Statement from Senator Anthony Palumbo on Governor Cuomo’s Resignation

State Capitol

Embattled Governor Cuomo’s announcement of his impending resignation is welcome news to New Yorkers and will save the state time and money in removing him from office through impeachment.  Now, state government must refocus its energies on defeating the COVID Delta variant, working to rebuild New York’s struggling economy and infrastructure and combating the rise in violent crime.   I look forward to working with New York’s first female Governor, Kathy Hochul, to put this dark episode in State Government behind us and work to heal the state as we move forward through these times of great uncertainty.
