Statement from NYGOP Chairman Nick Langworthy on Cuomo’s Failure to Adequately Prepare for the Storm That Has Left Nearly One Million New Yorkers Without Power

August 6, 2020

“Governor ‘Windbreaker,’ who has never missed an opportunity to take advantage of a storm, has completely dropped the ball. While Andrew Cuomo has been busy lapping up the attention of the national left-wing media and auditioning on the presidential stage, hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers are stuck at home in the dark and sweltering heat. Cuomo is so drunk on his own power and focused on promoting himself that he failed to adequately prepare and direct resources for Tropical Storm Isaias that delivered Sandy-like destruction to New York City, Long Island and the Hudson Valley. Nearly 700,000 New Yorkers are still without power and are being told they won’t have it back for days or even weeks. This is unacceptable and a total failure of leadership that is the direct result of his distraction.”
