How Albany’s Budget
will impact Central New York

Will Barclay
124th District

Dear Neighbor,

New York has one of the highest state and local tax burdens in the country. Governor Paterson’s proposed 2009-2010 budget includes 137 new taxes and fees. If enacted, this will cost the average family an additional $3,875.48 per year. This budget proposal hikes taxes and fees on things such as gasoline, clothing, haircuts, cable and satellite TV. It even creates a new “obesity tax” on certain beverages.

If this budget proposal is passed, more businesses, jobs and residents will leave our state. We cannot afford this in Central New York. That is why it is important that the budget process is open and transparent. I will continue to inform my constituents of these proposals and I encourage you to let me know your thoughts on the budget. The state shouldn’t balance the budget on the backs of hardworking New Yorkers and I will continue to fight against these new taxes.

If you have any questions on the budget or any other state issue, or if you would like to be added to my mailing list or receive my newsletter, please contact my district office. My office can be reached by mail at 200 North Second Street, Fulton, New York 13069, by e-mail at, or by calling (315) 598-5185.

The Governor’s plan to increase taxes and fees on our already overburdened families is not the answer to the budget deficit. This budget will only hurt the Central New York economy and job growth. I will continue to work on finding alternative solutions that will not negatively impact our community.
