About Immaculata Cuomo (Giardano)

The quotable Governor's Ma

Inspired, he [Mario Cuomo] puts in a speakerphone call to his mother, still living in the old neighborhood, ostenstibly to verify the story. He says, "Ma! What did Papa tell me about the bull and the cow? A writer here wants to know." He lies with delight. The disgust of Immaculata Cuomo, 86, crackles over the phone. "What kind of stupid person would ask you what your father told you about sex?" She asks. "It shows that they're all stupid. They shouldn't be writing books. They should be reading books." [1]

Mario Matthew Cuomo, 50, inaugurated as New York state's 52nd governor on New Year's Day 1983, resolved to uphold his chief campaign promise. His administration, unlike the federal government, would not neglect the needy.
"No family that favored its strong children -- or that, in the name of even-handedness, failed to help its vulnerable ones, would be worthy of the name," Cuomo said in a speech interrupted 14 times by applause. "And no state or nation, that chooses to ignore its troubled regions and people watching others thrive, can call itself justified.
"We must he the family of New York -- feeling one another's pain, sharing one another blessings, equitably, honorably -- fairly, without respect to geography or race or political affiliation."
