Assemblyman Jones: North Country Stands Strong with NYC

November 1, 2017

“Yesterday afternoon, the cowardly actions of one man claimed the lives of eight innocent individuals and injured over a dozen more in New York City. On behalf of the 115th Assembly District, I would like to extend our prayers and condolences to the friends and families of those victimized by this act of terror. I would also like to thank the emergency personnel that cared for those wounded and the heroic actions of law enforcement that were able to subdue the assailant.

As we await more details into this horrific tragedy, it is important that we are there for one another to begin the healing process. The people of New York are strong and resilient. We will get through this together.”
