TROY, NY (January 5, 2022) – Mayor Patrick Madden issued the following statement in response to Governor Kathy Hochul’s 2022 State of the State Address:
“Governor Hochul laid out an ambitious, comprehensive agenda in her first State of the State Address, detailing a bold vision for building a brighter future for all New Yorkers. From her proposals to rebuild New York’s physical and digital infrastructure, provide financial assistance to small businesses, confront climate change, tackle gun violence, and improve access to affordable housing, Governor Hochul continues to demonstrate why she is the right person to lead our state. I am eager to work closely with the governor to advance policies and proposals that will build stronger, more equitable communities and best position cities like Troy to grow and thrive in the coming decade.”
