For Immediate Release June 11, 2021 Contact: Shaun Marie 518-356-7882 www.cpnys.org @cpnys Statement from New York Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar
Brooklyn, NY – “The 2021 legislative session in Albany was an unmitigated failure. It raised taxes, benefited criminals, hurt the middle class, and failed to hold Governor Andrew Cuomo accountable for his actions. They included the deaths of thousands of New Yorkers from misplacing Covid-19 patients in nursing homes, an attempted coverup of that mistake that almost certainly helped secure a $5.1 million book deal for him, the illegal use of state workers to help write his book, and multiple allegations of sexual misconduct waged against him from female employees half his age.
“Nothing in this session helped reverse New York’s continued economic decline relative to other states; nothing gave parents greater confidence in their children’s education or in their safety in public spaces. The only progress that occurred this session was the increasing realization among common-sense New Yorkers that one-party, ‘progressive’ rule in Albany must be brought to an end.”
