So I'm thinking, Mr. Cuomo, what's this going to cost me?
"The real power of the governor lies with the people of the state," he said. "Democracy only works when the voice of the people rings strong and rings true. I need you to help me."
I am left with only one thought: "Mr. Cuomo, get this job done!" You needn't tell me how pivotal these times are, nor how failure is not an option. We wasted far too much money and time and are now out of both. Mr. Cuomo, you asked for my help, well here it is, I'm with you. I'm buying what you're selling! I want a leader to lead me through these difficult times. I'm with you, but boy you better not lead me down a primrose path. We are at a very serious time, and we've been let down by so many before you who've promised to solve these problems. I know you can't do it alone, but please understand I've bought this sales pitch too many times before to not be very skeptical. How can I know you'll give us a government as good as the people of this great state?
The answer is simple. What choice do we have?! Mr. Cuomo, please be a true and honest leader who does what he says he will do. Be a servant of the people who elected you. Please don't let us down, Mr. Cuomo. Will be watching, rooting and helping as needed, but you sir, are driving the boat.
