Thank you for asking and I am doing fine. My normal life would've been going from my home.

For a few hours, and then up to our state capital, and maybe you know, cover the whole state by midnight, so to made parsley in his less travel and wars, zooming moving around the state is what I'm doing, so I have been able to actually touch. More constituencies speak to more elected officials I host meetings with physicist WBZ conference statewide yesterday that I would not have been able to probably pull off with the other schedule half, and so you whether it's talking to chambers women on businesses, faith based community I'm out there just talking about what our objectives are in. In terms of meeting the healthcare crisis, but now we're in the more desirable phase, which is talking about how reopened in a smart way based on the metric, so it is all consuming, but still very fascinating and We're GONNA come out of this with much more knowledge, understanding appreciation for people from all walks of life that were sort of quietly behind the scenes, and never got the recognition they deserve, and I also think this gives us an opportunity to state to really redefine ourselves and launched into the future, and sees on some of the best practices that have emerged out of. Of this crisis. Yeah, I'm glad you're doing well, and you've been working really hard to move the state into the next phase of a lockdown. Honestly I have to say it does make me a bit nervous. Given what's at stake? States begin to reopen too soon. So as are you in right now new. York state depends on the corner of the state of Western. New York upstate to just much that moved into phase to my way of buffalo buffets too early next week. Face to opens up a lot more of the businesses that he will been anxious to go to hair salons and. Retail with many limitations May. There's no nails being done his facials. It is just get a quick haircut with someone who's wearing literally a face shield and has had tested the taken test for Kobe before. They could. Even I'll serve you, so we have very tight restrictions to deal with just what you're talking about. The fear that people are going to have about. Emerging from his deep slumber. Being people have been doing everything they could to sacrifice, but to keep themselves and their families safe, and now they want. They have to be able to trust us in government that followed the doctors who followed the experts, and then we on the metrics that we feel it's safer to go out taking the same precautions we've talking about for. For three months now and so that's why we have the ability to open up slowly. We're not. We're not talking about restaurants. We'll be theaters or larger gatherings, just slowly opening up society and the economy, but nationally we passed this really grim milestone. We have now over a hundred thousand deaths from Colbert nineteen. You know it's still very scary to me on the. The other hand lots of businesses, especially small businesses. They're really hurting financially. There seems to always be this pushing pull. You know we're state. You're caught between which takes priority. Yes, and we are priority all throughout. This has been public health. We wouldn't be talking about reopening. Despite understanding deeply how extraordinarily painful this is for our small businesses and all the employers and I. I come out of a small business family I know the suffering that goes on, and you put your livestream into a low shopper, little of business and almost sign. You don't know if you're GONNA. Make it to the next month or not, so so what we've always said. Public Health comes I mean we can always bring back our economy. He'll be painful tough. Excruciating for our state, revenues are states in your body, sixty five billion dollar whole over the next couple of years already, so we're GONNA have to make some tough decisions, probably some cuts, but if people aren't alive, not protecting public health than what are we therefore so that is what has driven US early talking about reopening. Because we've seen the numbers decline really quite well now, it took a long time to reach the plateau. And if you follow along in New York state has a very transparent way to see what's going on at four dot ny dot. Gov You can really see our hostels ation rate, and it's really going downhill. The number of people use as down number of new cases. Way Down and we didn't see that we wouldn't be talking about reopening if we had stronger broader social safety nets. Nets here in the US what would be ideal in terms of a reopening schedule right in I'm thinking about New Zealand. You know I knew there are comedy is a lot smaller than ours you know, but they had a really strict walked down early on. You know, accommodate suffer bid. They're able to really crush the curve really quickly, so I guess the question is, how would we? We operate if our social safety nets were such that you know, we didn't have to worry as much about the economy, you know what would are reopening process. Look like well probably operate very differently, and what troubles me the most is that women have been hit so hard by this wing. Women were women than men are filing for unemployment. They're. They're not in the industries that are. Are being called back the earliest like construction manufacturing, those are very male, dominated field, so women will be going without their paycheck, and you longer period of time, and on the other hand, those who are working are in the most at risk jobs made therein the ones. They're the ones that are out there on the front line, a seventy eight percent of healthcare workers, the nurses and People that are working in the cafeterias and the Kitchens and and places where they exposed. Those are all women, and so women are really. Really caught in a bad squeeze here at this pandemic either unemployed, and if you're single head of household, you're having trouble. Put Food on the table. A hope and your unemployment checks come in, but let him have been anomaly delayed because of the overwhelming. The system or you're out there exposing yourself every day because you need that paycheck you going and working in a kitchen making someone's. Someone's food that they can pick up curbside and positive. Free back the virus your house, so the Connie's important, and it'd be nice if people knew that they didn't have to risk themselves. We also have to keep some basics functions going and we. We need people to still going to the grocery stores and sell our food and go into the pharmacies of make sure we have prescription. Prescription so those tend to be women, which is just a fascinating study, and whether or not society properly recognizes and appreciation to end compensates women the way they should.

