ALBANY, NY – Statement from New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul:

I agree with Governor Cuomo’s decision to step down. It is the right thing to do and in the best interest of New Yorkers.  As someone who has served at all levels of government and is next in the line of succession, I am prepared to lead as New York State’s 57th Governor.”
