Governor Cuomo Directs Flags to Half-Staff in Honor of Senator Jose Peralta
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff in honor of Senator Jose Peralta from today until interment. The Governor's statement on Senator Peralta's passing is available here.
"The family of New York continues to mourn the sudden passing of Senator Jose Peralta," Governor Cuomo said. "Senator Peralta was a tireless advocate for Queens and for all New Yorkers, including our immigrant communities. His support for the DREAM Act in particular has been instrumental in our fight to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to an affordable college education. I am directing that flags be flown at half-staff in honor of Senator Peralta and his service to the people of New York."
