On behalf of Governor Deval L. Patrick, thank you for sharing your thoughts about funding in the FY 2010 budget.
As you know, our current economic situation demands difficult decisions. Governor Patrick realizes that behind every budget item is a family, a worker, an important service or a worthy idea. Although declining revenues made it impossible to fund every program, the administration crafted a responsible budget for the times while continuing to provide assistance to those who need it most.
Please know that the Governor is grateful to have your voice as part of this discussion, and he hopes you will stay involved in your government moving forward. Now, more than ever, your participation matters.
