Melissa Works with Local Senior Centers to Fight MTA Budget Cuts

Melissa has joined Council Member Lappin, chair of the Council’s Aging Committee, in visiting local senior centers to collect petitions against MTA budget cuts.

Seniors and the disabled are among those groups that will be most disproportionately affected by the cuts.  In addition to general cuts to buses and trains, the MTA has also proposed eliminating door-to-door services for the disabled.

The petitions collected at these senior centers will be delivered along with others from all over the City to the MTA as they hold public hearings this week.

For more information on these efforts, see this press release.
