New York City mayoral runner-up Kathryn Garcia is one happy woman these days.

On Wednesday, New York governor Kathy Hochul appointed Garcia as the director of state operations.

“Kathryn Garcia and Neysa Alsina are tremendously accomplished and dedicated public servants,” Hochul, a Democrat, and former lieutenant governor said in a news release.

“They know how to run effective and professional operations, and they will be instrumental in making our State government work better for New Yorkers and restoring trust in government,” Hochul added.

Garcia came in second to Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams in the June 22 Democratic primary for mayor of New York City. Adams will face Republican Curtis Sliwa in the November general election.

Before facing Adams in the Democratic primary, Garcia led the city’s sanitation department for more than six years and also ran an emergency food distribution program during the early months of the coronavirus pandemic.
