“My thoughts and prayers go to those involved in the abortion clinic fire last week. These horrendous acts of violence in Amherst and Buffalo are utterly disgusting and cannot be tolerated.
"We cannot condone the increase of violence this state has been experiencing. It is time to put a stop to this and fix what Majority lawmakers in Albany seem far more interested in as they blame others for the laundry list of scandals, public safety debacles and economic crises they have created than fixing the problems. I call on Gov. Hochul and local authorities to help protect our residents and put a stop to sudden acts of violence."
