“I will closely analyze the 12 or so areas in New York that require mandate relief, starting with Medicaid, which should ultimately be assumed by the federal and/or the state government with no burden upon local taxpayers.
“I will ensure, however, that all Medicaid recipients, both young and old, are not negatively impacted by any change in the Medicaid delivery system.
“I will work with the Mandate Relief Councils and will propose legislation, where appropriate, to enact mandate relief and will partner with county leaders to maintain and bolster the quality of life for all New York state residents.
“I will oppose any future state unfunded mandates which drain local tax dollars from providing the local services that are most needed by our towns and villages.”
