Roosevelt Islander Online: Andrew Cuomo Resigns, Meet Next Governor Of New York Kathy Hochul

Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul
will take over as NY State Governor 

 following the resignation by
Governor Andrew Cuomo, effective two weeks from yesterday. 

What, if anything, will the replacement of Mr Cuomo with Ms Hochul mean for
Roosevelt Island residents who are governed by the Roosevelt Island Operating
Corp (RIOC) which is
controlled by the NY State Governor’s Office? Will there be any staff or policy

Time will tell but note that Lieutenant Governor Hochul is no stranger to
Roosevelt Island. 

Lieutenant Governor Hochul is seen seated in 2015 picture with NYC Council
Member Ben Kallos, Hudson Related real estate developer David Kramer and
former RIOC President Charelene Indelicato at the now closed Coach Scot’s Ice
Cream parlor.

I interviewed Ms Hochul in July 2016 during her visit to FDR Four Freedoms
Park and the Cornell Tech construction site.
