Aug 7, 2011

New York, NY – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) released the following statement on the passing of former New York Governor Hugh Carey:

“Today, we mourn the loss of Governor Hugh Carey, an extraordinary public servant who loved New Yorkers with all of his heart. The way he brought people together to lead our great state through an economic crisis and rescue New York City from the brink of financial collapse should serve as an inspiration for all elected officials today. My thoughts and prayers are with the Carey family.”
