'He's Made a Difference'

"Throughout Andrew's career as a prosecutor, a Federal administrator and most recently as Attorney General of the State of New York, he has made a difference for the people he serves," said Patrick J. Lynch, president of the New York City PBA. "Andrew Cuomo is focused, determined and capable and we need his leadership in Albany."

"Andrew Cuomo has been and will continue to be a partner in government who will fight for the people of New York and enforce the laws of our city and state," said DEA President Michael J. Palladino.

"Andrew Cuomo has already proven that he will fight for the men and women of our city and state and the New York City Sergeants look forward to continuing to partner with him as Governor," said SBA President Edward Mullins.
