"I was disgusted to learn of racist slurs spray-painted in Saranac Lake recently. This despicable act goes against our values and we will do whatever it takes to help ensure that people feel safe and welcome in their own communities. 

"I am directing the State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to provide the Village of Saranac Lake Police Department with assistance in its investigation and to hold the perpetrators responsible to the fullest extent of the law.

"I've said it before and I will say it again, we have absolutely zero tolerance for bigotry and hate in our state, and we will continue to call it out whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head."
