There’s a new governor in New York.
At a procedural ceremony at midnight on Tuesday, August 24, 2021, Kathy Hochul was sworn in as the 57th Governor of the State of New York.
She inherits a long list of issues and challenges from former Governor Andrew Cuomo, who left office at midnight.
Gov. Hochul is expected to speak later this morning for the first time as governor.
