“In his speech today, Governor Cuomo outlined a clear progressive vision for protecting our most vulnerable citizens, continued economic development and job creation, a fairer criminal justice system, a more equitable educational system, greater infrastructure investment and a plan for addressing sexual harassment in New York State.

“In the face of a hostile Washington, it is up to state and local governments to develop plans to keep our city and state moving in a positive direction. Today, Governor Cuomo did just that.

“I have been proud to partner with Governor Cuomo on a variety of projects and issues during my tenure as borough president, and I look forward to continuing to work with him to make our city and state work for everyone,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
