Gov. Peterson Recognizes New York State Comission on National Service

Governor Paterson continues to support Americorps, City Year and volunteers across the state. We look forward to working with him and hope that he will join us at a CYNY event soon!

“Governor David A. Paterson today encouraged all New Yorkers to explore volunteer service opportunities with a community-based organization to help meet critical local needs. Increasing New Yorkers’ participation in community service and volunteerism is an integral part of Governor Paterson’s statewide and national agenda.

Because of their shared interest in this issue, Governor Paterson appointed First Lady Michelle Paige Paterson to serve as Honorary Chair of the New York State Commission on National and Community Service. In this role, First Lady Paterson will lead the Commission in its efforts to engage every New Yorker across the State in volunteerism and community service. Former First Ladies Silda Wall Spitzer and Libby Pataki served as the Commission’s Chair and Honorary Chair, respectively, during their husbands’ administrations.”
