Assemblymember Roberts Calls for Speaker Silver to Step Down

In order to continue with the work of the New York State Assembly, I am calling for Sheldon Silver to stand up and step down from his role as Speaker. My hope was that we wouldn’t let this become a distraction to the critical work ahead but instead it has taken precedence and we cannot allow that.

The People’s business (i.e. my commitment to serving Central New York — and remaining focused on representing the needs of our constituents) must come first.
