A member of the Democratic Party, he was elected to the same position that his father, Mario Cuomo, held for three terms. Cuomo resigned from office on August 23, 2021 amidst numerous allegations of sexual misconduct. At the time of his resignation, he was the longest-tenured governor in the United States. Born in Queens, New York City, Cuomo is a graduate of Fordham University and Albany Law School. He began his career working as the campaign manager for his father in the 1982 New York gubernatorial election. Later, Cuomo worked as an assistant district attorney in New York City, entered the private practice of law, founded a housing non-profit, and chaired the New York City Homeless Commission from 1990 to 1993. Cuomo served as assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development from 1993 to 1997. From 1997 to 2001, he served in President Bill Clinton's Cabinet as the 11th United States secretary of housing and urban development.
