It will be a New Year's Eve and Day with few politicians for Andrew Cuomo and Robert Duffy. Only outgoing Governor Davis Paterson and Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings will be on hand for the mansion dinner and low key swearing in at the Capitol on Saturday.
I definately like the understated return of the Cuomo family to power. The last thing New Yorkers want to see is business as usual pomp.
Mr. Cuomo comes a week after the Census Bureau delivered the bad news that NY is losing two more Congressional seats because despite NYC being the immigrant point of entry, too many others are fleeing the Empire State for greener, less taxed pastures.
I will be listening intently to Mr. Cuomo's remarks from the Capitol. We all should...There is a lot riding on his ability to change the direction this state has been on.
A toast for Andy: Cuomos set to return to governor's mansion on New Year's Eve after 16 years away
