The Governor of Long Island is the titular head of the Long Island state government. The Governor is directly elected by the population of the state and serves a four-year term under normal circumstances; however, if the state legislature is dissolved early, the Governor must face an election as well. There are no term limits.
While the Governor is directly elected, it is against the law for a Governor to represent an established political party or to stand as a partisan candidate.
