STATEMENT OF COUNTY EXECUTIVE ED DAY ON ARREST OF NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY SPEAKER SHELDON SILVER
"Today's arrest of Sheldon Silver is the latest reminder of the need for term limits in Albany. Ensuring that our elected officials uphold the people's trust is one of our most critical responsibilities. Public service must not be a shortcut to self-enrichment. I commend U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and his team on their dedication to aggressively prosecuting alleged corruption at every level. It's a sad day when criminal charges are brought against any elected official."
