Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins spoke with Gov. Andrew Cuomo after Sen. Zellnor Myrie blasted what he said was the governor’s criticism of her, suggesting they were gender and race-based.

Stewart-Cousins, speaking with reporters after a joint budget conference meeting, said she did not believe Cuomo’s criticism was racially charged or due to her being a woman. But she did raise a broader issue she had with Cuomo’s “disparagement” of Senate Democrats.

“I didn’t have a concern about any of these things,” she said. “I had a concern about a constant sort of disparagement of the conference that I addressed.”

Cuomo and Senate Democrats have had an increasingly rocky public relationship. Cuomo lashed out at the conference earlier this year when Amazon pulled the plug on a planned project in Queens that would have created up to 25,000 tied to $3 billion in tax incentives.

Cuomo blamed the conference for nominating an Amazon critic to a board with potential veto power over the deal.

Cuomo further rankled Senate Democrats this week when he suggested they were not yet accustomed to governing in Albany. Senate Democrats gained power for the first time in a decade in November.

Stewart-Cousins, meanwhile, said the conversation, taking place just as the budget season begins a more intense phase this month, allowed things to “move forward.”

“I think it’s important that we are all focused on making sure that we are serving the people of New York state,” she said. “We’re moving forward.”

In a statement, top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa in a statement also indicated the governor’s office was ready to move on as well.

“The whole episode was absurd,” said DeRosa, the secretary to the governor. “Our sole focus is getting things done for New Yorkers and we will challenge any governmental or political position that undermines that or stands in the way of progress.”
