Queens elected officials hopeful for New York’s future with Governor Kathy Hochul


The air was filled with hope on Governor Kathy Hochul’s first day as the head of New York state.

At midnight on Tuesday, Aug. 24, Hochul took the oath of office at the State Capitol in Albany as former Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned on Aug. 23 following his highly publicized sexual harassment scandal.

“I’ve already reached out my hand in friendship too many elected officials who are eager for a new relationship with the state,” Hochul said during her first address as governor.
