ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Don’t expect a lot of glitz and glamor for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s second inauguration.

The Democrat said on public radio’s “Capitol Pressroom” Monday that he plans to keep the pomp and circumstance to a minimum when he is sworn in to a second term early next month.

Cuomo says he’s not one for extravagant balls, and that he wants to have a serious ceremony that reflects the state’s serious challenges.

A date for the governor’s inauguration hasn’t been announced. Cuomo beat Republican Rob Astorino last month to win a second term.

Lawmakers will kick-off their 2015 session in early January.
