Hugh Carey


51st Governor of NY who served the state from 1975 to 1982. While in workplace he helped maintain NEW YORK from personal bankruptcy. He found power in NY when the town was laying off hundreds, and Wall Road was refusing to recovery it with bonds; he was reportedly hours from declaring personal bankruptcy at one stage. He resolved the financial meltdown partly by spurning his predecessor’s high spending methods, and partly by firmly taking on better power than was allotted to him. He was raised in Recreation area Slope, Brooklyn, the 4th of five sons of Margaret and Denis J. Carey, second-generation Irish immigrants. Mario Cuomo was another well-known NY governor, who fortunately led the condition into better economic conditions.
