For Immediate Release
Statement from Senator Rubén Díaz
State Senator Rubén Díaz today released the following statement in response to a comment that was made by Senator Neil Breslin on September 1, 2010 at the College of Saint Rose.
“Senator Breslin is in no position to judge the ethical or legislative seriousness with which other members of the Senate take their jobs. He stated that ‘we have to rid ourselves’ ... of ‘people who don't take their responsibilities either ethically seriously or legislatively seriously...’ then specifically mentioned Senator Espada, Hiram Monserrate, and myself. His comment was unconscionable and uncalled for.
