Statement from Legislator Ben Boykin (D-White Plains) on County Executive Astorino’s Disappointing CSEA Contract Offer

(WHITE PLAINS, NY) “Once again, County Executive Astorino is trying to balance his fiscally irresponsible budgets on the backs of Westchester County’s working families.  The County Executive must negotiate in good-faith - CSEA has gone far too long without a contract.


“County Executive Astorino has failed to plan for anticipated wage and benefit changes that would be included in fiscally responsible budgets. Meaning, the County Executive’s budgets lack the fiscal foresight needed to get us out of the self-imposed financial crisis we are in.


“County Executive Astorino’s budgets rely on overestimation of sales tax revenues, one-shot revenue sources, and borrowing for operating expenses. That is what got Westchester County into this mess – the County Executive must not cover for his mistakes by holding the financial security of Westchester’s workers hostage.”
