New York Farm Bureau

Statement released following Governor Cuomo’s State of the State overview address

The following statement was released by New York Farm Bureau President David Fisher:

“New York faces daunting health and economic challenges, many created by the COVID-19 pandemic that continues to impact our rural communities, farm families and employees. Governor Cuomo’s State of the State overview address highlighted many needs including vaccinating our population quickly and

effectively while also being creative in boosting our economy. Investment in infrastructure and affordable rural broadband are important steps. We also look forward to hearing more from the Governor in the coming days on his plans for green energy, economic development and support of our local food system that was affected greatly this past year. Our farm communities play a valuable role in strengthening this state, and New York Farm Bureau looks forward to working together with the Governor to move New York forward.”
