Assemblyman McDonald: "Terribly Unfortunate" To See Amazon Pull Out

Feb 14, 2019

Saying he's "not exactly a fan" of the online retail giant, New York state Assemblyman John McDonald, a Democrat from the Capital Region, is calling Amazon's decision not to base a new headquarters in Queens "terribly unfortunate." McDonald spoke with WAMC News Thursday about the Amazon news and state budget negotiations. He called the Amazon project a "once in a century opportunity, and unfortunately it looks like it's been blown."
