New Yorkers Deserve Better

A statement from Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C,I,Ref-Medford)

“In light of the country and state of New York remaining in states of emergencies, now is not the right time to advocate for policies in our state budget as Majority has previously done. To top it all off, two members of the Assembly have tested positive for coronavirus. The citizens of our great state deserve a government that will pass a responsible budget to keep the state operating,” said DeStefano. “If the governor tries to push his far-reaching political agenda into this year’s budget, I guarantee you I will debate and fight back against his outlandish proposals. New Yorker’s deserve to hear the truth. Our state deserves better than a governor who wants to advance his own policies in the middle of a public health crisis. I will continue to fight for what’s best for our families.”
