Governor Paterson in Ithaca
Governor Paterson was in Ithaca yesterday to announce a grant of $104,000 to Tompkins Community Action to provide home weatherization assistance to Tompkins County elders. Governor Paterson was joined by (L-R) NYS Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton, Ithaca Mayor Carolyn Peterson, NYS Senator George Winner and US Representative Maurice Hinchey.
HeatSmartNY.org links to some useful information, but you may get more specific information by calling the Tompkins County Helpline: 211.
Note also that the Town of Dryden is implementing a $300,000 grant for safety and energy home improvements for income-eligible homeowners. Contact the Supervisor's office for more information.
I enjoyed watching these young spectators, tired of the speeches, making shadows on the sidewalk.