"And we're going to provide the funds, the mentorship and the networking for these mothers and see that you have this really great advice or committee. That's been formed including a few women who've been on this podcast, so listeners may remember kilroy's Lauren bear and Regina Bateson. So tell me a little bit about than the role of the advisory committee advisory committee is I'm so excited about this. Because usually when you have an adviser committee. They're not going to be interacting with the candidates as much this advisory committee is going to be there to serve as mentors. One of the one of the hardest decisions. It's just it's just figuring out. How to do it? How to juggle it with children, the logistics of it, and you need to be able to have those behind the scenes, no nonsense conversations to talk to other women who. Both run on one and in bossed. But if they know how to do children, if they can give you that that emotional support that mentorship. That's what's really critical and would really helped me. I remember. I remember finding articles with a quote here there from grace bang or deliberate about running with children and thinking if they could do it I can do it. But since since I ran my campaign, I've got the opportunity to get to know them to have long conversations to talk to them about how they do that. And just to be able to have this conversation is so critical there there times during your campaign when you're running with children that you will be called every name in the book, and you will be called a bad mother. And if you can reach out to other moms who've done it, it's really helpful. And they're also donors who don't take moms small children as serious as other candidates. And so we want to be able to give the resources the funding necessary, but to put them in touch. So we're gonna put out our first group of endorsed candidates in early April. And we're going to schedule calls for for our. Candidates with our advisory committee members we actually just had a happy hour for for three candidates already applied for support. And some people who are very involved in my campaign with Lieutenant governor Kathy Huckle and just to be able to sit there for an hour or two and and have a few drinks and talk about what the experience is like it was really necessary. And it's inspiring people when they see other women doing this. They think okay, I can do this. And there are a lot of women who were actively working on my campaign who were volunteers who've now decided to step up and run because they thought I did that with small children. So now, they're running one of the things I loved about your campaign about several other campaigns that we slow around the country was how present your kids were in the campaign. And so I think that that's one of the other pieces that is interesting to me is getting donors in in the media to take you seriously. But also showing how important your kids on your family or to your life and and into the decision. Make if you are elected, you talk a little bit about sort of that that balance, you know, it's something we're seeing increasingly in candidates, but it's still not the norm. Yes. I actually had a reporter asked me during the campaign. She said when did you decide to run it yourself, and I've heard it into laughing. I genuinely wasn't sure what she was asking. If she was joking or not I said, well, what do you mean? Who else would I run us? And she said, no, you talk about your family, and you talked about your life and your struggles and your kids, and she did you don't shy away from being a mom, and you know, when Hillary Clinton would talk about being a grandmother, she said it really fell flat. And people didn't didn't connect with that. She said was a strategic decision to talk about your kids into included them. And I started to laugh I said, no, you know, when you have a one year old and a three year old, and I was nursing when I started the campaign. There was no way to separate who I am as a mother from who I was a candidate and people people need to see that in the past when women ran they hid their children. They didn't talk about their kids and. And I my kids were front and center not only because in the beginning..

