THE BRONX - Andrew Cuomo has been elected the next governor of New York, but he may face a tough road ahead.

Cuomo, a 52-year-old Queens native, says his first step as governor will be to balance the $315 million state budget gap without raising taxes. Throughout his well-funded campaign, the former state attorney general says he plans to clean up Albany, lower taxes and bring jobs to the state.

Cuomo also needs to charm a state where 83 percent of New Yorkers called the government dysfunctional, according to a Quinnipiac poll in June.
