Leadership Series: David Paterson on New York Past and Present


·         We enjoyed candid discussions from elected officials in our “Leadership Series.”New York Governor, Honorable David Paterson on his tenure as Governor and what lies ahead for New York with moderator David Pollak.

David Paterson served as New York’s 55th Governor from 2008 to 2010 following the resignation of former Governor Eliot Spitzer. During his tenure as Governor, Paterson is credited for drawing attention to New York’s fiscal woes, stretching the budget-drafting powers of his office, and enacting sweeping reforms on a wide range of issues facing New Yorkers. 

The former Governor led the movement to create permanent reforms to health care in New York State, successfully negotiated an MTA bailout plan, and introduced landmark legislation to end legal discrimination against same-sex couples in New York.
