NYS Senate Candidate Forum
On Monday we hosted the candidates for the 57th New York State Senate District in a forum to discuss health care in our region. I’d like to thank George Borrello and Austin Morgan for taking time from their busy campaigns to meet with health care stakeholders from across our counties. It was an open and truthful dialog with the candidates about realities facing constituents and the health systems that deliver their care. Health administrators across the board expressed difficulties recruiting and retaining a skilled workforce. As in the past, we used this forum format to address these complex topics without political pressures and distractions from the public spotlight. 
 
I wish both candidates the best of luck in this special election to fill the seat held for many years by former Sen. Cathy Young. The people of our district need another strong voice in Albany for health care.
Caregiver Respite Pilot Program
Jordan Taylor, our Program Assistant, attended the Communities Care WNY Family Caregivers Respite Pilot Program Kick-Off Event on Monday at Holiday Valley Resort. The Health Foundation for Western and Central New York and Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation are partnering to administer this program, which will bring community organizations together to provide compassionate support to family caregivers in Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua and Wyoming counties. Jordan heard a presentation on phase one, in which participating organizations will brainstorm creative solutions, form partnerships, and set the stage for increased respite opportunities for caregivers of older adults and individuals with disabilities.  

We’re looking forward to participating in this process. Jordan will be attending each of the upcoming meetings needed to advance to phase two, where promising partnerships can apply for program funding.
