PUBLIC HEARING THURSDAY, JULY 29 6-9 pm Westchester County Center: Should the county scrap day care funding for kids? I disagree with the County Executive's proposed cuts. If we eliminate child care we will force parents to go on public assistance.



These programs have become a valuable asset in tough economic times for families who are seeking gainful employment and for those who already have jobs but cannot afford the cost of child care. In March, the County Executive proposed cutting $1.5 million in day-care spending .I believe that the elimination of funding for these programs is penny wise and pound foolish--will force parents to stop working and to go on public assistance. The Lois Bronz day care center on Manhattan Ave would be impacted by these cuts.

WANT TO SAVE MONEY? WWW.KnowtoriousPIG.com posts substantial discounts on their website every day. Most of the discounts are 50%+ off the typical costs. Example; $1- for an entree at a restaurant.
Want a free prescription drug card? Some residents have advised me that they have saved 40% or more off their prescriptions from this card. Also have cards for pets.
The cards are available at my office. No gimmicks, no registration. Just take a card. Cards are effective if you do not have insurance or if you are underinsured.
