Cuts to youth summer programs ‘shameful and despicable,’ says Paterson resident

As a resident/taxpayer of Paterson I am embarrassed to consider the likes of Torres as our Mayor, representing our city. For him to cut the budget of the Dept. of Recreation Summer Program is shameful and despicable.

There are much larger wasteful areas where he can cut – leave the city’s children out of it.  Cutting this dept.’s funding is only a drop in the empty bucket.

SHAME ON HIM!

We plan on making our voices/opinions from Garret Heights heard at Tuesday’s July 26 meeting. If he repaid all the money paid to the DPW men working on his personal projects, he could keep the pools and summer programs open!

Margaret Knudsen
City resident
