To the editor:

Why is no one talking about the FACT that Kathy Hochul lied to every resident of New York state about the “Mask Mandate”? Calls to her office by business owners requesting written copies of the Mandate resulted in TRUTH, that there IS NO MANDATE or EXEC ORDER! According to Hochul’s Aides, the new Mask-Wearing Order is merely a “Recommendation.” At the PEAK of the Christmas Shopping Season, already struggling businesses are now being hit with the drop in business due to masking, and no one is telling them that there is NO NEED to require masks in their businesses AT ALL! So, WHERE is the Media on this? What Hochul has done is inexcusable and tyrannical!