Have you heard anything from anyone that gives you hope of a resolution here? I was not available during the time in which that meeting occurred. I was in a classified briefing, but I can tell you this. There's a real interest in trying to find some common ground at least among the rank. And file what we do know is it's gonna take Republicans and Democrats to agree that compromises the only way we're gonna come out of this with a successful outcome. And that means Democrats are gonna have to recognize that we control the Senate, and we control the presidency Republicans are going to have to recognize that that Democrats control the house.

"Feet from Indian coin. So he needs to do more while he needs to get out and my second. My second endorsing what I'm going to vote for is for teach out because he understands the environmental situation, and she does not take corporate money, and she's bringing up and the third is voting for Virginia. Parents in the state in my local state Senate primary. Andrea Stewart cousins against Andrea Stewart cousins. She's the hero of the anti DC movement. Though, she's the one who was supposed to become Senate majority leader, if the Democrats take a majority what what it calls into her about about environmental issues and she never got back Comanche. Totally unresponsive. Peres will get it. Thank you very much for your call. We appreciate it. Interesting. No one's mentioning the Lieutenant governors. Which to me is a very important race. Because you know, is he said this on the podcasts, but you know, for some people. There's this assumption that Cuomo's the parent, and so they're looking at the LG in the eighties race to vote for someone who they think can be a foil to write you mean the presumed winner. So there's a possible Williams are teach out would serve as a check and balance onto what they assume will be a Cuomo third-term, right? And and again interesting that both the times and the Amsterdam news, the only two papers that I see who that endorsed in both the governor and Lieutenant governor races. They did in effect split their tickets so Cuomo, but not his running mate the Lieutenant governor Kathy cocoa. They both endorse your money Williams who is running to be kind of progressive check on governor Cuomo and progressive sort of pressure point on him. If he gets into office. So that's the last thing that Andrew Cuomo wants us, right? So so two things number one in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when mayor Cuomo was running against Ed Koch for governor the times endorsed Ed Koch. But then also endorsed mayor Cuomo's running mate to be cautious running mate that person's name was Carl McCall who later went on to run for governor. But a second point then didn't the opposite happened. Mario Cuomo one. Yes, let somebody who was not his causes running-mate one. And that. Dichotomy created attention in that Lieutenant governor didn't surfer full-term he ended up leaving right because he had nothing to do. That was very different different dynamic, though, Harry, right? If we look at that ancient history of one thousand nine hundred eighty two that that Lieutenant governor was just marginalized governor. Mario Cuomo Germany Williams would not be marginalized a bull. He would be out there holding news conferences, issuing statements things like that because he sees his role differently. So. This is interesting history, of course, Andrew Cuomo. I runs for governor against Carl McCall doesn't wait his turn and gets crushed. This is two thousand two twenty years Witter, Jimmy Williams who just because of how term limits work in New York needed the next place to go to wants to be this needle or the spoil to the governor and the times and their gritted teeth endorsement of Cuomo Cuomo terrible guy disappointed, but he knows how to get things done. And if he's pressured maybe we can make him, you know, sort of enthusiastically embraced this idea of shifting the pressure to his left, and this impact has been Bill de Blasios since coming into office, and is the origin really of his fight with Cuomo. And a lot of ways is saying we can get the state Senate all the way to the left, and then the state can give me much more money for this millionaire's tax. I wanted the Cuomo who was then running for reelection at no interest in giving him and was furious. He kept asking me said, I'm giving you money already like don't make me raise taxes in an election year. So these guys have this incredibly interesting and entangled history with each other and Cuomo came into office after a bunch of dysfunctional governors. And he said I'm going to pass a budget on time. I'm not going to raise taxes, and they do a lot of like socially consciousness with some help for Mike Bloomberg bribes to recalcitrant previously state senators and that was good enough. And that's still where he's at is that the ground is very close to shifting under him as suddenly all these calendars are emerging from the left and his position as the essential central middleman is threatened and he's run in. That course, which has before and in nineteen eighty-two, even I won't get into the specifics in that second time, very nasty invective directed at at Koch. He's ruined some incredibly nasty ads at the end of this even as polls show him up by a tremendous amount of false