We Look Forward to Working with Governor Hochul

Brothers and Sisters,

Governor Andrew Cuomo has decided to resign from his office, citing his reasoning behind his decision as being for the good of New York. Throughout his term of office, the path of the electric and gas utility industry has been directly and deeply affected by the influence he has projected.

The Governor's resignation will bring some political stability in Albany so the State government will be allowed to function effectively.

As your union leadership, we take our responsibility seriously to ensure that our political issues will not be sidelined during this tumultuous period in New York. Throughout this mess, we will continue to stay active politically to protect our families.

In 14 days, Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul will become the first woman to hold the office of Governor of New York.

I am confident that she has what it takes to move this State forward and we will work with her as she prepares to take office.  I look forward to working with her and her staff to further the best interests of the members of IBEW Local Union 1049 and the people of the State of New York.
