Former local resident glad to have left New York for Tennessee

Just saw New York’s Governor Hochul behind a microphone blasting Republicans and urging them to “get on a bus, get out of town, and go to Florida!”

Doesn’t she realize that New York is hemorrhaging residents because of taxes, outrageous spending, violent crime, “bail reform”, and wind/solar projects that defy environmental regulations? Rational people can’t get out fast enough.

We left Niagara County for Tennessee, only two of the 76,000 in 2019 who said adios to New York State. In addition, between April 2020 and July 2021, more than 365,000 New Yorkers decided to get a U-Haul and see New York in their rear view mirrors.

So yesterday Governor Hochul tells off millions of her state’s residents, informing them that they’re not welcome, and “they don’t represent our values.”

Looking at the dismal direction New York is headed, I’m glad we left when we did.
