NFIB Discusses New York’s 57th Governor, Kathy Hochul and How She Can Help Small Businesses

Date: September 01, 2021

Kathy Hochul, formerly New York’s Lieutenant Governor, became the 57th Governor of New York State on August 24th. New York State has not seen a change in Governor since the 2010 gubernatorial election, when Andrew Cuomo was first elected. Gov. Hochul is expected to bring a very different approach to leading New York State based on her time in the Albany, Congress, Erie County, and Hamburg Town Hall. New York’s Assistant State Director, Ashley Ranslow, appeared on The Capitol Pressroom, a statewide radio show to discuss Kathy Hochul as governor and what it means for small businesses:

“I think throughout her career she’s continued to engage with all stakeholders and listen. She’s shown a very collaborative and pragmatic approach. She’s not afraid to come to bipartisan solutions…She has a lot of experience in all levels of government and that really tends to give elected leaders a closer connection to the communities they represent, including small businesses.”
