IS GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL AFRAID OF JUMAANE WILLIAMS?
You should know that the editorial page of the New York Post, published on Monday, October 18, 2021, gave me the impression that Governor Kathy Hochul is afraid of losing the governorship to Public Advocate Jumaane Williams or State Attorney Letitia James both, African Americans.
According to the Post editorial, since Kathy Hochul was appointed governor, she has gone out of her way to appoint people whose politics and ideologies lean toward the socialist and far-left wing of the Democrat party, as if to take the left leaning base away from both of them.
You should know that Governor Hochul's first step when she became governor, was to appoint Senator Brian Benjamin as her Lieutenant Governor, despite Benjamin’s support for defunding the Police. With that appointment, the message she sends is that she favors protecting the criminals more than the victims and the honest hard-working people of New York State.
As if that were not enough, Governor Hochul has signed into law different pieces of legislations that decriminalize those who have violated their parole and orders law enforcement not arrest people who publicly inject or use drugs, in public.
You should know that according to the NY Post editorial Governor Hochul has concentrated her energy on satisfying the communist, socialist wing in her effort to maintain the governorship next year.
As one highly concerned about this, I’m putting my two (2) cents in this matter. I strongly believe that Gov. Kathy Hochul is making a big mistake when she chooses to ignore New York State’s moderate residents and voters who lean more toward conservative principles. By doing so, Gov. Hochul risks losing the support of people of faith, religious groups, and those who oppose defunding the police. These are people who desire to live in a society where law and order is adhered to. Gov. Hochul should work to ensure that criminals are arrested and held accountable for the crimes they commit. She should not appease the criminals but work to prevent crime and reduce the high rate of violence and criminality that has plagued the City of New York and overall state especially since she took office.
According to the New York Post, Congressman Tom Suozzi of Long Island went to Buffalo (In Hochul’s backyard) to endorse Mayor Byron Brown against the Socialist India Walton. Gov. Hochul has refused to endorse Brown against the Socialist, sending one more message that she doesn't care about law and order and that police officers, not only in the city of New York, but also in Buffalo and across the state will have their hands tied and could face being arrested themselves if they try arrest those who violate our laws. OMG! What a mess!
