After kicking off his campaign last Saturday morning at Hofstra University, Governor David Paterson came to Rochester Laborers Local 435 on Fourth St. where Rochester’s youth drum line, the Mighty Liberators, marched him into a room of over 200 supporters.
Junior Anna Dumont, a former intern for Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and Congressman Eric Massa, worked with the Paterson campaign team to arrange for transportation for students from the UR’s Information Technology Service Center to Laborers Local. Eight students took advantage of the opportunity to attend the event.
Paterson was first welcomed by Business Manager for Laborers Local 435 Bob Brown and New York Assemblymembers Susan John D-Rochester and David Gantt D-Rochester.
