NYC Government is known for its highly centralized governmental structure. Much like the Federal Government , it is divided into three branches: executive , legislative and judicial. The Mayor heads the Executive branch and is responsible for all city services, enforcement of city and state laws.
The Executive Branch is headed by the Governor, who is elected for a term of four years. The Governor, who must be at least 30 years old, a citizen of the United States and a resident of New York for five years, serves as the State’s chief executive and Commander-in-Chief of its military and naval forces.
All State governments are modeled after the Federal Government and consist of three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. The U.S. Constitution mandates that all States uphold a “republican form” of government , although the three-branch structure is not required.
