Senator Shelley B. Mayer's Statement on Governor Kathy Hochul

“Today is a new day for the State of New York. Governor Kathy Hochul is smart, tough, determined, with high ethical standards and a strong moral compass. She has served in local, county, state and federal government positions and values the insights and experiences of local leaders – listening before making decisions. Governor Hochul knows New York State well, especially Westchester County. She has been to our cities, towns and villages on numerous occasions – many times with me. She cares about the challenges facing our communities. I look forward to her leadership and a collaborative relationship between her and the members of the Senate and the Assembly, so that we can deliver for the people of New York State.”
