State of The State, NYC Edition

State of The State - NYC 1-9-17Governor Andrew Cuomo began a three day, six speech tour today, replacing the traditional State of The State address in Albany with a roving series of regional appearances.  He spoke today to an invited audience of approximately 200 on the 64th floor of 1 World Trade Center.  Far above any protesters or discordant views Cuomo’s 40 minute speech provided an array of new programs and funding, a congratulatory look at his six years in office and an outline of how Cuomo may seek a prominent national role during the Trump presidency.

Here is Cuomo’s full speech (but omitting his introduction of select attendees):
