March 22, 2021 — More than two dozen local elected officials across the state are calling on Andrew Cuomo to resign. In a joint statement released today, they join the 59 Democratic state lawmakers and countless elected officials in federal office to demand that he step down:
“As has become undeniably clear in the last few weeks, Cuomo is failing to govern effectively and move our state out of this crisis.
Allegations of sexual harassment and improper touching make it clear that Cuomo has abused his power.
“His handling of nursing and long-term care facilities data shows that he has lied and violated the values of equitable governance.”
The statement comes as public polling shows more New Yorkers believe he should resign or be impeached following the growing number of allegations against him.
