NYS Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul.

ALBANY, NY — August 11, 2021 — Good afternoon and thank you for being here. I spoke with Governor Cuomo yesterday, and he pledged his full support for a smooth transition. And I thanked him for his service to our state. Regarding his decision to step down, I believe it is appropriate and in the best interest of the State of New York. And while it was not expected, it is a day for which I am prepared.

I’ve already spoken with Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, Speaker Carl Heastie, labor, business, faith leaders, other state elected officials, as well as our tri-state Governors. I look forward to working with each and every one of them and all of you to build on the progress that we’ve already started.

Over the next two weeks, I will continue meetings with current and potential cabinet officials. I’ll build out my senior staff. And I’ll do what I’ve always done. I will travel the state to meet New Yorkers, to listen to them, to assure them that I’ve got their backs. And I will take their concerns and bring them back to our State Capitol, and work with our partners in every level of government to come to solutions. People will soon learn that my style is to listen first, then take decisive action.

So in 13 days, I will officially become the 57th Governor of the State of New York. And shortly thereafter, I look forward to delivering an address to all New Yorkers to lay out my vision for the great State of New York. But make no mistake, our work has already begun, and I know this year and a half has been so challenging for families and businesses across our state. And sometimes it doesn’t feel like it’s getting easier. The Delta variant is still raging, and it’s going to take all of us to defeat it. Our children are heading back to school soon. There’s a lot of anxiety from the moms and dads I speak to, and the teachers as well. It’s going to take all of us working together to keep our children safe, our teachers safe, and anyone who works in a school safe. Small businesses are just starting to bounce back into an uncertain world. We need to reassure them that they’ll be okay. And our workers are once again debating whether they should even go back to their jobs, or go back to their offices, go back to their factories. Is it safe enough?

But I know New Yorkers. They are hardwired to persevere and to prevail. And the promise I make to all New Yorkers, right here and right now, I will fight like hell for you every single day, like I’ve always done and always will. Thank you very much. I look forward to your questions.

  1. These people gave us Criminal-Justice reform ( no bail) . Cuomo signed off on it but who put it together! Cuomo isn’t the only one that should be out of there. “Power does not corrupt, fools, however, if they get into a position of power corrupt power”.

  2. Wait till the truth comes out Hochul is another phony politician. I saw Republicans Kim being interviewed and he said their is no way she didn’t know what was going on with Cuomo, and not a peep out of her mouth.

  3. Will Hochul pick Cousins? Many say she has no reason to accept that position. Right now she has tremendous power and zero responsibility.

    1. Cousins is on the short list
      Cousins is no spring chicken this is a perfect retirement place for her.
      Many in the 35th Senate want to see her go she’s been in the Senate for 16 years new blood is needed.
      There’s a large bench in Yonkers
      Chris Johnson , cousins protégée
      Shanae Williams , carried Yonkers by 70% in last election
      Tasha Diaz , hardest working Councilwoman
      Corazon Pineed , the only elected Latina in Yonkers
      Lakisha Collins Bellamy’s 30 point big victory over khader makes her a contender
      Ken Jenkins , the number 2 man in County Government
      Lorraine Lopez, former Councilwoman and powerful Latina
