RESOLUTION OF THE GREATER UTICA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CALLING FOR GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO’S RESIGNATION OR IMPEACHMENT
WHEREAS, it is now clear that the Cuomo administration deliberately misled the federal government and the residents of New York State in an attempt to cover up the results his policy decision that directly led to as many as 16,000 Covid fatalities in nursing homes; and
WHEREAS, Governor Andrew Cuomo is now embroiled in additional controversies related to personal misconduct as alleged by at least eleven different individuals, and
WHEREAS, the New York State Attorney General issued a comprehensive and scathing report regarding the Governor’s illegal conduct, both under federal and state law, regarding said individuals, and
WHEREAS, both the Governor and the Legislature are now spending an inordinate amount of time investigating and dealing with the Governor’s professional and personal misconduct, which is drawing much needed attention away from the State’s business;
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that in light of the findings of the State Attorney General’s investigation, the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce reiterates our prior resolution urging for the removal of Governor Andrew Cuomo through either a voluntary resignation or impeachment so that State government can refocus on the opening and rebuilding the state’s economy.
