DeStefano on ‘We Care’ Remembrance Day

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

“Today I stood with my colleagues to celebrate “We Care” Remembrance Day, which honors the lives of over 15,000 New York nursing home and adult-care facility residents. It has been a year since the governor issued the notorious executive order which sent COVID-positive patients into nursing homes, many of these families are still without answers. The governor spent months trying to cover this up, he lied and misled the public. Now we will come together each year on March 25 to commemorate the lives lost due to Gov. Cuomo’s directive and ensure their legacies are not forgotten.”
