.I urge Eric County Legislators to carefully review the proposed budget that Chris Collins has submitted for 2011. Severe cuts to the libraries, theaters, arts and museums is uncalled for and will hurt thousands of people in Erie County. Another issue that has not been addressed too much by the news media is the layoff of hundreds of county employees, which is definitely a political move on the part of the county executive.

Keeping employees working will help the economy.
