Cuomo begins 2nd term as NY governorPosted: Updated:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo kicked off 2015 with an inaugural address marking the start of his second term.
Cuomo delivered his speech Thursday, just hours before his father, former three-term Gov. Mario Cuomo, passed away at the age of 82.
In a break from tradition, Cuomo decided not to deliver his remarks from Albany. He instead spoke at One World Trade Center and again in Buffalo.
The governor highlighted his goals for the next four years. He also discussed ongoing struggles between black communities and law enforcement, saying in part, "The situation has evolved into one which everyone is talking and no one is listening. It must stop."
Cuomo took his official oath of office in a private ceremony.
