Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on Assembly Leadership

“The New York State Assembly must move promptly to put leadership in place that can get a budget completed before April 1 in order to prevent further loss of confidence in our state government. It appears that Assemblyman Carl Heastie will be the next Speaker and, after many years of working closely with him on issues of importance to the business community, I believe that he will be a strong and responsible leader. Carl is not only a smart political strategist, but also understands complex fiscal and economic issues, which is a combination of qualities that prepare him well for this new role.”
