Representative Antonio Delgado was chosen to fill the job of lieutenant governor by New York Governor Kathy Hochul following the announcement of Lieutenant Governor Brian Benjamin’s resignation on May 3, 2022. Hochul made the news shortly after Benjamin’s statement. On May 3, 2022, Delgado was sworn into office and officially began his tenure. On May 25th, Delgado was formally inaugurated into his new job as mayor, marking the commencement of his tenure in that post. This event marked the beginning of Delgado’s time serving as mayor. In the primaries held by the Democratic Party in 2022, he sought the nomination for the role of lieutenant governor. Those primaries took place in that year. He won the primary election with a huge majority of the vote and will now be one of the candidates running against Hochul in the general election in November. The election will take place in New York. His adversary was dispatched with a minimum of difficulty.
Delgado spent his upbringing in Schenectady, New York, but he currently resides in Rhinebeck, New York, with his wife and their two boys. Coltrane is the oldest of the three and Maxwell is the younger. Schenectady is where Delgado spent his childhood after being born there. When he was a young boy, he was able to observe the dedication that both of his parents had to their jobs at General Electric and to the community of Schenectady, where they lived and raised their family. In addition, he was able to observe the dedication that both of his parents had to their children. After completing his undergraduate studies at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, where he was honored with the Rhodes Scholarship in recognition of his accomplishments, he went on to earn degrees from Oxford University and Harvard Law School upon his return to the United States of America. After his return, he practiced law in New York City. Prior to his selection as Lieutenant Governor of New York, Delgado served as a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing the 19th Congressional District, which is situated entirely within the state of New York. During this time, he was an attorney who specialized in business litigation, and he devoted a significant amount of his pro bono time to work related to the reform of the criminal justice system. During this time, he was also involved in a number of activities related to the reform of the criminal justice system. During this time, he was also actively engaged in a variety of activities that were connected to the improvement of the nation’s justice system. In addition to that, while he was working at his other job, he also worked as an attorney who specialized in complex commercial issues. He did this work on the side. Delgado is able to connect with people who come from a diverse range of professional and personal contexts as well as walks of life as a direct result of the breadth and depth of the experiences he has had in both of these spheres of his life.
Delgado was the first person of color to be elected to represent a congressional district that was located in the upstate region of a state in the annals of the history of the United States Congress. During the time that he was in office, he made it a top priority to work together across party lines with state and federal legislators, as well as other state and federal agencies, in order to improve the quality of life for those who live in New York. In addition to that, he worked along with a variety of other government entities. Delgado was an effective congressman who got things done, whether it was advocating for universal pre-kindergarten, supporting our nation’s veterans, expanding access to affordable health care, or protecting our small businesses and small farms. Delgado was a member of the House of Representatives from California. He was successful in all of these areas and many others as well. He was the sole person accountable for it. During the time that he was a member of Congress, he was recognized by a diverse collection of organizations for his efforts that were nonpartisan. Additionally, 18 of his bills were ultimately passed and signed into law by two separate presidents. During this time period, he was also honored with the Distinguished Service Award on more than one occasion.

He was a member of the House of Representatives during the 102nd Congress. As soon as the outbreak occurred, Delgado’s objectives shifted, and he immediately began campaigning for government help for first responders, vital staff, and small businesses. This started happening right after the beginning of the sickness. He was successful in obtaining the much-needed loan repayment relief for small businesses, and the ten point eight billion that was delivered to the counties, cities, towns, and villages of New York State as part of his Direct Support for Communities Act was used for economic recovery.
