Tedisco: Sheldon Silver Should Resign

Statement from Assemblyman Jim Tedisco (R,C,I-Glenville)


“I’ve said for many years that Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver should resign based on his lack of leadership in his support of policies that have been tantamount to political malpractice and have devastated the Upstate economy.”


“And now, further, the news about the five-count federal indictment on federal corruption charges against Silver will be an enormous distraction and prevent him from credibly leading the Assembly, especially as the budget process kicks into overdrive in this high stakes year for New York’s economy and our citizens.”


“Silver should resign as Speaker immediately for the good of our state.”
