Former New York Governor Laments Crime Concerns in State
(ConservativeHub.com) – As crime issues continue in the Big Apple, politicians from various generations are speaking up about it. Former Democratic Governor David Paterson, who led New York State from 2008 to 2010, recently spoke with a radio show about how “unsafe” his state capital now feels.
On Sunday, October 9, Paterson told John Catsimatidis on his WABC Radio show “Cats Roundtable” that he felt “unsafe” in New York City for “the first time in my life,” despite having been there in the late 80s and 90s when organized crime was more prevalent. He lamented that assaults on the subway are seemingly constant these days and reprimanded his Democratic party for not addressing the immense crime from a small group of offenders.

The former governor also said that unless lawmakers make a significant change, citizens may vote them out in the midterms as they demand safer cities.
Paterson’s warning came just days after a shooting incident occurred outside the home of Republican candidate for governor and current Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY). Now, Zeldin, a proponent campaigning for law and order, has become even more fired up about ensuring his city is safe for the next generation. He recently told Greg Gutfeld of Fox News he would fire Manhattan’s District Attorney Alvin Bragg on his first day in office as a first step to protecting New Yorkers.
