This week, we'll be calling Governor Cuomo urging him to get on board!
Governor Cuomo's Number: 1-518-474-8390 then Press 2.
Script to Governor Cuomo: Hi, I'm (name), a concerned New Yorker, and I'm calling about Budget Justice. Cuomo's amended budget nibbles around the edges of the big problems facing New Yorkers - housing, healthcare, education, and environmental justice.
It sounds like he just hasn't been listening to the 90% of New York State voters who want to tax the rich so we can meet our communities' needs. Please tell the Governor that his budget remains unacceptable, as it undercuts NYCHA, Medicaid, Foundation Aid for public schools, and funding to implement the Climate and Community Leadership Protection Act.
I'm ready to tax billionaires and build a state where we can all prosper!
