Skip to content petition to remove Cuomo’s name from Watkins Glen State Park sign gains momentum

An effort has been renewed to remove Governor Andrew Cuomo’s name from the sign at Watkins Glen State Park.

This follows his recent resignation over allegations of sexual harassment and a report from the Attorney General’s office.

A petition has gathered over 1,000 signatures to remove the outgoing Governor’s name from the park’s main sign. It’s located at the entrance to the state park’s gorge trail.

Cuomo will officially resign on Aug. 28 and hand the state over to Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, who will be the state’s first female governor.
