New York State Fair Nixes Governor’s Day
Now that Governor Cuomo has resigned, the Great New York State Fair has decided to resign Governor's Day at the fair this year.
According to a New York Upstate story, the fair has removed the day from its daily schedule on the fair's website. Cuomo would normally visit the fair on opening day, which takes place this Friday, August 20th. Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul has announced she will visit the fair at some point, either before or after taking over as our next Governor Monday night. New York Upstate is also reporting it is "unlikely" Cuomo will make a fair visit after resigning over sexual harassment allegations.
It is stunning the fall from grace the Governor has when you reflect on this same time last year when for the most part he was being lauded for his handling of the initial difficult stage of the COVID pandemic. Who would have imagined this time last year the Governor would have resigned, preparing for his last days in office?
