Becoming co-chair of the Democratic Party in New York state will allow Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner to do more of what she already does. Miner is expected to be elected co-chair of the party when members meet this week.

At the meeting, the new co-chairs of the party, chosen by Cuomo, were introduced.
