Hope for Hochul
Not since the days when Franklin
D. Roosevelt ran the Empire State
in 1932 has New York been led by a
governor situated far outside of New
Roosevelt lived in upstate Hyde
Park, and aft er he was elected president
of the United States, the men
who’ve occupied the Governor’s
Mansion in Albany have all had
strong ties to the New York City metropolitan
area. Th e closest thing New
York has had to an upstate governor
was George Pataki of Peekskill in
Westchester County, who succeeded
Mario Cuomo in 1995.
In less than a fortnight, New York
will be led by its fi rst female governor,
Kathy Hochul, who succeeds the
outgoing Andrew Cuomo. She hails
from Buff alo, which is about 372
miles northwest of the Big Apple.
Th e geographic and cultural diff erences
between these cities might give
some city dwellers pause as to what
kind of leadership they can expect
from soon-to-be Governor Hochul.
We know that Mayor Bill de Blasio
oft en clashed with the outgoing governor,
on squabbles that ranged from
the gravely serious to the utterly petty.
What kind of relationship will develop
between Hochul and a mayor with
only months left in his term, but with
so much work still yet to be done?
We have confi dence that Hochul
will rise to meet the moment — one
that calls for an experienced, skilled
leader willing to give the Empire
State a fresh start and a new approach
toward governing its way out of the
Hochul seems to champion a message
of New York being not upstate
or downstate, but one state — something
that should encourage every
New Yorker. She’s made it her mission
to spend time in every single
county across the state every year
during her time as lieutenant governor
— getting to know the diff erent
leaders, people and way of life in
It’s our hope that Hochul will stick
with that mission going forward and
treat New York with the respect it
deserves. It’s our hope she can fi nd a
way to work with the current mayor,
and the next mayor, to fulfi ll the fi ve
boroughs’ needs to help both the
state and city recover from the brutal
health crisis we’ve faced.
New York City could use a good
relationship with Albany again.
Here’s hoping Hochul will help establish
