New York, NY - Budget Director Comes Under Fire for Voucher Cuts
New York, NY - Furious City Council members lashed out at Mayor Bloomberg’s budget director, blaming him for cuts to libraries, firehouses and child care.
Budget chief Mark Page also took heat from the council’s GOP leader, James Oddo (SI), for letting pensions, health care and debt-service costs skyrocket during Bloomberg’s tenure.
Councilman David Greenfield (D-Brooklyn) screamed, “Shame on all of you!” to Page for shifting child-care vouchers to a new city agency—a move Greenfield likened to a cut because the services are not equal.
