Community Members Advocate For Change

Your community is active in shaping legislation to help people get treatment for addiction.  Stephanie Campbell of Chatham, and Director of Policy for Friends Of Recovery NY (FOR-NY), Chatham Village Police Chief Peter Volkmann, the leader of the Chatham Cares 4 U program, and Kristin Hoin of Guilderland who lost her daughter, recently addressed the New York State Legislature Joint Budget Hearing on Mental Hygiene.  These hearings, each of which focuses on a programmatic area, are intended to provide the appropriate legislative committees with public input on the Executive Budget proposal. Here is video of their remarks to the Budget Committee.
