Statement from Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville) on NYS DOH Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker Resigning

James Tedisco

“Sadly, in New York corrupt governors and their sycophant henchmen who don’t take responsibility for their bad actions don’t get impeached or fired…they just skulk away. Good riddance to Dr. Zucker, who should have been fired last year as I was among the first legislators to call for. Zucker should be removed today immediately and an interim Health Department Commissioner should be named.  The families of the 15,000 New Yorkers who lost their lives to COVID-19 in nursing homes that Zucker and former Governor Cuomo covered-up still deserve an apology and justice for what happened to their loved ones – one of the worst tragedies in New York State history.”
