We encourage each of you to contact these legislators individually to ask for their support for this important initiative.  Please take time to call, write or email them to encourage their support.  By going to the sites below you can send an email to Sen. Funke and/or Assemblyman Kolb.


Senator Rich Funke:  https://www.nysenate.gov/senators/rich-funke/contact 

Assemblyman Kolb:  http://nyassembly.gov/mem/Brian-M-Kolb/contact 

The wording below may be used to contact the legislators above, or feel free to use your own wording: 


I am requesting your support for funding for development and implementation of action plans to manage harmful algal blooms as proposed in Governor Cuomo’s 2018-19 Executive Budget.  This proposal would provide up to $65 million dollars to develop and implement management plans to mitigate significant Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) on 12 New York lakes including our own Honeoye Lake.  HABs have significantly reduced the recreational and commercial viability of Honeoye Lake and represent a significant health risk from potential exposure to toxins released by some HABs.
