New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was in Buffalo Wednesday and after his appearance spoke to the WNY media. He was asked about the efforts to secure a new lease agreement with the club and keeping the team in Buffalo for the long term. Here was his response.
“The Bills are very important not just to Western New York, but the entire state,” Cuomo said. “We want to keep the Bills here. I’m looking forward to being part of a cooperative effort to keep them here. Obviously money is tight. We all know that. The taxpayers are not in position to be shelling out more money. We’re going to great lengths to bring efficiencies to this state budget and I’ve cut the budget. But the Bills are important and I want to be a big part of keeping them here.”
