Governor Kathy Hochul has a lot to prove in a short period of time if she wants votes for a full term

In only three weeks Governor Kathy Hochul has faced numerous challenges and taken charge immediately.

She has worked to extend the eviction moratorium, mandated masks in schools, is pushing to mandate vaccines where they’re needed most, and has navigated a natural disaster.

A recent poll shows that her messages of not being Cuomo are getting across, and New Yorker’s look forward to seeing what she can do, despite being relatively unknown before now.




New Yorker’s appear to support masks and vaccine mandates, but a group of healthcare workers recently won a preliminary victory after going to court over filing religious exemptions to not get the vaccine.

Hochul has a lot on her shoulders and a lot to prove with the primary in June, and she plans to run for a full term.
