New York state Governor Andrew Cuomo gave a wide-ranging election-year speech in his annual address on Wednesday, pressing signature issues such as cutting taxes, revitalizing worn infrastructure and boosting the upstate economy. Cuomo, a Democrat who is up for re-election in November, delivered his hour-long speech to an enthusiastic audience in the state capital of Albany. The governor, regarded by some analysts as a possible presidential hopeful for the Democrats, was keen to stress his credentials as a strong fiscal manager, projecting a budget surplus of $2 billion in fiscal year 2016-2017 compared with a deficit of $10 billion when he took office three years ago.
