Statement from NYS Democratic Chairman on Incoming Governor Kathy Hochul

For Immediate Release: August 10, 2021

SHANDAKEN, NY: New York State Democratic Party Chairman Jay S. Jacobs has released the following statement:

"New York will finally have its first female Governor and we could not be in better hands.  From assisting her mother run a transitional domestic violence shelter to helping make the property tax cap permanent, Kathy Hochul has always and relentlessly fought for the people of New York.  Her experience at all levels of government – Town Board Member, County Clerk, Congresswoman, and Lieutenant Governor, makes her uniquely well-equipped to effectively govern the State at this time.  I am confident that incoming Governor Hochul’s empathy, work ethic and authentic concern for the welfare of its citizens will make her an outstanding Governor for our State."
