DENVER–New York Gov. David Paterson spoke about state budgetary issues at a party for Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan) at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Denver.

He was referring to a battle he had with the Assembly over how much and what to cut, with the compromise calling for $427 million in budgetary cuts this year and $600 million next.

Paterson thanked Silver for his efforts, and said he “hoped (state Senate Minority Leader) Malcolm Smith was in the room” to hear his comments.
