The Jets have not triumphed a Super Bowl since 1969, and Hochul teased the common sports euphemism of “rebuilding” for a shaky team trying to molted dead weight and start over again to contend for wins.
In the campaign-style speech — Hochul’s bid for a full term in 2022 has been complicated by the access of New York Attorney General Tish James and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams into the June primary — the governor mobilized business leaders around her dream for the Empire State’s post-pandemic future.
“Are you with me to preserve and come back stronger New York? ” Hochul said as the crowd hooted in applause. “And show the world what New York exceptionalism looks like? ”
She promised to spend large-scale in the next position fund, predicting as much as$ 1 billion to fix potholes.
“I like to spend money, ” Hochul said. “Get used to it.”
Hochul has been a major proponent of President Joe Biden’s recently ratified infrastructure invoice, boasting it as the catalyst for going several major items over the finish line.
The Empire State’s trimmed of around $10 billion out of the$ 1 trillion legislation has opened the door to other projects previously seen as long shots, such as “capping” the Cross Bronx Expressway, which would involve parks and other public seats are under construction above the regions where the street flows in bunkers below street level.
In a punch at her precede, Hochul invoked the longstanding feud between outgoing NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, but without mentioning them by name.
“The era where the New York State Governor is fighting with the New York City mayor is over, ” she said, once again drawing applause from the pro-business crowd.
