It’s time for voters to make changes in New York

It never ceases to amaze me when politicians divert attention from themselves and bring focus to a different topic.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he is “ashamed” that this country failed to help Puerto Rico recover faster from last year’s hurricane.

Actually, he should be ashamed at the conditions in Upstate New York.

Economic development, government spending and taxes are deplorable. Utility rates are ridiculous with a delivery fee that costs more than what is used.

He also spent finances on “I Love NY” signs that now have to be removed due to not adhering to federal highway rules.

It’s time to focus on elections and begin to make changes in New York State.

It’s a known fact that Upstate New York is constantly neglected in order for New York City to thrive.
