Senator Akshar Releases Survey
State Senator Fred Akshar released his Community Voice Survey this week in an effort to gather opinions from his constituents on close to a dozen state issues facing the 52nd senate district. The survey was mailed to thousands of households across the district, but can also be completed easily on-line at akshar.nysenate.gov. The survey follows a series of pop up office events held in 8 locations across the district, drawing crowds of 10 to 80 people to discuss various issues, from tax relief to school funding to the heroin epidemic. Akshar has used a steady schedule of community engagement events to craft his legislative agenda, including his small business jobs revitalization act introduced earlier this year, his support for the planting seeds initiative to promote local upstate farms and his opposition to Governor Cuomo's proposed 15 dollar minimum wage. If you'd like to take part in the survey go on-line to akshar.nysenate.gov.