accusations from the Democratic Party controls. They said they didn't know who put them out, and then it was some community advisor. And then it turns. Who was a senior advisor to the governor making false allegations about Cynthia Nixon's beliefs on Jewish and Israeli related issues just before the election. So it's incredible this old history. Keep cycling in these new people are coming up potentially if Giuliani wins, which I think you will. And observer does which I think she might. The the the dynamic changes, and he's no longer than man at the center, and he's struggling with that already. The last thing is he's a terrible campaigner. And he always has been. He was terrible McCall. He wouldn't really campaigned against effort four years ago. He's very gifted at wielding power, which is a different thing, you controls this large budget, these agencies that are off the state budget books that are billions of dollars more over two hundred forty six were. But we've so you're seeing him struggle in new and interesting ways to say something about how the Democratic Party is shifted beneath him while he's been in office and the expectations of voters have even as he's very likely. I think to win this primary. He's been damaged severely by this exercise to any of you think that that last minute Mailer, which the times editorial board. Everybody else called sleazy was a sign that Cuomo is more worried about how this race might turn out than the polls. Which have a big gap would indicate. Causey? I think it's it shows. There's a concern. But I don't know if it's about losing or just about being embarrassed, but a small victory, and it also shows what some of his campaign people think is appropriate to have government officials sort of step away from their government roles and campaign like this like that co mingling they they think that's okay, they think that's appropriate. They think these are the issues that voters are going to decide on when Andrew Cuomo the first time he was a candidate in two thousand two and several many times since he's projected himself as as someone who says, let's talk about issues, let's not be negative. And if you're talking about the other person that says you don't have anything to say about yourself. And then his aides do this. So that really says something about who Cuomo says he is and who Cuomo really is. And I also just, you know, alluding to what is he said, you know, sometimes a win isn't a win. Right. And so when he ran against that Moore wins ever ran against him for years ago. And she got a third of the vote which shocked most of New York he won. But it was slightly embarrassing. And I think he's really concerned about the percentages, especially because he thinks that he has a future in two thousand twenty see you can't hobble into success in your primary with your challenger an actress with no political experience getting over thirty percent. Although if if Cynthia Nixon gets just a third of the vote today and Cuomo gets two-thirds that would mean he beats her by more than thirty points. And that would be considered a good win for him at this point, wouldn't it? I it he frame it that way. But I think in I think he'll be okay, obviously in November. But he's not thinking about November. He's thinking about twenty twenty. And so is he thinking about twenty point. He's thinking about it. No one else. Well, asking because in the debate on on channel two he said he will not run for president the only way he would not finish out this next four year term if reelected is if an act of God strikes him dead. I mean, that's as close to politician actually rolling something out as I could think of right. And we know that Cuomo shown himself to be abundantly, trustworthy, these past few. I also think he's he's thinking about January if his coattails don't bring along Kathy wholefood food, Lieutenant governor. If if he doesn't bring along his preferred Lieutenant governor hidden attorney general if it also in Bolton's legislators to stand up to him, that's a very long term, and he may want that alternative option that he jokingly suggests but he's running as the progressive hope of New York to fight Trump. So is he also at the same time worried that the state legislature will go more democratic and stand up to him from the left is that what you're suggesting Ozzy. Yeah. Because Cuomo has a history of moderating positions that fifteen dollars minimum wage that he the New York Times editorial board and other people give him credit for that's phased in over six years. And it's not indexed to the price of inflation. Which means by the time, you get your fifteen dollars. It's not even worth fifteen dollars. So Cuomo is very smart. He's done some very good things. The safe act is a bolder step than most other governors have taken in the wake of gun violence. But there's other things he's done where the headline which really good. But when you look at the details activists who know the information say that's not enough. And some legislators might be willing to challenge him on those issues. Brian Lehrer on WNYC live in the green space for our primary day politics special, by the way, I'll be back tonight at nine o'clock, which is when the polls close at New York for an hour or so of election returns coverage we'll see what they can determine by ten o'clock tonight.

