Mayor Rejects Appeal To Restore Prority 7 Vouchers

Earlier today, a group of Council Members leading the fight to restore Priority 7 vouchers had a rare meeting with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and several of his top aides to discuss the fate of the Priority 7 program.  Priority 7 is a lifeline for thousands of this city’s neediest families, ensuring that children are provided safe, professional childcare.

And, since April of this year, Council Members David Greenfield, Lew Fidler, Letitia James, Brad Lander and Stephen Levin have advocated vociferously, both publicly and privately, to save this vital program. Those Council members were joined today by Council Finance Chairman Domenic M. Recchia, Jr. in their meeting with the Mayor today.
