It was the first visit of Governor Kathy Hochul to the New York State Fair in her new office. On Sunday, she took time to visit all the justice centers and unveiled an important monument. The exhibitions are now a memorial for fallen transport workers.
“I want everyone who comes here to read about it, to understand the sacrifices we have to make,” Hukul said. In our great history, if there were no people willing to go out there and do that, we would go back to the horse and the dreadful days.
A new monument to the killed government transport workers was on display at the government exhibition.
“It brings awareness,” says Sally Deming.
Deing lost her husband, Ron, in 2016. He had been a maintenance worker for 30 years.
“If you walk six inches in one way or another, it could mean everything to a road worker,” said Deming. “So cross over, that’s all. Just go. ”
According to Hochul, the state Department of Transportation has lost 56 employees in its history. She said state police as part of Operation Harhat last year gave 770 tickets to drivers, and 1,600 tickets so far this year. But the buyer was also at the fair to mention traditional favorites such as sausage sandwiches.
Hochul saw art in maple cotton candy, milk from the dairy farm, and the Expo Center.
“[I] He spent a lot of time in this community as a student at the University of Syracuse, and as a vice chancellor, and returning to the fair every year, he disappeared last year due to the epidemic, but his recovery felt great. . I really consider Syracuse as my training ground, and it would be great to return here.
