Kevin Byrne is a member of the NY Legislature; his district (94) covers parts of Putnam and Westchester Counties. His mission is seeing that the public is aware of present issues in the area. Kevin is a member of the Health Committee and feels very strongly about public health. He said that he and his colleagues do not agree about all issues, but that the atmosphere in the legislature is that “they agree to disagree.” The question and answer and discussion period was lively, especially in the area of public health and education.
We are all happy and relieved that the budget has been passed. Thank you Kevin for speaking to us and come again.
Alice presided and the following was discussed:
