Harrison budget plan draws protest
A budget proposal by Harrison Town Supervisor Joan Walsh that calls for a reduction in union salaries and a tax increase drew a protest Monday from livid union workers.
"We gave her numerous ideas on how to save money for this town," says firefighter Raymond Colasacco. "None of them have been implemented."
Walsh told protesters that if she can't cut salaries, the only other option would be layoffs or massive tax hikes.
Walsh, a Democrat, faces a challenge from Republican Police Chief David Hall in Tuesday's elections.
