Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther Statement on Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address

Albany, NY – “Once again, Governor Cuomo has set out an ambitious agenda for the coming year. Working together over the last three years, we have closed $12 billion in deficits in three on-time budgets - all while creating the lowest middle-class tax rate in 60 years. As we look forward to the coming year, I whole-heartedly agree with the Governor that the focus must remain on property tax relief, job creation, and investment in our state’s infrastructure and public education.

I appreciate the Governor’s commitment to public education with the inclusion of the technology initiative. I will work with my colleagues and the Governor to make sure this does not bring an additional burden to struggling school districts, especially more rural districts that do not yet have access to basic services such as broadband.”
