rob Daniele from the firm of O’Connor Davies came in to review the results of the Town's 2013 audit with the Town Board. He reviewed the three largest funds, including the Town General (10), Unincorporated (Town Outside Villages) Fund 20, and the Highway Fund. He reported that the Town of Ossining and all of our funds are in good shape and that we should continue with our conservative and business-like approach to government.

Foreclosure Auction

On August 13th, 2014 we will be auctioning off three properties:
  1. 94 State Street
  2. Priestley Street, Lots 4 & 5
  3. Thornton Hill Lots (a 10-lot subdivision)
The bid packages for these properties will be available by the end of next week , which will contain pictures and descriptions of the properties and will announce the opening bids on each property. Please contact the Tax Receiver’s Office for more information at:
Phone (914) 762-8790
Fax (914) 762-0635
taxreceiver@townofossining.com
The Town has no interest in entering the real estate business (which would be the likely conclusion if we did not move forward to auction these properties or find some other solution), so there are several properties that the owner of record (sometimes a bank, but also the family themselves) asked for an extension to sell the property in order to pay the taxes (plus penalties, interest and other fines). We have granted these extensions to these property owners, under the following conditions: the property must be listed with a real estate agent, it must be readily available for inspection, and the property must have a signed contract by September 1st, 2014.
Should any of these properties not comply with the above, we are prepared to hold another auction in November 2014.
 
Projects going on in the Town of Ossining

PARKS
John Chervokas Spray Park at Louis Engel Park should be ready to go VERY soon. There was quite a bit of work to do on the floor of the Park, and we discovered some work that needed to be done to the plumbing as well. Watch for a special announcement as to the opening of the Spray Park for the 2014 season!
We are making progress on the design for the water recycling system at the Spray Park- the engineering contract is signed, and once the design is ready, we’ll go out to bid. Between the planning, the bid process, and Department of Health approvals, we will not have this done for 2014. The plan is to get all the paperwork done and award the project by September 2014, have the work done in the fall, and have a grand opening in spring of 2015.
Why this project?:
Environmentally smarter to recycle water, as opposed to the “spray and dump” method we currently use.
We anticipate an annual savings upwards of $20,000 due to the reduced volume of water necessary to operate the Spray Park, with a return on investment (ROI) to be less than 5 years based on our projected costs. We will have a comprehensive ROI after we go out to bid and have accepted a proposal for the project.
We can keep the Spray Park open for longer hours due to the reduced cost of the water.
State Senator Carlucci won us a grant for $100,000 to get moving on this project, which will account for about half of the total expense!
The stage at Louis Engel Park is just about done. While we won’t use it for the first concert on July 3rd on the evening of the fireworks, it will be ready for all of the Friday night concerts this summer. We are in the process of setting up food vendors for these concerts, so keep an eye out for another poster to pop up all over Town!
The playground equipment sets for Ryder and Buck Johnson Parks have been ordered, and we are awaiting their arrival. Get ready for an exciting summer of grand openings in the Town of Ossining.


INFRASTRUCTURE
The “Old Albany Post Road Dead End” project is moving along. This major project will result in an improved and stable road that will be able to withstand storms and will provide a safer means of access for residents. In addition to the new road, included in the project are retaining walls to prevent any further erosion.
Our “Cedar Lane Drainage” capital project is finishing up with a few final tweaks. We have been watching the area through this rainy season for any issues and are glad to report that there have been any problems.
The Highway Department is keeping up with maintenance of storm drains and catch basins, as well as fixing potholes. They also continue to assist the Parks Department with the repair of crushed pipes and walkway resurfacing.
The Lakeville lift station system upgrade project will enhance the efficiency of the gravity system and reduce the ongoing maintenance to the station. After a competitive bidding process, the project has been awarded to ELQ, and will be paid for out of the Sewer Fund Balance. We are committed to solving these infrastructure problems quickly and with as little expense as necessary, helping to improve the quality of life in the Town of Ossining.


REVAL
The Town-wide revaluation is moving forward as the exterior and interior inspections get into full swing. Keep an eye on your mailbox for the pamphlets letting you know when Tyler will be in your neighborhood. Information sessions are still going on- please get in touch with the Assessor’s Office if you’d like to schedule one for your organization!

TV Special with Assemblywoman Galef Covers Property Tax Freeze Forum

Show Highlights Strategies for Continued Budget Savings

(June 23, 2014) Assemblywoman Sandy Galef hosted a forum on May 29th that
discussed strategies for continued budget savings through sharing and
coordination of services. The 2014 NYS budget included a two year promise of
state funded rebates to property taxpayers if local governments and school
districts remained within the property tax cap year. Year two of the two
year program adds a condition for governments and schools, not only must
they stay within the cap, but also they need to identify savings from
efficiencies or shared services equal to at least 1% of their tax levy for
three consecutive years.



