Cuomo: "Be Afraid"

Tools

Some tough words came Monday from New York Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo during his visit to Tupper Lake.

"If I was a state worker and just a resident of the state, I would be afraid of what is coming ahead," said Cuomo, who has said he wants to cut government by 20 percent when he takes office.

He made the remark following a visit to the Sunmount Developmental Disabilities Services Office and campus.

Cuomo has been touring state facilities since being elected.

He has said he plans to consolidate some public services, even if it means cutting jobs.

Duing Cuomo's visit to Tupper Lake, he said people have to keep in mind that layoffs aren't just about numbers, they're about families.

At the same time, he said the only way the state is going to make a recovery is if taxes are cut to attract business and industry to New York.
