Before boarding a plane to embark on his second relief mission to Puerto Rico, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was joined by OU Executive Vice President Allen Fagin and other strategic partners to announce new water and utility relief initiatives that will help address the islands’s water and utility crises.
Allen Fagin was quoted in the Governor’s release, saying: “Right now, Puerto Rico needs our help more than ever and I am so grateful that Governor Cuomo has once again stepped up to the plate to deliver. Resources, dedicated personnel and funding for water treatment systems are critical to the continued recovery efforts on the island. This funding will be key to helping Puerto Rico fix their damaged and failing infrastructure, helping to secure clean water on the island for residents. I am confident that, under Governor Cuomo’s leadership, New York will continue to help our neighbors as they work on rebuilding their communities across the island.”
