DiNapoli Statement on Lieutenant Governor Ravitch Decision

The Court of Appeals decision to uphold Governor Paterson’s appointment of Lieutenant Governor Richard Ravitch resolves an important question facing New York.

Lt. Governor Richard Ravitch has the experience and skill to help our state through these difficult fiscal times. His resume is beyond impressive. He gets results.

Now it’s time for the state to focus on making the difficult choices that will move New York forward. I welcome Lt. Governor Ravitch to that process.