And we have our informal. Unofficial thoroughly unscientific primary exit poll going on the phones at two one two four three three WNYC two one two four three three nine six nine two and Christina. Here's how thoroughly unscientific. It is so far the only 'cause we're getting in the governor's race. And we'll get to state Senate and some of the other things as we go along in the show, the only 'cause we're getting so far in the governor's race are from people voting for Cynthia Nixon. Right. And so we don't take that as statistically Representative. But what we won't use this in my stats class next semester. But what does happen on talk radio all the time in various ways. And I think we're seeing an example of it right here is that the people with the most passionate about an issue or in this case, a choice tend to call in. And usually the people who were most unhappy with the status quo tend to call people call in to complain about something more than they call in to say that politician or that corporation or whatever is doing a great job. And I think it suggests a question though, which is who feel strongly about Andrew Cuomo. Right. We know that people feel strongly about Cynthia Nixon who are supporting Cynthia Nixon for all the progressive issue reasons and things like that. And yet KOMO does have this big lead in the polls. But are there are people out there? God I really like Andrew Cobb getting out there. So how things fit together the big lead? And that there's no apparent passion. Right. I think some of its name recognition not just from south. But first family, I think that some people are thinking about November and the bridge. The bridge. I'm going to put in quotes, my father, tappan Zee. Right. I mean, you know, I do think that some people are thinking about November and thinking that Cuomo is a better challenger Tamala narrow I think that unfortunately, Cynthia Nixon has some Trump effect where because he is so grossly incompetent. They're seeing her as as the celebrity with no real policy background or electoral politics background. So there doesn't seem to be real passion for Andrew Cuomo yet he knows how to raise money. He's got all the union endorsements. Any seems just fine. I do want to sort of circle back now, and we have to really think about turnout because so many legislators in New York have structured it such that they've made it so difficult for us to participate. I mean, I think New York has more draconian laws than say like Alabama, Mississippi, and this may be a case of the chickens coming home to roost for some of these incumbents because in a low turnout, raise it usually helps an incumbent, but when we see this groundswell that Harry Nause we're talking about with the left into quasi civil war going on in the party where you have these new people who actually are excited about insurgent candidates that actually does not service incumbents. Well, and this is how you can get knocked off with two thousand vote, and it flips the script on turnout perhaps that maybe in this scenario, low turn out actually favours at the Nixon because the people who will turn out or the people who care Ozzy. You're nodding your head. I my head whenever Chris Chris. Yes. But but think about your MTA ride whenever it's sort of. Okay. You don't feel the need to say. Thanks for my okay, ride MTA. But when it gets stalled, I go from zero to outrage really quickly, and I want to tweet about, you know, getting my money back for for this ride. If people are upset they will come out and vote if people think Andrew Cuomo has it in the bag, it's not such a big deal. It's raining. It's thursday. He'll he'll win..

