During her State of the State address today, Gov. Kathy Hochul outlined her blueprint for guiding New York through the COVID-19 pandemic and ushering us into a new era of success and prosperity. Her vision for robust workforce and economic development, help for families seeking child care, assistance for vital small businesses, clear-eyed focus on public safety and health and the importance of key, equitable investments in our infrastructure and residents are exactly what we need here in Monroe County. I thank her for helping protect our public health by providing National Guard troops for Monroe Community Hospital and 330,000 KN-95 masks to frontline essential workers and businesses. I’m grateful for her continued support of the Inner Loop North fill in project, ROC the Riverway and the Aqueduct Reimagined project which will create a central gathering point for our community and helped spur the relocation of Constellation Brands to downtown. I look forward to working in partnership with Gov. Hochul as we seek to build the future the residents of Monroe County and New York state deserve to inherit.
