This is a statement from Congressional candidate Chele Farley.
"Hudson Valley residents have been subsidizing the MTA for years, shouldering a gap between what we receive in service and what we pay into the agency each year. Now we’re at risk of Metro-North service being drastically cut or eliminated entirely due to lack of funds.
Today I spoke with Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus and he agreed with me that this latest announcement that we may lose the Port Jervis and Pascack Valley lines is absolute madness and must be halted. We need emergency federal aid, and to reopen the economy so that ridership may increase again.
My opponent, Sean Maloney, sits on the House Transportation Committee and yet has failed to secure the federal aid needed to save our MTA service. As a member of Congress with a background in engineering, I vow to prioritize our transportation and infrastructure and will negotiate a better deal for my constituents and the MTA."
