‘Stay New York Tough’: Cuomo Gives Final Remarks as Governor
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York released a prerecorded statement on his final day in office, two weeks after he resigned over allegations of sexual misconduct, and a report from the state attorney general.
Thank you. Thank you for the honor of serving as governor of New York. Thank you for allowing me to represent you. Thank you for empowering me to fight for you. Thank you for trusting me through Covid. Thank you for making New York state the progressive capital of the nation. Thank you for vindicating E.B. White’s words, often quoted by my father, God rest his soul, when he said, quote, “New York is to the nation what the white church spire is to the village, the visible symbol of aspiration and faith, the white plume, saying the way is up.” Thank you for the honor of serving you. And never forget, always stay New York tough, smart, united, disciplined and loving. It’s the essence of what makes New Yorkers so special.
