Andrew Cuomo is the 56th governor of New York, first elected in November 2010, after four years as the states attorney general. He was overwhelming re-elected governor in 2014.
Before that, he served from 1997 to 2001 as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Clinton, aggressively pushing homeownership through cheaper mortgagesan approach that some say helped precipitate the housing-market collapse the following decade.
As governor, Cuomo has pushed a wide-ranging economic development agenda, especially in upstate New York, while generally being hands-off when it comes to major projects in the city. His office, however, makes him one of the two heads, along with the governor of New Jersey, of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In that capacity, Cuomo has broad say on issues affecting New York Harbor, the airports and several transit arteries.
Cuomo, born in December 1957 in Queens, is the eldest son of the late New York Gov. Mario Cuomo.