"Instead gone public and resigned if you would like to answer that question either way, just go to our Twitter feed at Brian Lehrer. And we will talk about it later on the show as we get some results, but you go to see our Twitter feed and take our one question poll that we've linked to shed the anonymous op Ed writer have instead gone public and resigned. Meanwhile, one week from today Thursday. Yes, Thursday September thirteenth is primary day in New York state, as you know, we've been covering the major races, and we continue to do that right now with New York state, Lieutenant governor Kathy Hokkaido, governor Cuomo's running mate who is being challenged in the democratic primary by Brooklyn city council member Jimani Williams councilmember Williams was here on Tuesday. Lieutenant governor Hoke gets her turn. Now, one important thing for you all to know about this election before we get started. If you don't already know is that you can split your vote. In the democratic primary that is you can vote separately for governor and Lieutenant governor. And in fact, the polls show Cuomo were the big lead over Cynthia Nixon, but the Hokuto Johnny Williams race as much closer. So there's that, of course, we know a lot of polls wrong about a lot of things. So we offer that with all the grains of salt that they deserve. But those are different and the Lieutenant governor race, according to the polls is much closer and you get to vote separately in these two races. And with that Lieutenant governor Hokkaido welcome back to WNYC. Thank you. Brian. Delighted to be back and listeners we've been taking your questions for the candidates and will continue to do that in this segment. Two one two four three three WNYC for three three nine six nine two people. Don't think that much about Lieutenant governors, but anything you wanted to ask a Lieutenant governor and never had the chance as she Wentz. Reelection two one two four three three nine. Six nine to do you want to weigh in on the times op Ed should they have instead gone public and opposition to Trump and resigned? First of all, I want to commend the New York Times for their courage in putting this unsigned letter forward. This message that was basic sound like there's a hostage situation where they are captive in Whitehouse. But in their opinion, their patriotic duty requires them to stay and I'm going to respect that. I believe that we need to have people that are checks and balances outside is governor Cuomo, and I have been fighting hard against the administration. But it gives me a little more comfort to know that there are insiders who also think of our country, I and not satisfying Donald Trump's ego. What if somebody inside the Cuomo administration had published such an op Ed about this context? What would you be saying, then I would be looking at it very differently than he Donald Trump has with his extreme paranoia. If there are problems like that that someone needs to have come forward. I'd want to find out what they are. And make sure we're dressing them. Because. People deserve to have the best government possible. And I have served at every level council. Member county official a member of congress and now Lieutenant governor. So I understand is tremendous power government has the too good for people. But also as we've seen under Donald Trump incredible powered has to destroy people and destroy writes that we've cherished all of our lives. All right onto your own race, one of the biggest differences between you and tramonte Williams is he says he would treat the office of Lieutenant governor less like an assistant to the governor and more like a watchdog like the job of New York City. Public advocate is to the mayor. He says why wouldn't that be a better way to serve the people of New York, especially if governor Cuomo wins reelection. Well, it's an interesting premise, but I'll tell you why it won't work first of all the number one job of Lieutenant governor. And it has to have the experience necessary to step in for the governor. If necessary I bring that lifetime of experience and the knowledge of how government works. Secondly, four years ago, the democratic primary voters and the general election voters asked me to be governor Cuomo's partner, we have been a team for four straight years. And so you don't see the gridlock that I saw firsthand paralyzing Washington. When two men are in a fistfight with each other every day and things don't get done. So I would say as Lieutenant governor working as a partner we have been able to accomplish so much more increasing the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour ensuring that we have free education for young people who just have a better shot in life sexual assault on college campuses. I've been a champion to make sure that we Aratu Kate that and it's very beginnings. So I've worked hard, and I know that we can get more done working clever. There are other checks on the administer. It does not have to be summoned who in my judgment is more like a vice president someone who should be working closely. Like Joe Biden did with President Obama a follow up point from Germany Williams. From progressive politics standpoint, is that governor Cuomo has only done some of his most progressive things when he's under pressure from the left of the party when build Blasios elected on promising universal pre-k for the city only then did Cuomo adopted for the state when jeffer- teach out ran against them in two thousand fourteen on a fifteen dollars minimum wage among other things only. Then did he adopt the wage scale as his own with Cynthia Nixon running on