The Latest from Governor George Pataki
Governor George Pataki
George E. Pataki began as Mayor of his hometown of Peekskill, New York, before going on to serve as both a New York State Assemblyman, State Senator and eventually serving three terms as the 53rd Governor of New York State, ending in 2007.
George Pataki’s path to the New York State Governor’s office was the result of a stunning electoral upset, one in which he unseated the nationally known three-term governor – the late Governor Mario Cuomo. Pataki had to win in not only a deep-blue state against the odds, but also had to go up against an incumbent with not only more money and name recognition, but who was also a national liberal icon.
