“Westchester County, and my administration, stand ready to work with incoming Governor Kathy Hochul when she assumes the governorship later this month.  For years, incoming Governor Hochul has been a welcomed presence in Westchester County.  She is well qualified to lead New York State in this immediate crisis. 

“Also, for all New Yorkers, let us recognize this historic moment – that New York will for the first time in our history have a female Governor.  Times have changed - as they should. 

“We welcome incoming Governor Hochul, and look forward to cooperation between Westchester County and New York State in moving together in the right direction.”
