WATERTOWN — The father of Peyton L.S. Morse is questioning the sincerity of Gov. Kathleen C. Hochul after she told reporters on Thursday that she would “be happy” to look into the circumstances of the Watertown firefighter’s death.

The 21-year-old firefighter had a medical emergency on March 3, 2021, at the New York State Academy of Fire Science in Montour Falls, near Watkins Glen. He died nine days later in a Pennsylvania hospital.
