Statement From Speaker Silver
On The Passing Of Governor Hugh Carey
As a State Assemblyman, I worked with Governor Carey for six years and I learned a great deal from him. Governor Carey guided New
York through some of its most difficult challenges and helped rescue the city and state from the brink of financial disaster. We all owe
him a huge debt of gratitude and he set the stage for a tremendous comeback that allowed New York to continue to truly be the Empire
State. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
