Allegany County Democrats Issue Statement About Rep. Reed And Gov. Cuomo

April 3, 2021

Statement From Allegany County Democrats:

Allegany Co. Democrats Support Truth and Justice

Belmont, NY — The values of our county committee, and by extension our party, are simple — opportunity, equality, and fairness under the law for all people. We are finally in an era where women are encouraged and supported when they speak up about sexual harassment. In all instances we wish to see the law upheld and justice done.

As regards the accusations against Governor Cuomo, we support Attorney General James’ investigation and trust it will uncover the truth and lead to justice.

As regards the admitted sexual misconduct by Rep. Tom Reed, we believe the House Ethics Committee must follow its charter and launch an investigation immediately.

In both cases, we stand for truth and justice. If these men are guilty, they must not be allowed to remain in public office.

The Allegany County Democratic Committee is the official governing body for the County Party, working toward broader representation by Democrats at the local, state, and national levels.
