Briccetti statement on the passing of former Governor Hugh Carey

ALBANY— In times of fiscal crisis, Governor Carey had the courage to take strong action when action was needed. The work he did should be remembered and honored today and we hope that as we continue to revive New York's economy from its current crisis we can endeavor to have the courage to make the hard choices that Governor Carey did, said Heather Briccetti, acting-president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc.
