O’Donnell Statement on Kathy Hochul Becoming New York’s Next Governor

NEW YORK — Today, following Governor Hochul’s swearing in, Assembly Member O’Donnell released the following statement:

“Today is a proud moment for New York as we welcome our first ever woman governor.

Whether serving in Congress, Erie, or Hamburg, Governor Hochul has made it her mission to show up for the communities she serves. She will fight just as hard for big, long term policy goals as for immediate solutions to local problems.

I am honored to work with someone who has shown a commitment to serving the public at every level of government. I have every confidence in her ability to build a fairer, more equitable New York moving forward.”
