Paterson Speaks Out
March 12th, 2008

Here are a few more statements on the Spitzer resignation — one from the new, as of next Monday, governor and the other from the state’s Democratic Party.

From Lt. Gov. David Paterson:

Like all New Yorkers I am saddened by what we have learned over the past several days. On a personal level Governor Spitzer and Silda have been close and steadfast friends.

As an elected official the Governor has worked hard for the people of New York. My heart goes out to him and to his family at this difficult and painful time. I ask all New Yorkers to join Michelle and me in prayer for them. It is now time for Albany to get back to work as the people of this state expect from us.

From the New York State Democratic Party:

The New York State Democratic Party looks forward to working with Governor Paterson to move forward with an agenda for change.

Over twenty three years in public life David has distinguished himself as a bridge builder, a conciliator and a voice for progressive values. He will be a Governor for all New Yorkers and a great leader of the Democratic Party.

In the coming weeks and months we plan to work closely with him and Democrats across New York to continue to make progress on the issues that matter for working families.

Our thoughts are with the Spitzer family during this difficult time.
