New Yorkers deserve a leader who will restore their faith in their government, and as soon as you are legally authorized, it is imperative that you take immediate action regarding the widespread corruption in and about New York’s System of Justice.
You should know that since 2008, now Co-Governor Andrew Cuomo and Co-Governor Joe Percoco have been fully aware of the extent of the corruption of New York’s “ethics” oversight entities. They advised that they “couldn’t do anything for political reasons.” Imagine that, huh?
GET TO KNOW GOVERNOR KATHY HOCHUL:
Governor Hochul is the 57th Governor of New York, and the first female Governor in New York State history.
Prior to her election as Lieutenant Governor, she served as a Group Vice President for Strategic Relationships at M&T Bank, serving as liaison for community matters and significant economic development projects.
From 2011 to 2013, then Congresswoman Kathy Hochul served in the House of Representatives from New York’s 26th Congressional District. There she earned a reputation for taking on the tough fights for Western New York and working to strengthen our economy, create good-paying jobs, relieve the burden of student debt, fight for farmers and small businesses, and take care of our veterans.
Prior to her time in Congress, Hochul was the highest-ranking female elected official in Erie County while serving as County Clerk from 2007 to 2011. During her tenure as clerk, she successfully eliminated unnecessary requirements for new license plates, improved the customer experience at the Department of Motor Vehicles, and streamlined internal operations while saving taxpayer dollars.
Governor Hochul also served 14 years as a Hamburg Town Councilmember.
In 2006, Governor Hochul joined her mother and aunt in establishing the Kathleen Mary House, a transitional home for victims of domestic violence, and served on its Board of Directors. Moreover, she served as a member of the Board of Trustees at Immaculata Academy as well as at a local library and co-founded the Village Action Coalition to help local businesses survive competition from
big box stores.
Governor Hochul holds a bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University and a JD from Catholic University in Washington, DC. At the start of her legal career, she worked at a large firm in Washington and later as in-house counsel to a major corporation engaged in homeland security. Hochul then gave up private practice for public service. She was asked to serve as a legal counsel and legislative assistant to Congressman John LaFalce (D-NY) and later to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
