Paterson Withdraws Mack Nomination
September 8th, 2009
Gov. David Paterson has decided not to reappoint David Mack to the Port Authority Board of Commissioners.
“Late this afternoon we learned that David Mack failed to cooperate with an investigation led by the Attorney General’s office related to the State Police,” read the release from Paterson’s office.
“Tonight, we have reached out to Mr. Mack to inform him that we intend to withdraw his nomination to the board of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and to inform him that we would like him to resign from all other government related appointments.”
The move comes following the report of Attorney General Andrew Cuomo that alleged that the leadership of the State Police has been influenced by political concerns.
Earlier today Senate Democrats took the consideration of Mack’s nomination off of their Thursday agenda.By David King on September 8, 2009, 11:08 pm
