He began by granting tax relief to farm communities in economic difficulty and promoted programs to provide security for the state's aged. In his second term, after a landslide victory in 1930, he called for a special session of the legislature, resulting in the first direct state aid ($20 million) to the unemployed. His reputation as Governor led to his nomination for the presidency in 1932, and he flew to Chicago to accept the nomination in person, the first candidate to do so. Guernsey Cross, a lawyer, had served in the New York Assembly through the 1920s, before accepting his post with Governor Roosevelt. Two items.
