Re: Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Resignation

New York, NY – “Gov. Cuomo abused his power and disgraced his office. His resignation signals a new chapter for our state. This Council is eager to support Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, who will become the first woman governor of New York.  It is regretful that this historic milestone was achieved under these tragic circumstances, but we are confident that her years of experience serving New Yorkers will help lead us to better days ahead. 

I once again thank Attorney General Letitia James for the independent report, as well as her team. And I commend the women who came forward to share their stories.”
