DeStefano: Amazon Breaks Gov. Cuomo’s Heart

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

“Gov. Cuomo’s $3 billion handout wasn’t enough to entice Amazon to open shop in Long Island City. His actions have proven that this deal was not created with the taxpayers in mind, but only to benefit his self-serving agenda. There are branches of state government and committees in place to negotiate deals like these, and if the Amazon deal had been done the right way, it could have been a more successful one.”
