“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found it safe to return to 5 day a week in-person education for our students. Based on the CDC experts’ findings I am calling for the immediate resumption of full 5 day a week in-person education for our New York students following the prescribed safety protocols. There is no reason to further delay this return — our students need to be back to normal now. The Departments of Health and Education must get to work to expedite this.”

STATEMENT FROM ASSEMBLYMAN SCHMITT REGARDING SEAN MALONEY HIRING OF ANTI-POLICE EX-GANG MEMBER

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I,LBT,SAM-New Windsor) released the following statement following reports that the new senior advisor to Rep. Sean Maloney at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is an anti-police ex-gang member who called the Capitol police White Supremacists and believes looting is a necessary form of protest:

“Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney has demonstrated incredibly poor judgment in appointing Dyjuan Tatro to serve as his senior advisor for diversity and inclusion at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

“Beyond Mr. Tatro’s violent, gang-related past for which he served a lengthy prison sentence, his public statements labeling Capitol Police officers “white supremacists,” calling the rioting and looting that occurred last summer “a VITAL form of social PROTEST” and equated police reform with reviving Nazism, evidence a clear hostility toward the brave men and women in blue who serve and protect our communities.

“While Congressman Maloney was once considered a moderate, he has become increasingly radicalized, to the point where his views no longer represent the values shared by Hudson Valley residents. While Maloney and his team may argue that Mr. Tatro is “a national leader in the bipartisan movement to reform our criminal justice system,” his disgusting statements are clearly and vehemently opposed by the residents of New York’s 18th Congressional District, who include thousands of men and women who serve or have served in the NYPD.

“The fact of the matter is that nearly 500 NYPD officers were shot, stabbed, struck by motor vehicles, assaulted with rocks, and otherwise injured during last summer’s riots, as they sought to protect others.

“While I certainly support giving a second chance to those who work hard, invest in themselves, and change their lives for the better, these statements and the context in which they were made, call into question both Congressman Maloney’s decision-making and the team he has assembled to advise Democratic Members of Congress.”

Washingtonville, NY — (2/11/2021) Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I,LBT,SAM- New Windsor) has released the following statement regarding the late breaking bombshell New York Post report that the most senior aide to Governor Cuomo admitted to hiding nursing home death data to prevent federal investigators from finding out. The admission was captured on audio recording during a private meeting featuring three Democratic State Senators and Assembly members.

“The Attorney General must immediately commence a criminal investigation and charges must be brought against anyone, including those at the highest level of state government, found to be involved in this conspiracy.”

ASSEMBLYMAN COLIN SCHMITT QUESTIONS NYC MAYOR BILL de BLASIO IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE BUDGET HEARING

Video Link: https://youtu.be/I63M5QX6bAI

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I,LBT,SAM- New Windsor) today questioned New York City Mayor Bill de Blaso in the Local Government Committee Budget Hearing. In this hearing Assemblyman Schmitt asked Mayor de Blasio about concerns many Hudson Valley residents who are city commuters have raised about safety in the City and also about a lack of morale within the NYPD due to failed city political leadership.

Schmitt, who serves as Ranking Member of the Assembly Local Governments committee, got as many questions in as possible despite the majority unceremoniously reducing time allotted for ranking members to ask questions during the budget hearing. The time reduction was used to protect de Blasio from facing additional tough questions and happened without notice.

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt stated, “Many of my constituents are commuters to New York City working across all industries including countless who are first responders serving as members of the FDNY and NYPD. I have heard countless stories from local commuters about safety and security concerns in New York City with an explosion of crime and violence this is occuring. Just today I received an email from a constituent describing how her husband has commuted for 38 years from Orange County to NYC and this is the first time he has feared for his life. I also hear from many about morale issues in the NYPD. These heroes know how to keep our city safe but political leaders have handcuffed them from doing their job. I asked Mayor de Blasio about these concerns that he has created and how he needs to fix them. I will keep standing up for my constituents, all law enforcement, our safety and values in Albany and at the highest levels.”

ASSEMBLYMAN COLIN SCHMITT URGES GOVERNOR NOT TO ACCEPT ‘KASHMIR AMERICAN DAY’ RESOLUTION

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt (R,C,I,LBT,SAM- New Windsor) has sent a letter to Governor Cuomo urging him to not accept the Assembly resolution declaring February 5th as ‘Kashmir American Day’. Assemblyman Schmitt has been contacted by concerned constituents who feel this resolution is a slight to their Indian heritage. Assemblyman Schmitt stands with the members of the Indian American community by leading the charge to ask that the Governor not recognize this resolution.

Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt stated, “On behalf of many constituents and New Yorkers, especially those of Indian American heritage, I am urging the Governor to not accept, adopt or approve in any fashion the recent Assembly resolution seeking to declare February 5th as ‘Kashmir American Day.’ It is in direct defiance of the culture and people of India, both ancestral and immigrants, to recognize Kashmir as separate. Many Indian Americans are proud to have come from Kashmir and Jammu, and it is an insult to their heritage and culture to set them apart from their Indian roots as this resolution seeks you to do.”

Full text of the letter:

Dear Governor Cuomo:

I am writing on the behalf of my constituents and many New Yorkers who are concerned about a recent Assembly resolution calling for you to declare February 5th ‘Kashmir American Day’ in New York State.

The move to recognize this day is offensive to New Yorkers, particularly our Indian American neighbors. Indian Americans have played a crucial role in the fabric of our nation and continue to make a positive impact each and every day. Over 700,000 Indian Americans live in the New York City census region alone. Our nation shares strong ties with our allies and friends in India and New York should take no action that does not fully recognize Kashmir as an integral and enduring part of India.

It is in direct defiance of the culture and people of India, both ancestral and immigrants, to recognize Kashmir as separate. Many Indian Americans are proud to have come from Kashmir and Jammu, and it is an insult to their heritage and culture to set them apart from their Indian roots as this resolution seeks you to do.

I urge you to not accept, adopt or approve this resolution in any manner, in solidarity with our proud Indian American New Yorkers and friends.

For further assistance please contact my district office at (845) 469-6929.

Sincerely,

Colin J. Schmitt
Member of Assembly
99th District

Letter attached.

Colin Schmitt is committed to public service. Colin is a member of the U.S. Army National Guard and Assemblyman for the 99th NYS Assembly District which includes the Town of Stony Point in Rockland County and The Towns of Wawayanda, Goshen, Hamptonburgh, Chester, Blooming Grove, New Windsor, Cornwall, Highlands, and Woodbury in Orange County.
