Statement from Rockland County Executive Ed Day
Regarding Gov. Andrew Cuomo Granting Clemency to David Gilbert
With his actions tonight Andrew Cuomo has once again debased himself and the Office of the Governor of the State of New York. As if victimizing 11 women, including members of his own staff, was not despicable enough his commutation of the 75-years-to-life sentence of David Gilbert is a further assault on the people of Rockland and New York State. Andrew Cuomo continues to focus on the well-being of murderers rather than the victims of these horrible offenses.
My thoughts, prayers and sympathy are with the friends and families of the victims of the 1981 Brinks robbery. As Andrew Cuomo leaves the Governor's Office in disgrace I pledge to fight year after year to keep David Gilbert from ever being granted parole.
