DiNapoli Statement on Paterson Inauguration

Audio Available icon

The foundation of the public’s trust in our state government has been shaken. Now more than ever we need leadership that is focused on ethics and integrity.

David Paterson is the right man at the right time for New York. He understands that strength and humility are not mutually exclusive. His ability to find compromise and common ground is the right prescription to heal the wounds our state has suffered.

Today marks a new beginning for New York, a fresh page in our state’s history. This is a moment for courage and integrity. Governor Paterson has both.
