RUSSELL: CUOMO SAYS OGDENSBURG CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IS 'SAFE' IN BUDGET, BUT FEAR IS ALWAYS THERE--118th Assembly District Representative Addie Russell says she has been told by Governor Andrew Cuomo he does not have his sights set on OCF as part of cuts to Corrections and many other operations, however she is alwways concerned and is watching the situation closely as are many others. The fight to save Ogdensburg Correctional took the collective might of a massive lobbying effort in 2010. Russell says the North Country will see massive cuts to SUNY and health care in particular when Cuomo unveils his budget next week. Russell was part of a meeting of Democratic majority Assembly members meeting at the Governor's mansion with Cuomo Tuesday morning.
