Legislator Flotteron Fights for Needed Changes to “Bail Reform” Legislation

Today, we officially sent a letter out to Governor Cuomo, Speaker of the Assembly, Senate Majority Leader, Assembly Minority Leader and Senate Minority Leader regarding our disapproval of the recently enacted “bail reform.” We are very concerned for the safety of our constituents, Long Islanders and New Yorkers as a whole.

 

We looked for unanimous agreement from all our Suffolk County Legislators but unfortunately only one of our colleagues from the Democratic Party chose to support this memorandum.

 

I was hoping to get full support from all the Legislators. Unfortunately, this partisanship needs to stop on every level of government. We need to pay more attention to the needs and safety of all our residents, law enforcement and first responders. 

 

I feel as a resident and as an elected official, we all need to speak up on the hastily executed “bail reform” which has caused havoc within our communities.

 

The lack of acknowledgement of the severity of the present “bail reform” legislation troubles me and should trouble all New Yorkers!

 

The majority political party in power that controls the State and County are not doing their jobs with the lack of action being taken to rectify this serious injustice. The elected in support of this legislation have shown their lack of concern for law enforcement and our legal system.

 

I hope Governor Cuomo and the other elected officials acknowledge the seriousness of their actions and make the needed changes immediately.
