Letter: YES Fights Funding Reductions

We are writing to apprise your readers as to the current state of affairs related to Nassau County.  Agencies throughout the county that serve children, families and those struggling with drug and alcohol issues have been recently defunded as the result of county politics.  We have begun an online petition and are securing signatures so that our elected officials understand that children and families are important.  We encourage you to use the information you see on the petition to move this effort forward in a way that rises above politics and ensures that every person’s voice is heard.  Our constituents do count. Our elected officials must understand that they were elected to represent everyone’s voice.

To read more about what we are trying to do and to sign this petition, go the following site: http://tinyurl.com/YESPetition.
