New York Today: New York Today: The State of Our State
Wednesday: The governor’s annual address, the continuing cold, and health care enrollment.
Good morning on this (somewhat) warmer Wednesday.
While many New Yorkers are still returning from holiday, city and state officials are already pounding the political pavement.
Though Mr. Cuomo has been lauded for progressive victories — like tuition-free college, the legalization of same-sex marriage, a higher minimum wage and paid family leave — he has also faced troubles in office. He has been blamed (and blamed some more) for New York City’s transit crisis. He has also been criticized for his response to sexual harassment allegations against one former senior aide, and for his ties to another aide who will go on trial this month to face corruption charges.
