The Schenectady Gazette did the round-up work to gather reactions to the Governor’s State of the State Address. Some salient responses below.
“Assemblymember John McDonald III, D-Cohoes: “The governor is prioritizing replacement of the Livingston Ave. Bridge between the cities of Rensselaer and Albany, a major regional and upstate rail connector that needs pedestrian and cyclist access.”
Jill Delaney, president and CEO, Discover Albany: “Today’s State of the State remarks by Gov. Hochul continue to position New York State and Albany County as a prime tourism destination for generations present and future. With the completion of the Albany Skyway project, the replacement of the Livingston Avenue Rail Bridge, and increased investments and state commitments in developing destination projects, there is no question that the future of Albany County as the center of tourism in the Capital Region remains bright. Increasing access to Albany County for visitors and tourists, in addition to creating new destinations for those to enjoy, fuels economic activity here in Albany County.”
