ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — State and local leaders in New York continue to urge lawmakers in Washington to include pandemic aid to local governments in the next coronavirus aid bill.
On Friday, Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan reached out personally to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call for financial assistance.
