  George Pataki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
George Elmer Pataki (born June 24, 1945) is the current Governor of New York State, USA and has held that office since January 1995, and as of June 2006 is the longest-serving of the current 50 U.S. governors.
Pataki and Giuliani appointed the LMDC to distribute nearly $10 billion in federal grants and to oversee the construction of a memorial, though as of September 2006 the latter has not begun.
Pataki came under criticism when it was revealed that he and his staff did not inform Donohue that she was acting governor the first time, until after Pataki had woken up and resumed power.
