TSM - Chairs placed outside Head Start site in New Bedford, protesting budget cuts.

A quiet, but meaningful protest outside the Head Start early education site on Madison Street in New Bedford.

Thirty-two small chairs were lined up outside the entrance to the building on Monday, signifying the 32 slots that won't be filled by children, because of sequestration cuts in federally-funded programs.

Surprenant says she and other program administrations will continue working with members of Congress to assure that federal cut's don't go any deeper in the years ahead.
