Our Problems Have A Common Denominator: Governor Cuomo

By Morgan Zegers | Letters to the Editor

Governor Cuomo is two things: corrupt and out of touch. 

Recently, Governor Cuomo was asked what issues Upstate voters care about. He answered, “...I think they're concerned about national issues and the plight of the nation..." I beg to differ. Every day, Upstate New Yorkers must face the consequences of Governor Cuomo's out-of-touch and corrupt policies. That is what we care about. 

We pay the highest state and local tax burden in the country. Yet hundreds of millions of our tax dollars have been directed to top Cuomo political donors and insiders. 

We have crumbling roads, increasing property taxes, over-regulated businesses, struggling dairy farmers, and New York is one of the most expensive states to live in. 

Instead of focusing on these important everyday issues, Cuomo insists on passing far-left policies with no care for the cost or impact on Upstate New York families and businesses. 

Governor Cuomo would know what we care about if we had vocal and active representation in Albany reminding him and his crew of Albany politicians how valuable Saratoga and Washington Counties are to New York State. 

Our current leadership has been silent and complacent with the well-known Cuomo corruption for too long. Our Upstate voice will not go unheard any longer. Washington and Saratoga Counties deserve better and we will demand better. So, career politicians: consider yourself on notice.
