Gov. Kathy Hochul will take office Sunday afternoon, becoming the first woman to serve a four-year term as governor of New York.
Hochul takes office in August 2021 following the then government. Cuomo resigned amid allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct.
She was elected by voters in November, defeating Republican challenger Lizeldin.
New York City and state political reporter Rebecca Lewis joins NY1 to talk about the history being made by the state’s first female governor.
Lewis also addressed what to expect in Hochul’s Jan. 10 State of the State address.
