In an unprecedented survey of more than forty-five hundred New Yorkers, The Dyson Foundation/Marist Poll set out to uncover residents’ views toward the issue of local government consolidation.
Striking a Balance: New Yorkers Speak Out on Rightsizing Local Government, originally released earlier this year in April, focuses on nine regions in the state — The Capital Region, The Adirondacks, Western New York, The Finger Lakes, Central New York, The Mid-Hudson Valley, The Lower Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island. And, this week, the Dyson Foundation/Marist Poll is releasing key survey findings from each of those nine regions.
The schedule for release is:
- The Adirondacks, The Capital Region, and The Mid-Hudson Valley: Tuesday, October 4, 2011
- Western New York, The Finger Lakes, and Central New York: Wednesday, October 5, 2011
- The Lower Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island: Thursday, October 6, 2011
