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.
