Letter to Mayor Matt Ryan of Binghamton on potential effect of debt ceiling

Mayor Matt Ryan

As a constituent, and a member of the press, I wish you ask you about the potential ramifications of the current debate about the debt ceiling. While the debate is in the hands of the President and Congress, the effect of those discussions directly affect every American.

Therefore, I wish to ask the following on behalf of my readership, as well as for my own concerns.

1) What preparations, if any are possible, have you taken with regard to the potential that the debt ceiling is NOT raised by August 2nd?

2) If the debt ceiling is not raised, how will this effect constituents in Binghamton, as well as Broome County – to your knowledge at this time?

3) Will essential services for the City of Binghamton be affected? If so, which ones, to what degree, and in what timeframe?

4) Have you spoken with members of the Democrat, and/or Republican, leadership in the State as well as Congressional representatives on your concerns for Binghamton? Can you share what their response was to your thoughts?

5) Are you aware of any plans being in place or prepared by Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the State of New York, if a debt ceiling deal is not reached on August 2nd or prior?

I have reached out to Sen. Schumer, Sen. Gillibrand, Rep. Maurice Hinchey, and will be reaching out to Gov. Cuomo, with similar questions that my readership and fellow constituents have on this matter. As always, any response will be shared VERBATIM, so constituents and readers will be clear on your efforts in this matter on their behalf.

As you are aware, if you would like to contact me directly to further clarify your position, on this or any matter, you can contact me for an interview via email, phone, and/or in person as we have in the past.

I thank you as a constituent and member of the press for your time and attention on this matter.
