Statement from Executive Director Charlie King
“I read the breathless AP story about 40 local Democratic officials who disagree with Governor Cuomo’s budget. I looked at the list and recognize only some of the names and I am the Executive Director of the Democratic Party. The lack of state legislators on the list would have been the more fair and important story to report. On any issue, given the nature of the Democratic Party you should be able to find hundreds of differing opinions given the thousands of Democratic elected officials in the state. The New York State Democratic Committee recognizes the State’s fiscal crisis and stands strongly in support of Governor Cuomo's budget.”
- Charlie King, Executive Director, New York State Democratic Committee
