BEACON, N.Y. (PRWEB) May 04, 2019
“As a Democratic candidate for City Council in Beacon NY, I want to congratulate Senator Schumer for pushing ahead to get federal funding for rebuilding our infrastructure,” said Kelly Ellenwood.
“Beacon, formerly a mill town, has been through a lot of economic ups and downs. We are a small city in New York, and can’t possibly fund by ourselves the rebuilding our bridges, roads and sewer systems need.”
“One concern I have is how the funding will be allocated. Because Beacon has made progress, it is assumed we don’t need help. In fact, it is BECAUSE we have made progress that it is clear that we could do much more if we had access to more funds.”
“My respectful recommendation to Senator Schumer and his team is that regions and cities be asked to submit a fiscal sustainability action plan in order to determine which cities have the best ideas and potential to put them into place.”
“If the Senator gives cities the reason to start planning now, the results can only be better for all.”
