Commentary: Gov. Paterson On Mentor Percy Sutton

New York State Governor David Paterson remembers his friend and mentor Percy Sutton. Sutton convinced Paterson to run for the State Senate in 1985. The governor says, "I can still clearly recall the day that he called me down to his office, asked me why I was ambivalent about running for the seat, and upon hearing my response, said, 'By the time you are ready the position may no longer be available.'"
