Paterson Finds New Resolve

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Gov. David Paterson has less than six months left in office in a term that expires on December 31, and he has been making the most of his time left in power, forcing the state legislature to enact most of his budget, and vetoing out the parts he doesn’t like.

Paterson, who took over for the disgraced Eliot Spitzer in March 2008, had a rocky first two years as governor. He was plagued by scandals, and seemed to change his mind frequently, as well as his political tactics.

Lately, Paterson has been more resolute and has even pioneered new powers for a New York governor.
