Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo will be at the Capitol Theatre in Rome at 1:30 p.m. Thursday to make an announcement, according to local officials.

Mayor Jacqueline M. Izzo’s office sent an advisory encouraging the attendance of local officials at the announcement at the request of Rome Area Chamber of Commerce President William K. Guglielmo.

Guglielmo, Capitol Theatre Executive Director Art Pierce and other local representatives stated they had no information as to the subject of the announcement.

Mayor Izzo said she had no specifics about the governor’s announcement. “We hope it is very exciting,” she said with a smile Tuesday evening. When pressed for details, she said the substance of the visit is on “lockdown.”
