Assemblyman Matt Simpson calls for Governor Cuomo’s resignation

Assemblyman Matt Simpson from the 114th Assembly District (R-Horicon) has joined calls for Governor Andrew Cuomo to step down amid multiple controversies. Simpson released the following statement on March 8, 2021:

“After the developments of this weekend, as two more women accused Gov. Cuomo of inappropriate behavior, it is clear that he must resign. He has become too much of a distraction to our important work for the people of New York.

 “If the governor remains defiant in the face of multiple scandals and bipartisan support for his resignation, then he must be impeached. In order to keep the focus on defeating the pandemic, finalizing the budget and working on behalf of our constituents, we can no longer face the daily distractions of scandal from Gov. Cuomo. I stand ready to impeach.”
