Assemblyman Joseph Giglio Reacts to Governor Cuomo’s Resignation

“This governor had no choice than to be held accountable for his actions and resignation was his only real way out, barring impeachment. Andrew Cuomo is a disgrace to the office of governor of the state of New York.

“While Mr. Cuomo has resigned based on the attorney general’s report and the allegations of sexual harassment, he still must answer for the nursing home deaths, priority COVID testing for those in his inner circle, safety issues with the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, and the use of state resources in the publication of his book about his ‘leadership’ during the pandemic.

“The Judiciary Committee should complete their work and release their findings on all of the issues being investigated, and for which impeachment was being considered.

“It is my hope that Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, a native of Western New York, will provide a more open, bipartisan administration for all New Yorkers. I wish her well as she assumes the awesome responsibilities that accompany the position of governor of New York State.”
