Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on Cuomo’s Prison Closure Announcement

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Langworthy on Cuomo’s announcement
that he is closing three New York State prisons in Watertown, Gowanda, and Clinton.

December 21, 2020…“Andrew Cuomo’s announcement that he is closing three state prisons and killing thousands of jobs four days before Christmas is as cold-hearted and miserly as you can get.
“The hardworking corrections officers and jail employees have been underappreciated and disrespected when they should be receiving compassion and gratitude for working incredibly difficult jobs under horrible conditions. First, he withheld critical PPE from them and now he is ruining their families’ Christmas and putting them on unemployment lines in areas where his policies have crushed local economies giving the displaced workforce very few opportunities.
“Andrew Cuomo deserves an Emmy after all–for his real-life portrayal of Ebeneezer Scrooge, but unlike Scrooge, there is no redemption for his destruction of New Yorkers’ lives.”