The forum was intended to help governments, schools, and libraries for whom
this rebate applies, to learn new strategies. "We need to find additional
ways to help our local taxing jurisdictions to stay within their cap and
produce savings moving forward so that taxpayers can continue to benefit
from this new state program.  Hopefully the forum will educate individuals
on ways to work with their local officials to approach business differently
than they have in the past," Galef said.



At the forum, Deputy Secretary of State for Local Government Dede
Scozzafava, as well as the New York State Department of State Director of
Local Government Services Mark Pattison, and Land Use Training Specialist
Carl Ublacker spoke about what they have seen around the state that is

Will Sean Patrick Maloney Help Taxpayers
or Help the Administration?
Maloney Can Either Protect Taxpayers From Being Targeted By the IRS or Help the Administration Cover Up Another Scandal

WASHINGTON
– Today, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold a hearing with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen. He will testify before the panel about the recent scandal involving the IRS losing numerous emails from Lois Lerner’s computer due to a “hard drive crash.”
 
Sean Patrick Maloney has an opportunity to make sure that taxpayers will not be wrongfully targeted by the IRS in the future by holding the Administration accountable and condemning those responsible for this scandal. Unfortunately, Maloney's refusal to comment on this atrocious matter proves that he is out of touch with his constituents and is helping the Administration cover up a scandal in hopes of political support this election cycle.
 
“It is completely inexcusable for the IRS to know of Lois Lerner’s missing emails and just now inform Congress,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Instead of protecting New York taxpayers from being wrongfully targeted by the IRS, Sean Patrick Maloney is joining his Democrat allies in helping the Obama Administration cover up another scandal.”
 
House committee calls on IRS Commissioner to testify before panel about Lois Lerner’s “missing” emails.

Legislator Borgia Commends Affordable Housing at Ribbon Cutting in Briarcliff Manor

 

Briarcliff Manor, NY – Westchester County Board of Legislators (BOL) Majority Leader Catherine Borgia (D-Ossining) commended the official opening this morning of the new Comstock Heights building development here, with sixteen new townhouse style condominiums that have been marketed as affirmatively fair and affordable housing. The ribbon cutting ceremony today marks the fruition of collaborative efforts by the builders, 445 North State Road Partners LLC and Comstock Contracting, Westchester’s Housing Action Council and the Village of Briarcliff Manor.

 

Situated in part of a former office park on North State Road, Comstock Heights has residential units, which include two bedrooms and two and a half baths, plus some commercial spaces that face the street. Several of the condo units have already been occupied by residents,

 

“These beautiful new residences prove, once again, that Westchester knows how to build and market affordable housing,” said Borgia, who, as chair of the BOL Government Operations Committee in 2012-2013 helped move the Comstock Heights project through on the County level. “Working with all of our partners, building and opening affordable housing complexes like Comstock Heights helps ensure that our seniors, veterans and young professionals can find affordable places to live in the county.”

The Comstock Heights development was built by Eric Abraham of Comstock Contracting at no cost to the Village of Briarcliff Manor. The sixteen units will count toward the housing settlement between the County and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which requires the County to build 750 fair and affordable units of housing across 31 communities, including Briarcliff Manor, by 2016. Individuals and families with income in the 80 percent or below
area median income (AMI) range for Westchester County are eligible to apply for the units.

 

Housing Action Council Executive Director Rose Noonan hosted the ribbon cutting event, and joining Majority Leader Borgia were HUD Regional Director Holly Leicht, New York State Office of Community Renewal President Matthew Nelson, County Department of Planning Deputy Commissioner Norma Drummond and Briarcliff Manor Mayor William Vesio.

 

“Congratulations to Eric Abraham and his colleagues for envisioning this development here and putting Comstock Heights on the map,” said Borgia. “Building affordable housing actually protects our taxpayers and communities while creating good jobs. Perhaps that’s why everybody at the ribbon cutting today looks so happy.”

Citizens for an Informed Yorktown
Town Board Special Meeting
June 18, 2014

The major portion of the meeting was devoted to a discussion of the Spectra/Granite Knolls parkland alienation home rule message.

For a summary of the other items discussed and voted on at the meeting, including a proposed bond issue, the special election law, and a legal settlement with two town employees, see the full summary at ciyinfo.org.

With only Supervisor Grace and Councilman Murphy voting for the necessary Senate home rule message, the resolution failed to pass and the alienation request is now dead.  Both Councilmen Bianco and Patel voted no because of the uncertain environmental impacts from the “pigs” used to clean up the pipeline. In a follow up 3-1 vote, with Councilman Patel voting no, the board agreed to begin the SEQRA environmental review process for the town to begin to create the sports complex on its own, although Councilman Bianco said he was not giving the supervisor a blank check to proceed with the project.

