STATEMENT FROM NEW YORK STATE CONSERVATIVE PARTY CHAIRMAN GERARD KASSAR
“Lt. Governor Hochul Should Be Included in All Key State Matters to Ensure Continuity of Government”
Brooklyn, NY – “Andrew Cuomo’s tenure as governor could abruptly come to an end, and it’s critically important that Lt. Governor Kathleen Hochul be fully immersed in all state government matters, down to the granular level, in case such an eventuality takes place. Continuity of government in the midst of significant challenges must be ensured. That doesn’t appear to be the case today, based on the Lt. Governor’s public schedule.
“Lt. Governor Hochul should immediately and significantly be included in the state budget negotiations with Senate and Assembly leadership, Covid vaccine rollout planning, federal relief negotiations with the Biden Administration, and other core state operations. Governor Cuomo, whose position as governor appears untenable, should make that happen today. The state must be fully ready for whatever comes next.”
