The Governor and Fiscal Responsibility

Yesterday, Governor Paterson spoke to New Yorkers about the serious economic difficulties our state is facing. From Wall Street to Main Street, families here find themselves making tough choices in order cope with the rising costs of energy, health care and education.
The Governor again emphasized his continuing commitment to fiscal responsibility, and he reiterated this commitment yesterday by announcing that his administration will immediately address the size of our state work force, examine further cuts to state agencies and explore new opportunities for public-private partnerships. He also called for a special session of the state legislature next month to find ways to help New Yorkers deal with these issues.

You can read the speech here, and watch it here.

I am proud to stand by the Governor and work with him as he helps guide our state through this difficult economic period.
