Andrew Cuomo Career and Achievement
Andrew Cuomo was appointed to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development in 1993, a member of President Bill Clinton’s administration.After the departure of Secretary Henry Cisneros at the end of Clinton’s first term under the cloud of an FBI investigation,Cuomo was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate to succeed him as Secretary of HUD. Cuomo served as Secretary from January 1997 until the Clinton administration ended in 2001.
During Cuomo’s tenure as HUD Secretary, he called for an increase in home ownership.He also pushed government-sponsored lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to buy more home loans issued to poor homeowners in an attempt to end discrimination against minorities.In a June 16, 1999, speech, Cuomo declared that one purpose of the program was to fight against HUD’s abolition. In August 1999, Community Builders distributed a letter to community groups to fight against proposed tax cuts.
In 1998, Clinton-appointed HUD inspector general Susan Gaffney testified to a Senate committee that she was the victim of “‘escalating’ attacks on her office by Cuomo and ‘his key aides,’ including cooked-up charges of racism, insubordination, malfeasance, and general dirty-dealing.” In 1999, Gaffney’s office concluded that “most (15 out of 19) Community Builders’ goals were activities rather than actual accomplishments” and that Cuomo’s initiatives “had a crippling effect on many of HUD’s ongoing operations.” Gaffney retired in May 2001, shortly after the department reached a $490,000 settlement with a black employee who had accused her of racial discrimination in passing him over for a promotion.
Potential U.S. Senate appointment — After Hillary Clinton became President Obama’s choice for U.S. Secretary of State, then New York governor David Paterson was charged with appointing a temporary replacement until a special election.
Cuomo was seen as a leading contender for this appointment.Caroline Kennedy (who is a first cousin of Cuomo’s ex-wife) was another leading contender, but withdrew for personal reasons two days before Paterson was set to announce his choice, leaving Cuomo and U.S. representative Kirsten Gillibrand as the most likely appointees.On January 23, Paterson announced he would appoint Gillibrand to the U.S. Senate.
Governor of New York — Cuomo took the gubernatorial oath of office at 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2011, succeeding David Paterson. During his first year as governor, Cuomo worked to pass an on-time budget that cut spending without raising taxes, made a new deal with a large state-employee union, signed ethics reform legislation, passed a property tax cap, worked to enact a same-sex marriage bill with bipartisan support and restructured New York’s tax code.
In a February 2019 opinion poll, Cuomo’s approval rating dropped to 43 percent, the lowest of his tenure as governor, and a full 50% said they disapproved.The poll showed an eight percent drop from January 2019; it was taken after Cuomo signed several pieces of progressive legislation, including an expansion of abortion rights and access and stricter gun laws, suggesting that the legislation may have upset certain voters and contributed to the drop; however, the majority of voters agreed with his position on both issues.By early 2020, Cuomo’s favorability rating was up to 77 percent, a record high.
