ALBANY, NY … NYGOP Chair Ed Cox today released the following statement on the new unemployment numbers:
“Governor, where are the jobs?
For the second year in a row, no single area of New York saw a decline in unemployment. Not one. Today, 35 of New York’s counties have unemployment rates above 10%.
“New Yorkers deserve a governor less focused on making New York the ‘progressive capital’ of America and more focused on creating jobs for out-of-work New Yorkers.
“Until Andrew Cuomo gets serious about job creation, all he’s doing is managing the decline of New York.”
