In the course of 14 years, the Empire State has had Govs. Eliot Spitzer (2007 to 2008), David Paterson (2008 to 2010) and Andrew Cuomo (2011 to 2021) leave office in scandal. Now, perhaps more than ever, New York needs someone to steady the ship as it continues to deal with another spike in coronavirus cases because of variants, a homeless crisis, a rise in crime and a lack of affordable housing that could lead to thousands of tenants in the Big Apple and across the state to being evicted from their homes.

After the Briarwood-born and Queens-bred Cuomo resigned from office on Aug. 11, 16 months shy of finishing the end of his third term (Dec. 31, 2022), and losing all the momentum from his early handling of Covid-19, which could have set him up for a possible presidential bid for 2024, because of allegedly sexually harassing 11 women, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will succeed him in two weeks.