legalizing, marijuana only. Then did he go from not? Yes on that. So to progressive democratic primary voters, why wouldn't they be better served having a dramatic Williams who keeps that kind of pressure on him rather than you who won't play that role when he seems to need it from their point of view. I reject the notion that he seems to need it. First of all, I personally have been a progressive. The most Republican part of the state of New York my entire life. It is much harder to flow that is western New York. And I have been a member of congress who lost my seat because I refuse to vote against the Affordable Care Act. I still with Brock Obama when he needed my support. I've also been a champion of LGBTQ rights way back before it was a popular thing to do including transgender individuals. I stood up as a county official to protect them and a champion for women's right to choose. I come from an area of the state where I was told when I first ran for office for council if you did not accept the right to lifeline. You would never win. I rejected that I stood shoulder to shoulder. Women have Planned Parenthood and reproductive rights. So first of all I am a progressive. Secondly, governor Cuomo ensured that we had marriage equality three years ahead of the rest of the nation. He didn't need any pressure to do that. He did it because it was right? The safe act. He did that in response to a crisis. When we saw children slaughtered in their classrooms. Not far from here in Connecticut. So. I reject the notion that governor Cuomo needs other people to tell him to do what's right? The two of us worked together as partner, and we put the interest of the people of New York. I every time and William slogan is any blue won't do meaning not just any democrat in this blue state and to that point the victory of Alexandria, Cossio Cortez in queens and the Bronx and the victory of Presley in Boston over an incumbent democratic congressman like the one here was over a very liberal democratic congressman Joe Crowley are examples of the new waves of progressives and younger people of color who were seen as more dedicated activists for change. Even if you and drew Monty Williams agree on most issues, why shouldn't voters in this year's democratic primary. If they're inspired by Cossio Cortez an eye on a Presley, see Jimani Williams as the more meaningful choice for this moment. I I commend them on their elections. And as women as someone is the only woman in statewide office. Currently, I'm proud to see more women stepping up, and I encourage that I have been trying to get more women to run for office since I I found hot what it takes to get elected. Secondly, I have many bright blue in a sea of red, and that takes more courage and political guts tenacity, then to declare your certain shade of blue in Brooklyn. And so I have been there on issues like I said reproductive health for women women's right to choose ensuring rights pretty LGBT community at a time. When my challenger even waffled on those issues to his own detriment, and that became an issue when he ran for city council, and that was pointed out by members of the media, not myself. So I'm not sure what color bluer talking there. But I have been blue any red part of our state, and this state is magnificent. It's larger than the five boroughs, although there normally important, but the majority of votes in a general election are going to come out of upstate New York where I'm from. And I know my goal and the governor's coal is to make sure that we elect Democrats across the board and do not have a Republican governor. Owner or Republican Senate any longer. So that's our focus. So I'm embracing the energy out there. A lot of young people have supported my Wraith. Particularly young women are excited that I've paved the way for many of them, and I'm going to continue doing so on Germany Williams, past statements on abortion rights and same sex marriage. He says those were at one time personally held positions they were never his policy positions. And maybe one capacity is Mario Cuomo the governor's father who was so famous in his day, as you know for saying as a human being as Catholic he's personally opposed to abortion. But as a politician, it's not his place to tell women what choice they should make as a matter of law, so buddy Williams on safe ground there. Now, I will tell you. It is twenty eighteen the country has moved a long way and particularly when women's reproductive. Rights are literally under assault as we speak. There are confirmation hearings going on in Washington DC and Kevin off is selected. I believe he will be as the next supreme court Justice. It is no longer chicken little saying, the sky is falling the sky will have fallen, and we need strong people who are personally committed to women's reproductive health and always have been even in tough times are tough circumstances. Like, I have to stand up to Donald Trump, and this new supreme court because we're going to have so much more to do here in the state of New York, we have to codify Roe v. Wade immediately in January, and I'm looking forward to continue to campaign to elect Democrats. So Andrew Stewart cousins is the rightful leader of the Democratic Party and will protect women's rights. Always have always will never wavered, but guest is New York state Lieutenant governor Kathy Hokuto running for renomination next. Thursday's New York state democratic primary against Brooklyn city council member Germany Williams, councilmember Williams was here on Tuesday for his candidate interview. You Lieutenant governor Hokkaido is here right now for hers, and.
