Statement on Gov. Cuomo's Refusal to Challenge Speaker Silver from Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I - Fishkill)
“Governor Cuomo has failed as a leader by refusing to challenge Speaker Silver. Cuomo claims that it’s not his place to say whether or not Silver should remain as speaker. Cuomo is wrong. He is the governor and the leader of the New York Democratic Party. In those roles, it is his place to demand reform. It’s his job. It’s his responsibility.
