Where is Lt. Gov. Carly Leroy?
Is it true that Carly LeRoy, Lieutenant Governor, just left?
The Observer randomly asked delegates how they felt about something that is not actually true, in an homage to a Jimmy Kimmel sketch.
The question was this: ‘How do you feel about Lieutenant Governor Carly LeRoy leaving her position and Y&G with no Lieutenant Governor next year?”
Delegates provided a variety of responses.
Priyanka Dave, a representative from Neuqua Valley, was baffled.
“Um, I did not hear about that,” Dave said.
Micah Weiss, a lobbyist from Williamsville, demonstrated similar confusion.
“I had no idea,” Weiss said.
Emily Hergert, a committee chair from Williamsville, expressed concern for the Lieutenant Governor.
“I feel if they really want the position in the first place…. they should be prepared for whatever comes at them,” Hergert said.
However, Jake Purcell, a representative from Andrew, was confident he had heard the Lieutenant Governor was leaving.
“I heard about that. I think that was pretty bogus. I don’t think that was the right move for her to do,” Purcell said.
Ahabb Fisher, a lobbyist from Williamsville, was not fooled.
“She didn’t resign,” Fisher said.
Responses were so varied that we have to wonder: do the Y&G delegates really know what is going on?
