"Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature have shown tremendous leadership in fighting to lower pension costs for Suffolk County taxpayers and taxpayers throughout New York State. Pension reform is essential to our long-term fiscal stability by ensuring that we are able to fund future workers’ retirements and the needs of residents, while keeping taxes at a level that will allow us to attract and retain residents and jobs in Suffolk County. By working together and putting people ahead of the special interests, the Governor is showing what government can do when it is committed to serving the public."
