Palumbo Lashes Out At Governor for Economic Development Award Show

Statement from Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo (R,C,I,Ref-New Suffolk)
December 13, 2017

“Today Gov. Cuomo once again tossed around millions of taxpayer dollars as if he was the host of a game show. This as two of his top aides face federal corruption charges related to investment in his previous, failed Economic development programs. The numbers do not lie, these initiatives have failed and produced a very minimal number of jobs in regard to the amount of taxpayer dollars being invested into these programs.

“Although I fully support investment in Long Island, I believe that it being done in this manner is troubling. We need greater oversight and transparency in the process, as well as proof that the funds are being spent properly and efficiently.”
