Hawley issues statement on Le Roy illnesses
Note: Hawley's office issued this press release Wednesday, but I didn't see the email until just now, but thought it still important to post:
Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R, I, C – Batavia) is working with state and local officials to diligently address the health issues facing Western New Yorkers. In the wake of the disturbing developments regarding Tourette's-like symptoms displayed by 12 students attending Le Roy Junior-Senior High School, the assemblyman is doubling down on his efforts to protect the health of the entire Western New York community.
“The strength of our community relies on the health, safety and happiness of Western New Yorkers, and I am committed to making sure that no stone is left unturned in the quest to protect those needs,” Hawley said. “By working with health and environmental officials at the federal, state and local levels, I am pursuing every channel to ensure that we are doing everything in our power to prevent threats to the community’s health.”
The assemblyman has spoken directly with both state Health Commissioner Nirav Shah and state Department of Environmental Commissioner Joe Martens to share his concerns regarding the developing tragedy in Leroy.
“The situation in Le Roy is infinitely tragic, and swift action is imperative,” Hawley continued. “Above all else, it is the duty of public servants to protect our children, seniors and families. Nothing takes priority over the health of our fellow Western New Yorkers.”
I guess it took Dr Drew, E Brockovitch and the medias actions to finally get his attention.
Just another political BS statement, no real sincerity. Beside we have heard more from MS Coxs then anyone else. MS. Brockovitch is no different, no real sincerity. Just wants her name in the limelight.
When one is deeply involved in pursuing designation of a state vegetable and building support for a divided New York State, it often takes a major media jolt to refocus attention.
Did any of you bitch when Congresswoman Hochul made a lame statement? Or is this just a chance to bash a Republican?
Of course they didn't
John - I agree with you. The previous comments exemplify why this has grown. People like them see a boogie man behind every tree. Instead of helping to solve the problem they only know how to throw mud.
Just what we need....a politician getting involved...like that will work.
Republicians or Democrats...doesn't matter, they are all the same.
And some of you say Erin is self serving. My o my....