R.O.I. By Frank J. Rich
It's Personal 


 
A recent study boldly pronounced that returns from advertising in print outperform returns from digital media advertising. (GfK Starch Syndicated Research). Analysts at Starch studied consumer engagement with 500,000 print ads during the first quarter of 2014. Though the study focused on magazine titles, the findings logically extend to all forms of print advertising across many more product categories than the study's 285.  
 
Fifty-two percent of readers contacted remembered seeing various magazine ads, and 62 percent of them took some sort of action-purchase, recommendations to others, a visit to the advertiser's website, social media site, or a QR code launch. As a whole, 35 percent of readers took some action on the print ads, up from 33 percent in 2010.
Coincidentally, another study, of alumni magazine readership (The Virginia Tech survey) was prepared to determine whether the print or digital version of their alumni magazine was more effective in communicating with alums.
 
Similarly, more respondents remembered receiving the printed magazine (82%) than the email invitation to the online version (49%). "The lower rate of recall for the online version may speak to the number of consumers who feel overwhelmed by the volume of email coming at them. These alums also expressed a preference for the printed magazine," as follows:
  • Print 63%
  • Online 26%
  • Either/both 4%
The print version had a higher viewing rate (77%) among alums, and who also recalled more articles, in general and specifically, than did the viewers of the online publications. Both older and younger alums showed the greatest recall for print articles
 
Did you catch this: "The lower rate of recall for the online version may speak to the number of consumers who feel overwhelmed by the volume of email coming at them." Fully, better than 50 percent of conversions from advertising to product occur by print. When direct mail is added, the number goes above 70 percent. Keep in mind that roughly 90 percent of all coupons are delivered in a printed insert, and virtually all product coupons for food get used by someone.
 
In this age of "digital everything" the question looms as to why print raises its forlorn head above the swarming digital sea around it. The answer is more available than tasty. We have been so inculcated with the Internet and its "use model" that we have turned a deaf ear to the hard reality: Internet sales are a meager 5.9 percent of retail sales, and growing slowly. It has taken sevenplus years to go from 2 percent to its current level of 5.9. What's going on?
Simply, people respond to "all things" by their nature, which is an analog behavioral model. We form our thoughts and behavior through our senses. Our sense of smell is even more responsible for our choice of mates than any other sense or thing we do.
 
In his efforts to look at the underneath of things, Malcolm Gladwell uncovered a fundamental principle while researching his book, The Tipping Point. In simple terms, it's a book about social trending and how it occurs. At the root of it is the sense that epidemics (of a sort) obtain from the natural ways of the human condition. Uncovered, we see the fundamentals of every social and market system. The three greatest influencers in this model are liaisons, experts, and transactors; or what Gladwell calls "connectors," "mavens," and "salesman."
 
The liaison makes connections to others; he collects people, then brings them together for purposes either defined by them or by others. Social media is a digital mechanism for doing much the same thing, but without people before and after social media, nothing would happen.
 
Experts are knowledge fonts. Whether of critical value or not, they are the keepers of it and the ones other rely on to help them satisfy their goals. They know what's new, how things are made, and how to get things done. These gurus are in high demand and they perform a vital function in both societal and commercial arenas. Internet blog posts are fat with them.They confirm the rightness of things.
 
Transactors are the people who drive us to the knowledge or use of the things we use, eat, and do. They are the salesman who deliver the cogency in the message, the trial use, the analog examples that bring us closer to what's in the bag, and the deals that compel us to act now rather than later. And they are vital to the mix. Email is full of the enticements that encourage shopping.
 
All people, these vital cogs in our socio-economic fabric are what make things happen, even bad things like the wave of copycat school shootings that have swept the nation in the past 10 years, or the view that butter is bad (check this week's Time Magazine cover story). And it is precisely because people relate best to people that we are beginning to discover that:
  • Too many choices lead to blindness, where no choice can be made.
  • Too much information or attention from others causes immunity to information and its deliverers.
  • The super convenience of all things is a vexing demand on our time, spinning us into daily toil that proves of little value in the spending of it.
  • "Less is more" when we consider what we need against the backdrop of what we have.
This is no indictment of digital media. Print ads move consumers into a digital universe where relationships can be developed and tracked, in service to them. The result is deeper connections with brands, and a greater likelihood to buy, by an informed choice to marry need with desire.
 
The Internet is an effective influencer, encouraging browsers to buyers while cementing the relationship to products and providers. But it is nothing without people, and it is people who need people more than they need product. The study results above reveal an incontrovertible truth: we are social beings most in need of the enrichment that uniquely comes from other people-buyers and sellers, no less.

