For Immediate Release:

Goshen, NY – Today, Alison Esposito, a 25-year veteran of the New York Police Department (NYPD), former candidate for Lieutenant Governor, and candidate for Congress in New York’s 18th Congressional District expressed disappointment in the MTA’s vote on Wednesday to move forward with its daily congestion pricing plan, despite strong public opposition and the devastating impact it will have on many Hudson Valley commuters.

Esposito has been at the forefront in fighting against MTA’s Congestion Pricing Plan from the moment Democrats announced their plan to place yet another tax on the hardworking commuters that reside outside of New York City. As a candidate for Lieutenant Governor, she called on Albany’s leaders to scrap the measure. 

In stark contrast, Congressman Pat Ryan, a House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee member, has a record of inaction on this critical issue. Failing to provide leadership or take any meaningful actions to stop the devastating impact that MTA’s Congestion Pricing plan will have on Hudson Valley residents. 

Alison Esposito issued the following statement: 

Congestion pricing will only deepen the economic pain so many Hudson Valley commuters are already experiencing. MTA’S vote to move forward with congestion pricing ignores the voices of thousands of hard-working New Yorkers who expressed strong opposition to the plan. The fact is congestion pricing is another unnecessary tax that will place a huge burden on hard-working Hudson Valley residents who commute to New York City for work everyday
