Welcome New York's First Woman Governor Kathy Hochul!

Let us all welcome our new Governor, Kathy Hochul! New York State now has an experienced and compassionate leader who will partner with the Legislature and municipalities across the State so that together we can press forward with creative solutions that meet the challenges before us. We must defeat COVID-19, build back our economy, address rent relief, bring back normalcy to our classrooms, and continue to fight for social justice. As chair of the Assembly’s Women’s Task Force, I congratulate our state’s first woman chief executive. I pledge to work with Governor Hochul to protect the interests of all New Yorkers.
