In response to the passage the 2016-2017 New York State Budget, Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano released the following statement:

“I applaud the recent passage of the 2016-2017 New York State Budget as it continues to transform our state, particularly with the rise in minimum wage, the approval of paid family leave, increase aid in education and the elimination of the Gap Elimination Adjustment. These initiatives will better the lives of Yonkers residents and raise the bar on our economic and social opportunities. Governor Cuomo along with the Senate, Assembly and our Yonkers Delegation, specifically Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins - Senate Democratic Leader, Senator George Latimer, Assemblymember Shelley Mayer and Assemblymember Gary Pretlow, have made tremendous progress in strengthening our State and moving it forward. Now it’s time to rebuild Yonkers Schools and I am looking forward to working with them to pass the enabling legislation this year.”
