That Was Fast
March 12th, 2008

Here is the first statement (which flew into my inbox less than 20 minutes after the announcement from the governor’s office) received on the Spitzer resignation. I’m sure there will be many, many more to come.

Joe Williams, executive director of Democrats for Education Reform:

We were as shocked as everyone by the news of the last few days involving Governor Spitzer. The governor was a champion for education reform and played the lead role in lifting the cap on the number of public charter schools available to New York State children.

As longtime fans of David Paterson we are extremely confident that the hard work of providing a quality education for every child in the state will not only continue, but will take on a whole new sense of appropriate urgency. Gov. Paterson is an inspiring human being, one of the smartest individuals with whom we have ever worked, and a warrior on behalf of the families who crave and need excellent public education options for their kids.

We look forward to working with the new governor to make the dreams of hardworking New York parents a reality.
