Kathy Hochul was confirmed as the 57th governor of New York at 12 PM Tuesday — leaving a mark on the world as the primary woman to be the state’s chief executive.
The 62-year-old longtime community worker was confirmed by Chief Judge Janet DiFiore at a private ceremony in the state Capitol building.
“Regarded to be formally confirmed as New York’s 57th Governor,” Hochul tweeted. “Anticipating the full swearing-in ceremony with my family sometime early this evening, and tending to individuals of New York sometime in the afternoon.”
Hochul, a Buffalo local, succeeds shamed previous Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the wake of serving under him as lieutenant governor since 2015.
Cuomo surrendered in the wake of various sexual harassment charges after over 10 years in charge in Albany.
Hochul will later hold a formal swearing in the state Capitol working at 10 a.m.
The new governor will then, at that point meet with Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins (D-Yonkers) and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx).
She is then planned to convey a virtual location to general society at 3 p.m. Tuesday.
Hochul accepted her BA from Syracuse University, and a law degree from the Columbus School of Law at Washington, DC’s Catholic University.
Her vocation in governmental issues traces all the way back to the mid ’90s, and incorporates stretches as the Erie County Clerk and as the Representative of New York’s 26th Congressional District.
