“Governor Cuomo’s resignation, as he stated, is the best decision for the people of New York,” said Kathryn Wylde, President and CEO of the Partnership for New York City. “He has many outstanding accomplishments during more than a decade in office. Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul is well equipped to transition to the top office and provide positive leadership for the state’s continued battle against COVID-19 and for economic recovery. The business community looks forward to supporting her administration. We also acknowledge and thank Attorney General Letitia James for her diligence and courage in taking on a difficult assignment that brought the matter to closure.”
