Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be delivering his second inaugural address in two separate locations on Thursday, Jan. 1: the first in New York City at One World Trade Center at noon, and a second in Buffalo at 4:30 p.m.

Cuomo already signed his official oath of office on Wednesday.

In addition, he plans to deliver his 2015 State of the State Address on Jan. 7 at 1:30 p.m. in the Empire State Plaza Convention Center.

The New York Post reported that some members of the state Legislature may boycott these addresses in a protest over their failure to win their first pay raise in 16 years.

During his first inaugural address in 2011, Cuomo kept the ceremony low key, saying, “When we actually do something and perform and help the people of the State of New York and we make government function, then we are going to have a big party and celebrate, and not before.”

At that time he promised “jobs, jobs, jobs” and said he would clean up Albany.

He also said his task would be: “Rebuild the government, restore competence, restore trust, get the people of this state believing once again.”

Newly elected Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is also taking office at the start of the New Year.
