Teachout stuck to the main themes of her campaign: Cuomo supports too many tax breaks for banks, corporations, and the wealthy, she said. And those tax breaks, which benefit Cuomo's biggest campaign donors, are happening at the expense of funding for education, infrastructure, and investment in small business and agriculture, Teachout said.
The crowd responded with frequent applause and cheers (and some boos when she first said the words "Common Core").
"Andrew Cuomo's stealing from our kids is stealing from our present," she said. "And it's stealing from our future."
Below is a clip from Teachout's speech:
Zephyr Teachout, the Fordham University Law professor who's challenging Governor Andrew Cuomo in a Democratic primary later this month, made a campaign stop this morning at Village Gate plaza in Rochester.
