Griffo statement on resignation of governor

New York State Sen. Joseph Griffo, R-I-C-Rome, released the following statement today regarding the governor’s announcement that he will resign from office: 

“A disgraceful, disappointing and unfortunate chapter in the history of state government has ended with the resignation of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who had lost credibility and whose conduct and behavior was unacceptable. This resignation was a needed and necessary action to meet the challenges confronting New York and we cannot sit idle now. There is still much work to be done, especially as we continue to confront and recover from the coronavirus pandemic. I look forward to working with incoming Gov. Kathy Hochul to ensure that the Mohawk Valley and North Country receive the attention they deserve and that our communities have access to the resources that they need to rebuild, grow and flourish for years to come.”
