Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul is expected to hold the first press conference since Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that he would resign effective in two weeks.
Hochul is set to become the first female governor in New York’s history. She will fill the remainder of Cuomo’s term, which runs through 2022.
“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,” Hochul said after Cuomo’s announcement to resign. “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.“
The press conference is going to be streamed at 2 p.m. FingerLakes1.com will provide video stream information below as the press conference nears.
