Statement from Chairman Cox on Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio's Recent Remarks
November 21, 2016
"What we have witnessed from both Governor Cuomo at the Abyssinian Baptist Church yesterday and Mayor de Blasio at Cooper Union this morning is a naked and unseemly fight to position themselves to be the 2020 Democratic nominee for President. These two scorpions in a bottle are each trying to outdo one another with slanderous fear-mongering hyperbole, rather than focusing on their respective jobs running New York State and New York City. Both officials need a strong working relationship with the federal government and with each suffering from low job approval ratings, they should get back to working on behalf of New York's citizens, not their own political ambitions."
