Statement from Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre on Incoming Governor Kathy Hochul

“Governor Cuomo’s resignation was the right decision for New Yorkers. This moment demands principled, competent leadership and that is exactly what Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul will bring to the Executive Mansion. I have had the pleasure of working closely with Incoming Governor Hochul on a variety of important issues, and I could not be more excited to continue that work with her as New York’s first female governor. Together, we will continue fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, lifting children and families out of poverty and moving New York forward to brighter days ahead.”
