The State Senate Democrats Deserve 

The breakaway faction owes voters better

BY ERIC ADAMS 

Sadly, New Yorkers have grown used to the dysfunction in Albany. But whereas in recent years it was merely individual bills that were sidelined by its power struggles, now it's entire groups being marginalized as well.

Laughably, this was done in the name of "bipartisanship" last week when six Democratic state senators broke away from their party's caucus to form a new leadership coalition with Republicans.

Joint Statement from State Senator Eric Adams and Councilman Jumaane Williams

"Law enforcement has heard our plea, and we commend them for their swift and responsive action.  This is a great example of what is possible when the NYPD engages in good coordinated police work.  A suspect, Salvatore Perrone, has been identified, apprehended and charged with the murder of 3 Brooklyn shopkeepers of Middle Eastern descent.  While nothing can replace the lives of Mohammed Gebeli, Isaac Kadare and Rahmatollah Vahidipour, hopefully some comfort will be gained knowing that this murderer is off our streets. Additionally, we plan to convene a meeting with retailers in the next couple of days to renew our call for the installation of surveillance cameras in their establishments."
