Firefighters, cops protest cuts in White Plains
Police officers and firefighters from White Plains protested this week against looming layoffs in the city.
Joseph Carrier, president of the White Plains Firefighters Union, says any proposed cuts to his department will result in a less-safe city for all residents.
"They are talking layoffs and if they proceed with these layoffs, we're 11 firefighters down," Carrier says.
Mayor Adam Bradley has argued in the past the city is facing a more than $8 million deficit. Bradley and the White Plains City Council are considering a double-digit tax increase or layoffs.
