Statement From Attorney General Cuomo On The Appointment Of Kirsten Gillibrand To The United States Senate


"I extend my warmest congratulations to New York's new United States Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand.  I have had the pleasure of knowing her for many years.  Kirsten came to Washington to join me at HUD where she did a superb job serving the nation.  I have deep respect and affection for her.  Her victory in the 2006 Congressional race defied the pundits and the polls.  Kirsten is a genuine friend.  I am sorry I could not be with her today, but look forward to many opportunities to partner with her in the future to help the state during these difficult times.”