Democratic Lieutenant Governor Primary Debate
"Neighborhood network in partnership with the league of women voters of New York stain. Got them use that presents race to represent a Emon election initiative. Hello. I'm Ben max executive editor of Gotham gazette. New York voters will head to the polls on Thursday, September thirteenth for party primary elections in many statewide and local races, including certain party nominations largely on the democratic side for governor attorney general and members of both houses of the New York state legislature also on the democratic primary ballot will be the choice for Lieutenant governor. Today. We're pleased to bring you the first televised debate in the race for the democratic nomination for Lieutenant governor between the two candidates running including the incumbent Lieutenant governor is the second highest ranking official in state government with constitutional duties, including to serve as president of the state Senate and to serve as acting governor. When the governor's out of state the Lieutenant governor becomes governor in the event of the governor's death impeachment or resignation. The race to be the democratic nominee for Lieutenant governor has been closely watched contest and contentious as we head toward the September boat. In just a minute, you'll hear from both candidates on a wide range of issues, including they're very different visions for the role of Lieutenant governor. What they see as major issues facing New York and what they plan to do about them if elected. So let's get to the debate. Joining me are the democratic candidates for Lieutenant governor of New York. The challenger New York City councilmember Jimani Williams, and the incumbent Lieutenant governor Kathy Hoke will. So thank you both very much for being here start with you council member Williams, and we're going to alternate who gets to answer the questions. First council member Williams, you're applying for the job of Lieutenant governor. How do you describe that role? I thank you been for being the moderate for this debate thing. And then for opening this space, I have this question. Thank was hopeful for joining us for this discussion. What I suspect is going to happen. The next thirty minutes is a fundamentally different vision and perception of what the Lieutenant governor's office is can and should be for most Lieutenant governors, including the one I'm debating the Lieutenant governor's office has been one that simply does what the governor says to do for lack of. Terminology is the heirs and the voice and the eyes of the governor. I reject that and I believe that tenant governor's office should be the is the voice and the eyes of the people of the state of New York. I, I believe the job is to serve the people of the state of New York and not any governor. Now, Lieutenant governor should work and partner with the governor, whether it's he or hopefully she when the doing the work of the people of the state of New York productively. But when they're not when the governor says, we have universal Excelsior program, but only three percent of students have it on the governor says that we're banning frac gas, but we have a building plans to have frat gas, come into the state. Someone has to step up stand out and have the courage to say the emperor has no clothes, and that we actually lip service is not matched up with actions. You and the ten governor HOGAN. Can you describe the role, ten governor as you see it delighted to again, thank you. Into my challenge money Williams council member. Thank you for being here today. Very simply. The role of tenant governor officially is to be experienced prepared to step in to serve as governor should the need arise. You also preside over the New York state Senate as its president. But four years ago, the people of the state of New York elected me to be a partner with governor Cuomo because basically they want us to get things done and I'm proud of the record of accomplishment, ripe able to champion causes as the only woman in statewide office that are near and dear to my heart, fighting for women's reproductive rights, ensuring that we have workplaces in college campuses where women can be free from sexual assault and harassment increasing the minimum wage because the majority of minimum wage earners are women, many single heads of household also fighting the heroine opioid crisis, where I personally know the pain is someone who lost a nephew just a few years ago. So I have been launched into an opportunity to. In partnership with the governor, but to use my voice and I sure the council member as a strong Amon, I do not do it. Men tell me to do. I am an independent strong woman and always have been
