Cuomo wants to write a book on governing

May 8, 2012

He's held the titles of HUD Secretary, state Attorney General and Governor of New York State, now Andrew Cuomo wants to add "author" to his resume.

The Democrat has been Governor for 17 months and often uses the word ``historic'' as a modifier for his accomplishments, including the legalization of gay marriage.

Cuomo says he will write about his governing philosophy.

Cuomo says he doesn't plan a memoir, but a book on how New York is improving and about its brighter future.

His former  Chief of Staff is seeking a co-author and publisher for the project.
