Governor Directs Flags to Half-Staff

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has directed that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff from Monday, October 29, until sunset Sunday, November 4, in honor of the victims of the shootings at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and at a supermarket in Jeffersontown, Kentucky; he has also issued a call for peace and civility following a week of horrific shootings and attempted bombings.

"In the wake of these attacks, New Yorkers from all backgrounds condemn these assaults that are contrary to the proud history of our state and our nation," he said. "I am directing that flags be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims of the recent horrific shootings, and I join with all New Yorkers to call for peace and civility and to denounce hate in all its forms."
