Senator Rachel May (D-Syracuse) and Senator John W. Mannion (D-Geddes) today announced $100,000 in grants to combat gun violence in the City of Syracuse. Senator Mannion joins "Syracuse's Morning News" Tuesday at 7:05AM.
Senator John W. Mannion said, “The proliferation of gun violence in Syracuse and in cities across New York demands action. To help keep our streets safe, I am directing funds to bolster community-based intervention programs. Issues surrounding firearms are among the most challenging, complicated, and polarizing of our times. As a former teacher, I believe many solutions to these problems begin with keeping kids in school and on a pathway to college or a career.”
