Sen. Squadron, at St. Charles Jubilee Senior Center, Opposes Budget Cuts for Senior Services

State Senator Daniel Squadron, whose district includes Brooklyn Heights, spoke to seniors at the St. Charles Jubilee Senior Center, 55 Pierrepont Street, today. He opposes proposed changes to the state budget that would redirect over $17 million in funds from senior centers and other services without any replacement funding. This, he said, could severely affect the services provided by centers like St. Charles Jubilee. He has a petition to save funding for senior centers; you can sign it here.

    I followed the link above, signed the petition. I don’t use the center, but might in the future.

    I signed the petition primarily because I believe our senior citizens deserve more. I’m curious to know what matters more to cut the budget by $17 million than quality of life of those that worked to create what we have today.
