In stark contrast to her predecessor and former Gov Andrew Cuomo, NY Governor Kathy Hochul stated on Wednesday that New Yorkers deserve government officials who actually give a damn about the Nursing Home disasters.
Earlier this week, Hochul met with families that lost loved ones in nursing homes due to COVID-19, apologizing to them for the pain caused by the disastrous policies under Cuomo that led to the deaths of over 15,000 seniors in elder care facilities and promising to honor their memories.
In a briefing on Wednesday, Hochul told the media, “I apologized for the pain that those poor families had to endure as a result of their family members contracting COVID in nursing homes, and it was a very emotional meeting. I thanked them for what they’ve done…which is to fight for people in nursing homes. I work with elected officials, you know, they can disagree with me one day and another day they might agree with me, I just approached this whole thing differently, that people deserve to know that their government, listens and actually cares, and gives a damn about them.”
