Paterson Staying Put
September 23rd, 2009

Gov. David Paterson shot down rumors today that he might step down now that the legality of his appointment of Richard Ravitch is no longer in question.

” I didn’t appoint Lieutenant Governor Ravitch so that I could resign and then he wouldn’t have a lieutenant governor. I mean, that makes absolutely no sense,” Paterson said.

Talk about the possibility of Paterson’s resignation heated up after word leaked that the Obama administration had expressed that Paterson should reconsider running in 2010.

Paterson staying put does not mean that Ravitch won’t be a busy man. The LG now has his hands full heading up talks on how to reduce the escalating budget deficit.
