Gov. Mario Cuomo
Legendary former New York state Gov. Mario Cuomo died Thursday – the same day his son, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was sworn in for a second term.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo called off a swearing-in ceremony for his second term that had been planned for Wednesday night, electing to spend New Year’s Eve with his family instead.
Cuomo sounded a triumphant note in his party convention address that cited his successful efforts to pass gay marriage and gun control and his work to boost education investments and fix the economy of upstate New York.
On this Father’s Day weekend, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Saturday unveiled a painting of his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, at the State Capitol.
“There is no more time to waste. It is a time for deeds, not words and results, not rhetoric,” Cuomo said.
On Saturday, Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo begins the job he always sought and few would want.
Andrew Cuomo just smiles at the question: Will you run for president? The Gov.-elect, still nearly two months before he takes office, can’t really avoid the plot line.
