New York: Hochul promises changes after Cuomo’s resignation

“I think it is very clear that the governor and I were not very close,” said the 62-year-old Democratic Party politician at her first press conference as governor-designate in Albany on Wednesday.

The working atmosphere, which a report under Cuomo had described as “hostile” for women with a “climate of fear”, will change under her leadership and there will also be personnel changes among the employees, promised Hochul, who has been the deputy since 2015 Cuomo is. “At the end of my term of office, whenever that is, nobody will describe my government as a toxic work atmosphere.” Hochul also promised transparency.
