LONG ISLAND, NY – The following statement was released today by Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C,I-East Patchogue):
Although I agree with some of the governor’s proposals such as combating sexual harassment and assault, it appears the governor is using this list of policy proposals not to improve the lives of New Yorkers but to increase his chances of becoming president.
It is hypocrisy at its core when the governor proclaims to help middle-class families then burdens them with the cost of numerous unfunded mandates. Programs like these will surely open the door to increased taxes and fees in Suffolk County.
Furthermore, there was little mention of primary education issues like APPR.
I will be working this year to make the lives of Suffolk County families more affordable and prosperous, despite what appears to be a governor that attempts to do the opposite.”
Assemblyman Dean Murray represents the 3rd District, which includes portions of Brookhaven, Medford, and Mastic Beach in Suffolk County. For more information, visit Assemblyman Murray’s Official Website.
