Concerned about Veteran Resources in Schenectady County

As ‍a former marine and a native of Schenectady, I am disappointed to see the lack of resources ⁢provided​ towards our brave servicemen and ‌women who have served our county. I recently read the WHNY News article on local veteran suicide rates. Unfortunately, this reality hits close to home as I ​have lost two of my ⁣army buddies to the same fate.‌ It’s⁣ clear that⁢ we ​need more support systems, both mental health ​and ​economic, in ⁣place for our veterans​ returning home. We owe it to them.

Proposed School District Budget Cuts

As an ⁤educator and parent in the​ Schenectady City School District, I am deeply concerned‌ about the proposed budget⁤ cuts. The recent article on WHNY News highlighting these⁢ proposed cuts is‍ disheartening. Our children ⁢are⁣ our‌ future, and to provide anything less than the best educational facilities, resources, and educators is doing them a gross disservice. Before these proposals go any further, ​I urge our leaders to consider the potential long-term effects on our children ‍and our community.

Improvements in Local Public Transportation Appreciated

I want ⁣to ⁢express‌ my gratitude to the hardworking employees in Schenectady’s ⁢public transportation ⁣services. ​As a​ lifelong ​resident and regular‍ bus user, I have ‍very much appreciated the recent improvements to the system,⁣ a change that was⁣ duly noted in a recent WHNY News feature. The new routes have drastically cut down on commute times and the new‍ buses are clean‌ and comfortable. I applaud our city’s commitment to maintaining a high-quality public transportation system. Keep up the good work!
