Statement of June O’Neill in support of Richard Ravitch to the position of Lieutenant Governor

“I applaud Governor Paterson’s bold and courageous decision, using his legal authority as Governor, to appoint Richard Ravitch to the position of Lieutenant Governor.

Governor Paterson has demonstrated leadership in calling the Senate back to extraordinary session and conduct the vital business of behalf of New Yorkers. And, he is now going to break the gridlock in the Senate by appointing Richard Ravitch, who has dedicated much of his remarkable career to public service. Ravitch is an experienced statesman who will do well in assisting Governor Paterson’s continued efforts to stabilize New York’s economy.”
