CUOMO CREDITS HIS DAUGHTERS
In his official address, which aired live on NBC, Andrew Cuomo began by stating that New York was the epicentre of the pandemic. However, with time, the state could change that narrative and "save over 100,000 citizens."
The governor went on as he mentioned that he would not have been able to pull it off without his team's help. Cuomo shared that his daughters were there for him, and when he would have shed tears, they helped him stay strong. He said:
"I want to thank my Cara, Mariah, and Michaela for keeping me grounded…"
PLAYING THEIR PARTS
During his speech, Andrew Cuomo mentioned that his daughter, Michaela, who graduated from Brown University, was set on having a graduation party, but plans changed due to the health crisis.
