Tom MorriseyComment

Rochester, New York — April 1, 2015. Please see the following statement from Minority Leader Carrie Andrews on behalf of the Democratic Caucus in the County Legislature regarding the news that New York State will provide additional child care funding for Monroe County:

‘While we applaud the state’s willingness to step up and support hard working families in Monroe County, this one time infusion will not cure years of cuts inflicted by local leaders. Our county needs to follow the state’s lead and make child care a priority so all families have access to quality and affordable care for their children.’
