Personal Life

Kathy Hochul was born Kathleen Courtney in Buffalo, New York, the second of six children of Patricia Ann “Pat” (Rochford) Courtney, a homemaker, and John P. “Jack” Courtney, a college student and office worker at the time. During Hochul’s formative years, the family experienced financial hardship and for a period resided in a trailer next to a steel company. But by the time Hochul was a college student, her father was employed at the IT firm he would later run. She is from an Irish Catholic household.

Kathy Hochul got involved in politics while attending Syracuse University. She organised a boycott of the college bookstore due to exorbitant prices and tried in vain to rename the school’s stadium in honour of Ernie Davis, a star running back who passed away from cancer before he could play in the National Football League.

Kathy Hochul was successful in getting the institution to stop investing in South Africa’s apartheid system. She received a “A” in the spring of 1979, according to the student newspaper The Daily Orange, which used campus changes as justification for the grade. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Syracuse University’s Maxwell School in 1980, and a Juris Doctor from the Catholic University Columbus School of Law in 1984.

Hochul is married to William J. Hochul Jr., a former US attorney for the Western District of New York who also serves as Delaware North’s senior vice president, general counsel, and secretary. They have two youngsters. Hochul declares himself a Catholic.

Hochul is one of the creators of Kathleen Mary House, a shelter for women and kids who have experienced domestic abuse. She formerly sat on the board of the company. In addition, she co-founded the Village Action Coalition and served as a trustee at Hamburg, New York’s Immaculata Academy as of 2011.


Kathy Hochul started working for a Washington, D.C., legal firm after graduating from law school, but she didn’t find the work fulfilling. Before running for government, she served as the legal advisor and legislative assistant to U.S. Representative John LaFalce and U.S. Senator Daniel Moynihan as well as the New York State Assembly.

As a supporter of small businesses that were being threatened by Walmart stores, Hochul became involved in neighbourhood issues and, in the process, attracted the attention of local Democratic leaders. The Hamburg Town Board decided to appoint her on January 3, 1994, to fill the vacancy left by Patrick H. Hoak’s resignation to take over as town supervisor.

On the Democratic and Conservative ballots in November 1994, she was elected to a full term. She was then re-elected in 1998, 2002, and 2006. On April 10, 2007, she announced her resignation. Richard A. Smith, a former state assemblyman, took her place. [21] She spearheaded attempts to get toll booths removed from some of the New York State Thruway system while serving on the board.

Kathy Hochul ran in the May 24, 2011, special election to take Chris Lee’s place in the 26th congressional district of New York. She was the candidate for the Democratic Party and the Working Families Party. During her campaign, Hochul’s house in Hamburg, which is barely outside the 26th district, came into question, but it did not prevent her from running for the seat. She moved into the neighbourhood a month after winning. She was standing against lee.
