There are a few conversations about a possibility that David Paterson, Lt. Governor of New York to be promoted to the position of New York Governor to replace Spitzer.
“…Paterson is a leading advocate for the visually and physically impaired. His 2004 speech at the Democratic National Convention marked the first time a visually impaired person addressed the convention. He is a member of the American Foundation for the Blind…” CNN Online – Spitzer’s Successor Would be the Nation’s 4th Black Governor
I would expect Paterson’s presence to influence the quality of local online accessibility and perhaps some general improvements in the New York built environment.
