Paterson Will Swing By Party Tomorrow

ALBANY—Tonight is David Paterson’s big holiday fundraiser, and tomorrow the governor will swing by an end-of-year party organized by DL21C.

Elizabeth Caputo, the chair of that group, wrote say that the party at Club Imperial will be “2010 candidates galore.” She said Comptroller-elect John Liu is also expected. The cost of a ticket is $10 for non-members; the event is not a campaign fund-raiser.

Paterson is listed as a “special guest” and is expected to stay for an hour at the mixer; it’s unclear if he’ll speak. In the past, DL21C has hosted Eliot Spitzer, members of Congress and hosted a debate on health care between Anthony Weiner and Betsy McCaughey. It describes itself as an “independent organization of young, progressive New Yorkers interested in learning about and becoming active in Democratic politics, current events and issues on local, state, national and international levels.”

Caputo said Attorney General Andrew Cuomo was also invited, but declined with a scheduling conflict. It looks like he hasn’t been featured at any in the past few years. Paterson Will Swing By Party Tomorrow
