Statement from NYSDC Chair June O’Neill

(NEW YORK, NY) – New York State Democratic Committee Chair June O’Neill issued the following statement on today’s developments in the State Senate:

“Across the state, New Yorkers are struggling with the challenges of the economic crisis. They are fighting to keep their jobs, pay the bills and figure out how to provide for their families. Today, the people of New York, who need their government to work on their behalf now more than ever, were let down when several State Senators opted to act in their own self-interest instead of the interest of the people they were elected to serve.

Governor Paterson and our Democratic leaders have been working tirelessly to make necessary reforms and put our state on the road to recovery. That work was undermined by the petty games we saw today. With less than two weeks left of the legislative session, New Yorkers deserve more than political shenanigans. It is time for our legislators to go back to work and serve the people of our state.”
