Senator Ball Touring Peekskill One-Stop Career Center and Downtown Business District
Brewster, N.Y. – (10/11/11) – Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) is visiting the One-Stop Employment Center in Peekskill this week to get a better understanding of the services the center provides and get people back to work. The visit is just one of the Senator’s many initiatives created to connect residents with the tools, knowledge and resources they need to find a new job.
“On the state level, I’m demanding that we go back to Albany and hold a special session focused on nothing but jobs,” said Senator Ball. “But I can’t sit around and wait for that to happen. People in my district are in crisis. So I’m teaming up with the resources that are already out there and helping connect people with the tools they need to get back to work,” added Ball.
Senator Ball will also join Peekskill Mayor Mary Foster for a walk-and-talk tour of the city’s downtown district. The Senator and Mayor will visit Peekskill business owners in attempt to better understand the needs of small businesses within the community.
The media is invited to join Senator Ball as he tours the Peekskill One-Stop Employment Center and downtown district. Excellent photo and interview opportunities will be available.
