Who Wants to Tell Them?… New Yorkers Beg Hochul to Do Something About Soaring Crime After Election
Newly elected New York governor Kathy Hochul
New Yorkers are urging Governor Hochul to do something about the soaring crime rate in New York City now that the midterm election is over.
New Yorkers were so upset about the situation in the state that they reelected all of their top Democrat officials on Tuesday night.
They just don’t get it.
The New York Post reported:
Fed-up New Yorkers begged Gov. Kathy Hochul to get crime under control after her surprisingly close win in an “uninspiring” gubernatorial election — where she routinely downplayed concerns about rising crime in the Big Apple.
“People in New York complain about the high crime and crime in the subway, so why did they vote for Hochul?” Steve Bakali, 70, told The Post Wednesday morning outside of the 72nd Street subway stop, a day after the Democrat edged out Republican Lee Zeldin for her first full term.
“Now that Hochul has won, her priority needs to be do something about the crime in the subway,” he added.
“Hochul has the power to clean up the subway, I just hope she does.”
Even Hochul supporters are pleading with the incumbent Democrat — who took office in August 2021 — to wise up and take action.
