“In the face of adversity, we always persist, we persevere, we prevail," Hochul stated on Jan. 1. 2023, when she took her oath of office as the 57th Governor of New York.
Hochul's office released a number of reasons why New York State is a safer state to live in 2024 as compared to 2023.
"This year, New York has faced significant obstacles: mounting costs for families, a rise in hate crimes and hate speech, and an influx of migrants and asylum seekers. These issues, along with longstanding challenges to increase the housing supply, expand access to child care, and lower rates of crime to pre-pandemic levels, had New Yorkers looking to their leaders for help," Hochul's office stated in a press release.
