Assemblymember Lavine Statement on Resignation of Governor Cuomo

Glen Cove, New York – Assemblymember Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) issued the following statement on the resignation of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo:

These have been deeply troubling times for New Yorkers.As New York State Assembly speaker Carl E. Heastie has said, “This has been a tragic chapter in our state’s history.”

Speaking ‘truth to power’ is never an easy pursuit.As we begin to move forward, let us recognize the courage, strength and integrity of the women who dared to come forward.Moreover, let us commit ourselves to continuing the battle for the inalienable rights of our sisters and daughters in New York and in every other state.

I have worked with Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul for many years and have the greatest faith in her ability to lead and heal the people of our State.
