Bronx Assemblyman Peter Rivera is Governor Andrew Cuomo's choice to lead the state Labor Department.

Cuomo made the announcement at the 25th annual SOMOS conference of Hispanic leaders in Albany, hosted by Juan Manuel Benitez of NY1 Noticias.

The governor said he hopes Rivera will focus on putting recent immigrants to work.

If confirmed by the state Legislature, Rivera will be replacing Colleen Gardner, who will take a senior role in the Cuomo administration.
