Statement from Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville) On NYS Court of Appeals Redistricting Decision

“The Courts have spoken and they agree with what I said when the Majority first passed these redistricting maps. This was never really a redistricting; it was a savage attack on our democracy where the Majority used the nuclear option to ignore the will of voters who wanted an independent redistricting process. Now, I hope a special court-appointed master will follow the guidelines of the constitution and develop districts where voters pick their elected officials and not where elected officials get to pick who should be on the ballot before voters.”

Statement from Senator Jim Tedisco on the Proposed Legislative Redistricting

“After what my Democrat progressive colleagues did today, the Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves! It’s nothing short of treachery and the essence of evil as to what representative democracy should look like by ignoring the will of the voters who wanted independent redistricting. This is a total slap in the face to the citizens of New York State, particularly our Upstate residents, who I feel sorry for. What the Democrats couldn’t do fair and square through the ballot box they’re scheming to do now through gerrymandering to build a bigger power base in New York City. I’ve fought them before and I’ll fight hard for my Upstate constituents again!” said Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville).

Statement from Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville) on NYS Assembly Judiciary Report on Andrew Cuomo

“While it’s a day late and a dollar short of the state legislature being able to impeach Andrew Cuomo and ban him from ever holding public office again in New York State, the Assembly Judiciary Committee’s report confirms what we’ve known for some time: that Andrew Cuomo was a terrible Governor and ran the office like an entitled despot. Hopefully, the damning evidence in this report of what I believe is criminal activity and an abuse of his oath of office will help local, state and federal authorities prosecute Cuomo to the full extent of the law. We still need justice for all those individuals that his actions negatively impacted and the families of the thousands of nursing home residents who lost their lives that he tried to cover-up so he could get rich with a $5.1 million book of fiction that falsely portrayed himself as the COVID slayer when he was really the COVID purveyor.”

Statement from Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville)

“The newest allegations of sexual harassment against Governor Cuomo reaffirm what I said last week, that we need a truly independent investigation by the Attorney General or an independent prosecutor and not one run by a Cuomo apologist.”. “These serious and disturbing allegations coupled with the criminal investigation by the...

Statement from Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville) on Breaking News of FBI, U.S. Attorney’s Investigation into the Cuomo Nursing Home Cover-up

“Breaking news tonight by the Times Union that the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn is investigating the Cuomo Administration’s cover-up of the deaths of about 15,000 New Yorkers in state-regulated nursing homes is welcome news that I hope will help get to the bottom of this deadly scandal and start the process of bringing closure to families who lost their loved ones to the coronavirus.”

Statement from Senator Jim Tedisco (R,C-Glenville) on Bombshell NY Post Story

“Cuomo aide admits they hid nursing home data so feds wouldn’t find out”. “Tonight’s bombshell New York Post article about a closed-door meeting Governor Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, held yesterday with six Democratic state legislators admitting to a cover-up in hiding the nursing home data sought by the Justice Department and my state legislative colleagues, is shocking. Rather than apologize for the cover-up and any role the Cuomo Administration may have played in the deaths of 15,000 New Yorkers from the coronavirus in nursing homes, Ms. DeRosa instead gave a mea culpa for putting the Democratic legislators in an inconvenient ‘political position.”
