Assemblyman Santabarbara’s Statement on Supreme Court Justice Marcelle's Ruling

"It is imperative that we demand accountability from our government, stand firm in our efforts to combat crime, and uphold unwavering honesty and integrity at every level of governance. The widespread disillusionment among many New Yorkers regarding their elected representatives is a stark reality. While I hold great respect for the judgment of state Supreme Court Justice Thomas Marcelle, who declared the state's ethics commission unconstitutional, the undeniable truth is that New York demands accountability, vigilant oversight, and utmost transparency within its government. We must take decisive steps to restore public trust in state government and implement innovative policies that ensure those who violate ethical standards face the most severe consequences."
