NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Named 2019 U-Haul Salesman Of The Year As People Flee New York State
The United Census Bureau says people are fleeing New York much faster than any other state in the nation. As a result, U-Haul has named NY Governor Andrew Cuomo the 2019 U-Haul Salesman of the Year.
U-Haul CEO Joe Shoen said, “Governor Cuomo has been a valuable unofficial member of the U-Haul team. I want to personally thank Andrew for all his hard work. He has helped make U-Haul the #1 moving company in North America for six years in a row!”
More than 76,000 people packed up and shipped out of New York State during 2019. They are heading to states such as Florida, Georgia and Texas. All three are the fastest-growing states in the U.S.
