Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Monday that he has nominated former Gov. David A. Paterson to serve as a member of the Board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
“Governor Paterson has dedicated his life to working for the people of this state and I am excited that he will continue his public service at the MTA,” said Cuomo. “Governor Paterson’s energy, expertise, and experience will benefit the millions of New Yorkers who rely on the MTA every day.”
Paterson was the 55th governor of New York. Prior to becoming governor, he served in the New York Senate for more than 20 years, becoming Senate minority leader in 2003, and served as lieutenant governor.
Paterson’s nomination is subject to confirmation by the state Senate.
