Statement from Assemblyman Dinowitz on Cuomo Resignation

Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz had previously called on Governor Cuomo to resign following a blistering report on workplace sexual harassment from the NYS Attorney General’s Office

Bronx, NY – In response to the announcement from Governor Andrew Cuomo that he will resign, effective in fourteen days, Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz has issued the following statement:

“I am relieved that this deeply troubling episode in New York’s history is finally coming to a close, but there is no excuse for it having happened in the first place. The allegations against Governor Cuomo are repugnant and numerous, and it is evident that the ongoing challenges were interfering with his ability to serve the people of New York. My heart aches for the women who suffered at the hands of Governor Cuomo, and it is highly problematic that seemingly the only way for these women to get justice was to relive their trauma in a highly public and extremely drawn-out matter. I look forward to a new chapter in New York under soon-to-be Governor Kathy Hochul and am hopeful that we can hit the ground running in our shared work on behalf of New Yorkers in the Bronx across the state.”
