Blumencranz: Suburban Lifestyle Is Under Attack

A statement from Assemblyman Jake Blumencranz (R,C-Oyster Bay)

“It was very important to stand beside local officials and state lawmakers today to challenge Gov. Hochul’s high-rise plan together. The Majority is not hearing us, so we will continue to speak up until they do. The governor’s housing plan is not in New Yorkers’ best interest as it attacks local rule, leaves emergency services unequipped to handle the influx in population and hinders sewer and waste management as it will overwhelm existing infrastructure. There are too many unforeseen problems that will be revealed further down the road for this plan to move forward.”
