Another candidate has announced they will challenge Andrew Cuomo for governor. This time it’s Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro, who offered a political indictment of Cuomo’s practices and temperament in office.
The 42-year-old Molinaro made his announcement in Tivoli, the small Hudson Valley village where he grew up, and where he became mayor, at the age of 19. He also served in the State Assembly before holding his current job running a county that is part-New York City suburb, and part-country. He says he considers public service his life’s calling, and a run for governor as the next step.
