New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who resigned Wednesday, was well-known to the apparel industry from his career as an assistant district attorney breaking up a Mafia-run trucking cartel. Now the industry is hoping to get to know the next governor, David Paterson, a little better.
"David is a person who has a broad view of what makes New York City tick and a broad view of the industries in New York such as tourism and fashion," said Lloyd Williams, president and chief executive officer of the Harlem Chamber of Commerce. "He understands the connecting point of those industries to jobs and training. I would certainly expect David to be a key person working with the apparel industry."
