NEW YORK — David Paterson became the 55th Governor of New York following a scandal involving predecessor Elliot Spitzer.
Much like his path to the governor’s office, his life has been anything but typical — from growing up with a disability, dealing with racism, to finding a voice in politics.
He’s sharing these life and career moments in a new book, “Black, Blind and in Charge: A Story of Visionary Leadership and Overcoming Adversity.”
Former Gov. Paterson joined the PIX11 Morning News to talk about it.
