Paterson Keeping Patrick Foye On at ESDC

No shakeups at the state’s development agency for now.

Warner Johnston, a spokesman for the Empire State Development Corporation, confirmed this afternoon that Patrick Foye, downstate chairman of the state agency, isn’t following Governor Spitzer out the door.

Mr. Foye works at the pleasure of the Governor and has no plans to leave his job, Mr. Johnston confirmed.

A former Long Island Power Authority deputy chairman and once an active member of the Conservative Party, Mr. Foye assumed his role at the start of the Spitzer administration.