SENATOR GREG BALL ISSUES STATEMENT ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA

 

Albany, N.Y. – 06/20/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson) issued the following statement regarding the legalization of medical marijuana in New York State.

 

“By rejecting smoking as a delivery vehicle and embracing smokeless vapor, oils and pills, New York will be able to compassionately help those suffering from a wide range of medical conditions, without recklessly worsening our current drug culture. However, the fact that this legislation gives very broad discretion to the state Commissioner of Health, instead of the FDA, deeply concerns me. The bill broadly allows one person to completely modify this piece of legislation, to broaden the conditions eligible for medical marijuana, changing the methods of delivery to include smoking and more. For that reason, I can not support this legislation and that’s why I have voted no,” said Senator Greg Ball.

SENATOR BALL HELPS PASS PACKAGE OF BILLS ADDRESSING STATEWIDE HEROIN EPIDEMIC

 

Albany, N.Y. – 06/20/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson) joined his colleagues in the New York State Senate to pass a package of bills this week that addresses the growing heroin and opioid crisis. The legislation targets prevention, treatment and enforcement issues related to the drugs. 

 

In March 2014, Senator Greg Ball was appointed to the Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction. The bipartisan task force, chaired by Senator Phil Boyle (R-C-I, Suffolk County), examined the issues and solicited input from experts and other stakeholders about addiction prevention and treatment options, the rise in heroin and opioid use, and the potential for drug-related crimes and other negative community impacts.

 

“I am very excited to see this legislation pass after serving on the task force to combat our heroin epidemic. The heroin and opioid problem that has plagued our communities must be confronted head on,” said Senator Greg Ball. “It is sickening to read and hear of the countless deaths in our community. The passing of these bills is the first step in putting an end to the tragedy these substances have caused.” 

 

In April 2014, Senator Ball hosted a Homeland Security Drug Crisis Roundtable in conjunction with the Senate Joint Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction at the Paladin Center Tactical Training Facility in Carmel, NY.

 

The comprehensive package of 11 bills that passed this week included increasing public awareness, establishing school drug prevention programs, increasing the effectiveness of overdose prevention, increasing availability of addiction treatment, establishing relapse prevention programs, enabling parents to seek services for children suffering from substance abuse, promoting affordability of substance abuse programs and providing additional resources to law enforcement.

 

“Aggressive law enforcement efforts to stem the flow of illegal drugs and abused prescriptions is just one part of what is required to fight this scourge, that is the combined efforts of parents, government leaders, medical professionals, educators, counselors, and concerned citizens and community organizations,” said Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith.



“We are excited and hopeful about the package that was passed through the NYS Legislature this week. It is encouraging that the advocacy that has been done over the last few years has been heard by the legislature. The passage of these laws are the first steps toward reducing the stigma attached to drug addiction and to stemming the tide of this epidemic,” said Susan and Steve Salomone of ‘Drug Crisis in our Backyard’.

TOMORROW: SENATOR BALL’S FAREWELL DINNER TO BENEFIT LOCAL DISABLED VETERAN

 

Brewster, NY – 06/23/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, will be hosting a farewell pasta dinner on Tuesday night at the Mahopac Firehouse. The event will be open to the public, and will be a fundraiser for Vietnam War Veteran Dan Flanagin’s home renovations.

 

“It has been an absolute honor to serve our community and the people of this state for nearly a decade. I am very thankful for everyone who has supported me through this journey,” said Senator Greg Ball. “I am thrilled to have my final project be something as meaningful as helping out a disabled war veteran. I would like to personally invite anyone who would like to contribute to this great cause to join us on June 24th to give Danny the welcome home he so rightfully deserves.”

 

Senator Ball recently announced that he would not be seeking reelection this fall. Anyone who would like to say farewell to the Senator is invited to attend the dinner, which will be held on Tuesday, June 24th at the Mahopac Firehouse from 5 – 7 p.m. The cost of the dinner will be $20 per plate, which will include pasta, meatballs, salad and bread.

 

The event will be a fundraiser for Senator Ball’s final project before leaving office, renovating Private Dan Flanigan’s home in Pawling, NY alongside Purple Heart Homes. Private Daniel Flanigan, a 100% service-connected disabled Vietnam Veteran, was selected after a thorough vetting process by Purple Heart Homes, a non-profit based in Statesville, NC that provides housing solutions for disabled veterans. Like many service-connected disabled veterans, Dan lives on fixed income and is struggling to make ends meet. His home is over 100 years old and is in dire need of repairs.

 

Anyone interested in attending the pasta dinner is asked to RSVP by visiting: https://docs.google.com/a/ball4ny.com/forms/d/1REIKWiioYI5ByEs5bNGReTtA7_xLvIklsh52W6_RvkU/viewform or by calling Senator Ball’s office at (845) 279-3773.
