Re: Passing of Former Governor Mario Cuomo

"Governor Cuomo was a true statesman, a gifted public speaker, and a dedicated public servant whose many accomplishments were matched only by his commitment to the people of New York. His legacy will live-on through all that he achieved during three terms as Governor, but also through his talented children, including Governor Andrew Cuomo. I offer my condolences to the entire Cuomo family tonight."

Statement From Senate Co-Leader Dean Skelos

My thoughts and prayers are with Governor Cuomo and his family as they mourn the loss of his father Mario, a former three-term New York Governor and leading voice of the Democratic Party.

Mario Cuomo was a legendary figure in New York politics who chose public service for all the right reasons. He could have run for President or been appointed to the Supreme Court, but he chose to stay and serve the people of New York.

Mario Cuomo used his gift for oratory to speak about his beliefs and ideals with great passion and, in doing so, made a significant impact on the political history of our state and nation.

Taking the the Oath of Office

With my wife Pat at my side, I had the honor of holding my hand on the Bible to take the Oath of Office in both Monroe and Ontario counties today. But this job is not about me, it’s about you. It’s about giving back to a community that has been so good to me and my family. It’s about proving that it is a duty, an honor, and a privilege to serve, and that good people have to be willing to step-up and do it if we are ever going to make Albany work better for our area. Together, that work starts today.
