King Day 2015: Cuomo Calls In

Governor Andrew Cuomo called in to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s Martin Luther King Day celebration today.  While other elected officials, including Mayor Bill de Blasio, City Comptroller Scott Stringer, Public Advocate Tish James and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand joined Sharpton, Cuomo participated by phone.  His call suffered some technical troubles, with a first attempt scrubbed.  Here is his second attempt, which began with technical problems but which eventually worked.

Update: Here are photos from the National Action Network King Day celebration.
