White Plains, NY —  This week we celebrated the historic swearing-in of the first woman to serve as chief executive of New York State -- nearly 101 years to the day after ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteed women the right to vote. Governor Kathy Hochul has already shown steady, transparent leadership with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic and eviction prevention. We look ahead to a productive, cooperative relationship with her and our new Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin, who has worked with Gov. Hochul on issues like the opioid epidemic and voting reform.  We are excited to join with new state leadership to address the needs of Westchester residents and all New Yorkers.
