Assemblyman Steve Katz, R-Yorktown, released a statement this afternoon, calling his marijuana arrest “an unfortunate incident.”
Here’s the statement:
“In light of the unfortunate incident that occurred, I am compelled to address it briefly.
First, I will not let this incident impede my public service and my calls for real mandate relief, a better economic climate and better services for those in need in New York.
This should not overshadow the work I have done over the years for the public and my constituency.
I am confident that once the facts are presented that this will quickly be put to rest.”
