Statement from County Executive Pat Ryan on the Announced Resignation of Governor Andrew Cuomo

Posted August 10, 2021

“This is an important moment for New York, and it is thanks to the courage of the many women who came forward to demand accountability and justice for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s reprehensible and abhorrent behavior.

"We will now finally have our first woman Governor, and I am very optimistic about the future of New York under Governor Kathy Hochul’s leadership. She is the real deal - a proven public servant who understands how government works and will lead our State forward with integrity. She has always been there for Ulster County and I am excited to continue to partner with her in service to our County and State.”
