OUT OF TOUCH WITH HUDSON VALLEY RESIDENTS
TUXEDO, NY – Chele Chiavacci Farley (R-Orange County) released the following statement in response to Sean Patrick Maloney's recent interview with WAMC New York, where he declared his support for impeaching President Trump:
“Sean Patrick Maloney has once again demonstrated that he is out of touch with the values and priorities of Hudson Valley residents by publicly indicating that he would “press the green button” on any impeachment proceedings initiated by the Judiciary Committee against the President. Impeachment is a drastic step that is not supported by the American people; nevertheless, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler told CNN’s Erin Burnett last week that his committee’s investigation will move forward and should be considered “formal impeachment proceedings”. Instead of partisan politics, Congressman Sean Maloney should be focused on the priorities of local families including investing in our deteriorating roads and bridges, protecting our local lakes and drinking water supply, and helping local farms and small businesses create new jobs. By embracing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist Green New Deal, and announcing his support for impeaching the President, Congressman Sean Maloney has again embraced the radical left wing of his party and shown that he no longer represents the mainstream views of the people of this district."
