Governor Cuomo Resigns in Disgrace
On Tuesday Andrew Cuomo gave one of the most disingenuous resignation speeches in human memory, but at least he resigned.
We trust that his stepping down will do nothing to slow the myriad investigations into his misbehaviors, including covering up nursing home death data; profiting $5.1 million from his obfuscation of those deaths; using state-paid employees to write his tome, and allegations of both physical and verbal sexual abuse of at least 11 women.
Mr. Cuomo’s behavior has shown the need for far greater transparency in New York State government, and so many questions for him still need to be answered.
We continue to call on the Assembly to proceed with impeachment proceedings, along with the Albany County Sheriff Department’s investigation into the criminal complaints levied against Governor Cuomo. He must be held accountable for his actions.
Incoming Governor Kathy Hochul
The Conservative Party wishes incoming Governor Kathleen Hochul well in her transition to New York’s top executive office. New York has faced much adversity over the last 18 months, and it is time for leaders to put the needs of the entire state over themselves.
However, we will continue holding her to account for allowing Mr. Cuomo’s gross, well-known behavior to go on for the past seven years she served as his Lt. Governor. Often times, the Lt. Governor verbalized how proud she was to work alongside Governor Cuomo. With the information we now have, it is unlikely that she and her staff could have been so blind to the many misdeeds occurring in the Cuomo administration.
We cannot afford another clubhouse politician as New York’s Chief Executive. We need and deserve transparency from a Governor the public can respect and puts constituents first.
Cayuga County Conservative Party
The Cayuga County Conservative Party held their annual clambake honoring long time party leader Greg Rigby. The event was a great success, and I was beyond pleased to see the Cayuga organization functioning so well.
I want to congratulate Chairman David Pappert and his committee on a great afternoon. The more than 200 people in attendance was a clear indicator of the good work he and his committee are doing.
Greg Rigby and his wife have re-located to South Carolina and we wish them nothing but the best. Greg has been a dear friend and leader within the Conservative Party holding positions as both Cayuga County Chairman and State Party Vice Chairman. He will be greatly missed here in New York State.
