'Marty Golden has consistently sided with bigotry. He’s supported the surveillance of mosques, supported Trump’s Muslim Ban, and even falsely claimed the 9/11 hijackers came from Bay Ridge. It’s time for a change.'
'What happens is there are so many definitions and so many pieces of legislation I'm not sure what you're talking about.'
'This has got to stop, and hopefully this program will incentivize Good Samaritans to do the right thing.'
'There's no need for me to do anything but sign the bill once they pass it.'
'There is no backup plan,' Golden later told Gothamist/WNYC. 'I'm hoping that between the governor and the Senate itself, I'm sure somehow we're going to wind up back in Albany shortly.'
140 school zones will lose their speed cameras on July 26 unless the governor and state legislators act.
The cameras will likely be turned off next month if no action is taken.
Families who lost loved ones to reckless drivers are calling on Golden and other senate republicans to return to Albany and pass speed camera legislation.
It's so Albany that NYC can't even control its own speed cameras.
In his statement, Katz said he hoped the incident would "not overshadow the work I have done over the years for the public and my constituency."
