“I first met Mario Cuomo as a high school student in 1993. While our political philosophies were quite different, his thoughtfulness, focus and eloquence during our brief exchange was inspiring. Mario Cuomo was quite possibly one of the greatest orators of our time, and an iconic symbol of the American Dream. My thoughts and prayers are with Matilda Cuomo, Governor Andrew Cuomo and their entire family."
