(WIVB) — New York Democratic County chairs released a joint statement Friday standing with State Chair Jay Jacobs in his call for Governor Cuomo’s resignation.

“We have individually called for his resignation, and now we do so with one voice,” they wrote. “We support President Biden and all our elected officials in their call for Governor Cuomo to resign.”

In the joint statement, officials thanked him for his years of service but “demand that he immediately step down.”

The end of the statement reads, “it’s time to move on.”

Other state and local leaders reacted to the Cuomo situation earlier this week. You can read those statements here.
