SARANAC LAKE - Gov. Andrew Cuomo stopped by the Hotel Saranac Saturday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a speech about how he has helped the North Country.

Cuomo congratulated Fred Roedel III and his family business for buying and reopening the historic hotel, praised the North Country as one of the most "special places on the globe" and reiterated some proposals from his recent state budget.

The governor's speech ended with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Hotel Saranac, reopened last month by Roedel Companies, which bought it in 2013 and spent years restoring it to its original 1927 glamor. Then Cuomo, his daughter Mariah and some of her friends from New York City went snowmobiling at Camp Gabriels in Paul Smiths with state troopers and forest rangers.
