Support The Mini Trans of Clarkstown

Councilman Donald Franchino has brought a proposal to the Town Supervisor George Hoehmann to eliminate the Mini Trans service for the town of Clarkstown. As of now the board is reviewing this proposal. As a concerned citizen I have started this petition in support of the Mini Trans, which will be submitted to the Town Board of Clarkstown. I ask that you sign this petition and SHARE IT to show support for the mini trans. If you would like to write letters of support please send to the email in which I have started to personally see these letters are delivered
