Trust In Andrew Cuomo's Inaugural Speech Was Not Verified

Trust, but verify~  Ronald Reagan.  (he almost always presented it as a translation of the Russian proverb, "doveryai, no proveryai")

 Let's apply this to Cuomo's Inaugural Speech.    Look at all the trust, believe, and restore Cuomo asks you to do.
Cuomo says in Inaugural speech,"That’s what this administration is going to be all about — restoring the pride, making the government work, my friends. So people once again trust the government and trust the institution. So that people once again believe in government, in themselves and in this state.  And that’s what this is all going to be about. Rebuild the government, restore confidence, restore trust, get the people of this state believing once again. Believe in government, believe in themselves, believe in each other, believe in our future. Believe in our potential, believe that we can fulfill this dream of New York and we’re going to make this state the Empire State, greater than it’s ever been before."
Now look at his failed record as Attorney General: Cuomo in the Albany Swamp   and  Cuomo's M.O.

Here's what
Cuomo says in Inaugural speech, about immediate action:
"There is no more time to waste. It is a time for deeds, not words, and results, not rhetoric. It is time for a bold agenda and immediate action. There is no more waiting for tomorrow and there are no more baby steps, my friends."
But, he still hasn't  followed up on most of California's Brown's proposals reported here, beginning with

1. Brown has already pledged to cut his own office budget by 25%.

Cuomo says in Inaugural speech, "The special interests who have ruled our government for years must give way to the people’s agenda." and "Number 2 is going to be cleaning up Albany and restoring trust because Bob [Duffy] is right, you have nothing without trust." and "Too often government responds to the whispers of the lobbyists before the cries of the people." 
But, "Nearly half of the people on Cuomo's transition team and economic advisory council either are registered lobbyists themselves or work for organizations that lobby New York's state government ?

Cuomo says in Inaugural speech, "They can’t afford the never-ending tax increases in the State of New York and this state has no future if it is going to be the tax capital of the nation. We have to send that signal this session by passing a property-tax cap."

But,  3. [Governor] Brown to take aim at several tax breaks and subsidies that have been fiercely guarded by the business lobby; and 7. [Governor]Brown targeted a recent change to state business tax formulas that has saved corporate California roughly $1 billion.

Cuomo says in Inaugural speech, "The words “government in Albany” have become a national punch line. And the joke is on us. Too often government responds to the whispers of the lobbyists before the cries of the people. Our people feel abandoned by government, betrayed and isolated, and they are right."
But what's Cuomo doing about,  
"An eight-month probe by state Inspector General Joseph Fisch of one of the largest-ever state contracts — a 30-year franchise to run a downstate casino worth potentially billions of dollars — reveals an almost breathtaking array of abuses by top Democratic officials controlling the legislative and executive branches." 
or what's Cuomo doing about Cuomo suspending criminal prosecutions by the Attorney General, when Cuomo becomes governor?
or what about NY corruption in Federal Court and Cuomo
