Ed Cox responds to Hochul’s comments on crime

NEW YORK CITY — Speaking in New York City today following the passage of her budget a month late, Kathy Hochul said:

“Individuals running next year for Congress on down can talk about how Democrats take public safety very seriously. This is not a Republican-owned issue. It’s something that we’re the ones leading on. We’re the ones solving the problems and not just standing on the sidelines taking potshots.”

NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement in response:

“Kathy Hochul continues to have her head in the sand on crime. The changes made in her budget are just window dressing – New York remains the only state in the nation where judges cannot make a bail decision based on the dangerousness of the defendant. Democrats failed to address the havoc the discovery rules have caused for prosecutors. Even Alvin Bragg called for changes to the discovery laws to no avail.

“Democrats running for Congress and the State Legislature in 2024 are not going to be able to hide on this issue. Their silence indicates that they support Kathy Hochul’s failed crime policies.”
