Hoyt's town meeting will discuss budget

Assemblyman Sam Hoyt, D-Buffalo, will hold his annual town meeting to discuss the state budget from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in Polish Cadets Hall, 927 Grant St. at Amherst Street.

Hoyt says the meeting will focus on Gov. David A. Paterson's 2009-10 budget proposal and how it will affect Western New York.

"Although I do not agree with all of the governor's proposed cuts and fee increases," Hoyt said, "the 2009-10 fiscal projections demonstrate a need for statewide collaboration to close the growing budget deficit. With the state facing a $13 billion deficit, I need to hear from the constituents of the 144th District to assist me in identifying our priorities."
