County leaders in New York state say Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, has been more available and responsive to their immediate needs during the coronavirus pandemic than Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Schumer held a conference call with the New York State Association of Counties and county executives Monday night to inform the local leaders about the recently passed coronavirus relief packages and to discuss topics related to a future stimulus bill.
