Gov. Mark Warner will talk about budget cuts with around 200 state employees in Richmond Tuesday morning. Warner is expected to outline his priorities, but will ask workers for their suggestions and questions.
Some Staunton Correctional Center employees will be there with questions of their own. They will ask the governor about the future for the prison workers.
"What we like to know is where are we going to be placed," said Jeff Kurtz of Staunton Correctional Center, "If we are going to have a job and give us some timetable to let us know what is going to happen. Everybody is held in limbo with this situation."
Employees say there is an easy solution to this, if the state would offer a good early retirement package to workers.
