State must stop wasting tax money

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion As a New York state taxpayer, along with most of you readers, I’m appalled at the lack of outrage regarding the current state budget that was just recently pushed through. Some examples of extreme waste are $3 million that was allotted to the Dick’s Sporting Goods Golf Tournament — yes, $3 million. Also, $300,000 was given to Cornell University for “concord grape research,” as well as $100,000 to the town of East Hampton for “tourism initiatives.” Trust me, this is a town that doesn’t need this kind of help. There are many other examples of money given for these “pet projects,” which in my opinion, could have been better spent elsewhere.We have roads loaded with potholes and infrastructure that’s falling apart around us, yet those worthy causes didn’t get the money they need. Just to get out in time for the Easter and Passover holidays, lawmakers chose to fund these other unworthy causes.  What about organizations and institutions established to help the poor and those in need? Food pantries and homeless shelters are in constant need of funds and supplies to help the many who go hungry and have nowhere to sleep in New York state every day. Apparently, they’re less important than a golf tournament.Let’s send out a message to our elected representatives on Election Day, or messages to their respective offices even sooner. This isn’t how I want our money spent.Come on, lawmakers, get your act together. Do your jobs and earn our respect. Fund the causes that truly need it — and not spend billions in pork-barrel spending. And you wonder why people are disgusted.Margaret HesdorferSchoharieMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more
