ASSEMBLYMAN SCHMITT ANNOUNCES OVER $1 MILLION IN FUNDING TO RENEW ROADS IN HIS DISTRICT

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I-New Windsor) is proud to announce over $1 million in funding through the PAVE NY initiative for renewal of state roads in his district impacted by extreme weather events. This investment in our infrastructure will enhance safety for motorists and increase sustainability for our roadways.

Assemblyman Schmitt has been a strong advocate for infrastructure improvements working collaboratively with his partners in government and local highway superintendents to secure increases in funding. The renewal projects in Assemblyman Schmitt’s district include $600,000 to renew Route 94 from Route 9W to Old Forge Hill Road in Orange County and $450,000 to renew Route 32 from Union Avenue to Old Temple Hill Road in Orange County. These projects announced today will begin this spring and will be completed during the winter of 2020.

Assemblyman Colin Schmitt stated, “I am proud to announce this critical funding to fix our roads, fill potholes and make driving better and safer in our district after deterioration from severe weather. Those who drive around know how deteriorated our roads have become and some roadways pose serious dangers to motorists. With this investment into renewal of roads, coupled with increases in additional infrastructure funding that I will be fighting for in the budget, we will be able to properly repair and maintain state roads in our community.”

SCHMITT STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR’S BUDGET ADDRESS

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I-New Windsor) released the following statement today in response of the Governor’s 2020 budget address:

“The Governor’s budget address left little to be desired. There was a lot of fancy talk and powerpoint slides but the core of what will impact Hudson Valley families should worry all residents. Of paramount concern is the Governor’s proposal to change the school funding formula which would take money away from Hudson Valley Schools to be redistributed elsewhere. Increasing our local property tax burden. This is unacceptable. The Governor also proposed a two year DOT capital plan versus the traditional five year plan, which will have significant negative impacts on our Hudson Valley infrastructure.

I stand strongly opposed to any outrageous efforts to hurt the Hudson Valley during the budget process and will not relent in fighting for our fair share of funding.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today in Highland Falls I had the distinct privilege of joining the MLK Peace March with Mrs. Joyce Clayborne who has organized the March for decades, a tradition she started with her late Husband Rev. Jesse Clayborne.

Thank you Mrs. Clayborne for keeping this tradition going and allowing me and all who joined the ability to remember and live out the true meaning of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day right here in our local community.
