Tague on Member Pay Raise

A statement by Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie) on the New York Pay Commission.

“New Yorkers pay the highest taxes in the country. Albany is one of the most corrupt state capitals. So it makes perfect sense that Albany insiders concocted a massive pay raise for themselves that taxpayers are on the hook for, so they can perpetuate their corrupt state government.

"Where I come from, your earnings are based on work performance. In Albany, earnings are based on backroom deals by the governor and downstate majority leaders. The greedy and delusional mindset of Albany politicians will continue the downward spiral of New York state.”
